German Shorthaired Pointer...

 

The German Shorthaired Pointer is a breed of dog developed in the 1800s in Germany for hunting. The German Shorthaired Pointer is descended from the old Spanish Pointer, which was taken to Germany in the 1600s. From that time until the first studbook was created in 1870, however, it is impossible to identify all of the dogs that went into creating this breed. Since the German shorthaired pointer was developed to be a dog suited to family life as well as a versatile hunter, the correct temperament is that of an intelligent, bold, and characteristically affectionate dog that is cooperative and easily trained.

The German Shorthaired Pointer's coat is short and flat with a dense undercoat protected by stiff guard hairs making the coat water resistant and allowing the dog to stay warm in cold weather. Little grooming is required, though this dog can benefit from regular brushing with a firm bristle brush. The coat can also be kept clean and shiny by wiping it weekly with a wet towel. The ears should be checked regularly.
