My GSP was both a house and hunting dog until she died. Helped raise a couple of kids and was a great companion. She was a little hyper but not so bad you could not live with it indoors and out.
She was a hunting fool though. If you got the gun out she would have a heart attack getting in the truck. With minimal training she would out hunt most trained dogs we went with. She covered the field before the pointers even got going. In old age she went blind but would still point quail at 20 feet.
If I still had any quail around I would have another one and it would sleep inside.
