Do a Google search on "Continental dog breeds," also known as hunt, point and retrieve (HPR) breeds. I believe the DD is considered a continental breed. Some of these breeds have goofy names (Pudelpointer?!) and are a little obscure but can be found. The premise is that people needed a versatile dog that can do it all. I doubt any of them will retrieve as well as a lab or stand game as well as a dedicated setter, but for versatility you are likely going to sacrifice some level of specialized skill.

Also look up the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association.
