German Wirehaired Pointer...


The German Wirehaired Pointer is a griffon type breed of dog developed in the 1800s in Germany for hunting. It became a leading gun dog in Germany in the later part of the 20th Century. The German Wirehaired Pointer is a well muscled, medium sized dog of distinctive appearance. The German Wirehaired Pointer is very affectionate, active and intelligent. Eager to learn and loyal to its family, it needs a handler who is consistent in approach. They like to be occupied and enjoy working for their owner.

The coat is weather resistant and, to some extent, water-repellent. The German Wirehaired Pointer is an average shedder. The coat should be brushed about twice a week with a firm bristle brush. Some stripping of the coat is needed, but this isn't very difficult. The hairs should be hand plucked occasionally depending on the condition of the coat. The ears must also be checked regularly and kept clean.
