Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon (WPG) has an uncertain origin, some historians say France and some say the Netherlands. They are a mixture of the Setter, German Pointer, Barbet, German Griffon and various Spaniels. These dogs are not common but they are fantastic hard working dogs that would be an asset to any hunter.

This breed has a muscular, athletic body and straight, toned legs. They have a long powerful muzzle and large round eyes which give them a friendly look. The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon has large floppy ears, and a thick rough coat that will protect them colder climates as well as cold water. Naturally this breed has a long slender tail, but for show purposes it will be docked.

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a loving, happy and loyal pet that will make an excellent companion as well as an excellent worker. They are great family dogs because they interact well with children and other family pets but tend to be more energetic and will need more exercise per day compared to other breeds. Even though they are considered a more difficult dog to raise, they will do well with an owner who is able to be firm and stay patient with them while training.
