Dog lead (7)

Ross

I think it could be either:

Which length description are you looking for?:

5

7

pointer

I believe this clue is a double definition.

'dog' is the first definition.
(I know that pointer is a type of gun dog)

(thesaurus)

(Other definitions for pointer that I've seen before include "Dog; cursor" , "Arrow" , "Indicator" , "Gun dog" , "helpful tip!" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
