The fork-nosed Tarsus Catalburun or Turkish Pointer is a rare breed. If you manage to find one of these pooches, you'll have an intelligent, loving family dog that will protect you and your pack. With training and socialization, this pup can be patient with children, but you'll want to watch them closely with strangers and other dogs. As a hunting dog, the Tarsus Catalburun has lots of energy and will need at least 45 to 60 minutes of daily exercise. They tend to prefer living inside with their owners but do like to get out in the yard. Combine daily walks with playtime to keep them happy.
This lovable pooch can be hard to find, but if you do get a Tarsus Catalburun, you'll have an affectionate companion who will want to be with you all the time. It's important to give your furry pal plenty of time and attention to help prevent separation anxiety — offer them an hour or more of activity each day.
