The German pointers tend to be docked in the US, but wouldn't be in the UK these days.  English pointers don't appear to have the ticked coats -- just white and a solid color, or occasionally a solid color.  I've only seen docked German Pointers and undocked English setters at shows.  But German pointer seems like what you've photographed since the English have outlawed docking other than actual working hunting dogs and then only by a vet and not as short as some spaniel dockings were in the past.

I wasn't referring to docked tails, but in North America the sport of dogs diving into pools is called Dock Diving, as in diving off of a dock.  I wasn't referring to the docking of tails. A Dock Dog is one who participates in this sport.

My first thought on seeing the dog was English pointer because of the tail, but remembered that UK German shorthaired pointers would not currently be docked (info from The International Falconry Forum and other sources).  

 

If this was part of show competition, then dock diving and dock dog.
