Living Area: This breed is a bad choice for apartment life and will quickly grow frustrated with containment. It is happiest in a country home, or perhaps a farm, with land to explore and freedom to exhaust its bundles of energy. It is possible to keep a Griffon in a large house, providing thereís a yard with ample space. The dog will appreciate room to maneuver, but space isnít necessarily a substitution for the freedom of a country life. The dog prefers a cool climate and isnít suited to Mediterranean temperatures, or stuffy humidity. It will not enjoy being kept in a kennel or being tied down for any length of time.

About this Breed

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a renowned hunting dog of medium size, with a distinct rough double-coat and a square muzzle. It is recognizable by its wild mane of hair, with thick eyebrows and large tufts of soft fur for a beard. The rugged wiry outer-coat is complemented by a softer undercoat, but the percentage of hard to soft fur will vary from dog to dog. It has a muscular build with a lengthy body, and is well equipped for hunting in the countryside. In fact, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon positively loves to be out in the open. They possess incredible levels of energy and make great jogging companions, preferring to be exercising freely as opposed to locked up in a kennel or apartment. This dog is striking with its large oval eyes, which nearly always come with brown or yellow irises. It has a brown nose. You will notice an eager expression, quite fitting of the dogís lively behavior. They are used regularly as companions for on-foot hunting, due to their excellent sense of smell and fine balance between obeying a masterís orders and independent endeavor. The chest usually reaches to the elbow of the dog, allowing for athletic activity and the physical demand that its nature brings. Both the forequarters and hindquarters are well angulated. The shoulders are laid back with a relaxed look, and the pasterns are sloped gently. The Griffon has very firm webbed toes, and the foot is padded. Any dewclaws should be removed.
