German Pointer

Three types of German Pointer are currently recognised by the UK Kennel Club. They differ in coat type and body proportion.

German Pointers are Hunt, Point and Retrieve multi-purpose gundogs, developed by crossing scent hounds with traditional English Pointers. The resulting breed is graceful, energetic, trainable and friendly with tremendous stamina and drive.

The German Longhaired Pointer is the largest of the three German Pointer breeds. The German Shorthaired Pointer is the smallest. The German Wirehaired Pointer sports a bristly coat which protects him from thorns and brambles without being impractically long, whilst only slightly taller than his short haired cousin he gives the impression of being both larger and heavier.
