German Wirehaired Pointer

The German Wirehaired Pointer originated in Germany and was bred to work alongside their hunting master and find or 'point' out the game after it was shot. This breed is thought to be a mixture of the Bloodhound, Wirehaired Griffon, Foxhound and Poodle mixes, giving them their excellent hunting skills as well as their fantastic agile and speedy gait.

This breed has a muscular body, strong, toned legs and triangular, floppy ears which give them an innocent look. The GWP (German Wirehaired Pointer) has a long, powerful muzzle and large circular eyes. Naturally their tail is long, but for showing purposes will be docked. Their fur is the most valuable asset to them because this will not only protect them from the bitter cold, but also from rougher terrains where they must retrieve their owner's game.

The German Wirehaired Pointer is energetic, responsive and very devoted to their families. They will make a great family pet because they interact well with children and will get along with smaller animals in the household. This breed will need a large amount of exercise to remain calm, so if this is not done they might become destructive.
