The German Wirehaired Pointer is a dog that was developed in Germany in the 1800s for the main purpose of hunting. Being a griffon type breed of dog, the German Wirehaired Pointer developed into a leading gun dog for Germany in the late 20th century. This is a dog that was developed through careful crosses between the German pointer and other breeds.

The exact lineage of the German Wirehaired Pointer is not known. However, its possible contributors are the Wirehaired Griffon, Poodle-Pointer mixes, Bloodhound, and Foxhound. And with a lineage of so many dogs, the resulting German Wirehaired Pointer proves to conform to the characteristics of a hunter dog.

However, the most important characteristic of the German Wirehaired Pointer is its water and weather resistant coat that is wire-like. The outer coat is wiry, harsh, flat lying, straight, and is usually one to two inches in length. In addition to this, it has a dense undercoat that helps provide the insulation from the cold which is practically invisible in summer.

German Wirehaired Pointers are basically willful, and enjoy roaming.
