    Wirehaired Pointing Griffon |Netherlands/France|

    Wirehaired Pointing Griffon |Netherlands/France|

    This breed’s ancestors are mentioned as early as 500 BCE, but the modern development of the breed traces only to the nineteenth century and Eduard Korthals, an avid hunter. Korthals wanted to produce a hunting dog with a protective coat and plenty of stamina that could work on all terrains, including in water, in marshes, and on uplands. He bred griffons, spaniels, setters and German and French pointers to achieve his desired result, and then marketed the new dog across Europe. Today the breed is not widely known but is nonethe- less a superb gun dog and an excellent companion.
