    German Shorthaired Pointer |Germany|

    The German Shorthaired Pointer developed from ancient German hunting dogs, or bird dogs, that had been influenced by Spanish pointers and native scent hounds. The scent hound heritage gave rise to the German Shorthaired Pointer’s highly tuned scenting abilities, which, with the addition of some English Foxhound and later English Pointers, led to a versatile hunting dog. It is an all-purpose working breed that is noted for its intelligence and loyalty. It can also make an excellent family companion for an active home.


    The initial gene pool for the German Shorthaired Pointer was varied, and a number of early dogs were registered with unknown parentage. The pedigree register was established in 1872, with Hecktor I being the first dog entered into the German Kennel Club stud book. Hecktor was liver and white and described as hound-like in appearance. Nero and Treff were two other important early foundation dogs for the breed.

    German Shorthaired Pointers are lively, intelligent puppies that exhibit their hunt, point, and retrieve instincts from a young age.
