Hello Maribeth,

We have taken the item back to the board and the Breed Standard Review Committee. They have suggested a change to the bite section and the Board has agreed to submit it to you. They also had a few more recommendations. Please find those attached.

Please note, the Proposals 1-5 noted, will be separate items to vote on. This is not a blanket proposal. They will be noted separately, just as we have submitted to you.

Thank you for your recommendations and for your time.

Regards, Lynn Pettinato

GSPCA Corresponding Secretary

Mission Statement:

The standard review committee has been tasked with evaluating the current German Shorthaired Pointer Standard, aligning or clarifying areas to work in conjunction of our new Illustrated Standard. There have been no updates or revisions to the standard since August 1992. There is no intent on this committee to change anything in the standard. It is the mission of this committee to determine if areas of the standard require clarification or if any descriptions can be simplified. Any revisions will be presented to the membership for a vote. The goal of this committee is to have completed our work by the end of 2016.
