The German Wirehaired Pointer is a breed of dog developed in the 1800s in Germany for hunting.


The coat is wiry and the breed has a typical beard. The color can be liver, black, or either color with white. Commonly the head is a solid or nearly solid color and the body is speckled, with saddles or large patches of solid color.


This version of German Pointer makes a good family dog and a working dog with tolerance for a variety of conditions.


Hip and elbow arthritis can be an inherited problem.


This gun dog was created by selective breeding from various other breeds, including the French Griffon, Pudelpointer, Short-Haired Pointer, and Broken-Coated Pointer.
