Hunting dogs German Shorthaired Pointers
German Shorthaired Pointers are mulit-talented dogs and are considered to be one of the most versatile hunting dogs. They will not only hunt but will also point, retrieve, trail, and game-kill. They can also be used for drug detection work and for border and security control.
This versatility arose through the purposeful blending of various breeds beginning as early as the 17th century. In the late 1800s, this breed was recognized in Germany, and it was registered with the German Kennel Club in 1872.
German Shorthaired Pointers are an excellent choice for those wanting full time hunting dogs, or a dog for weekend hunting trips, or fulltime culling work as well as a family companion and watch dog.
Usually slightly longer than it is tall, the German shorthaired pointer is built for agility and endurance. It has muscular shoulders with straight front legs that are closely muscled. In proportion to the body, the head of this breed features clean lines and medium size, almond shaped eyes.
The long muzzle allows the dog to seize and carry game with its powerful jaw muscles.
The tail is set high, hanging down when the dog is at rest and held horizontally when active. Dew claws are removed.
The color of the coat is often a combination of liver and white or it may be solid liver and roan, ticked and/or flecked.
