The German Wirehaired Pointer is a breed of medium to large-sized dog that is a member of the griffon typing. As the name suggests the breed originates from Germany and was developed during the 19th century. The breed is also commonly known as the 'Deutsch Drahthaar, ' and the 'Vorstehhund' in Germany. The breed was developed for the purposes of being a rugged and versatile hunting dog that was capable of working closely with either a single hunter or a small party of hunters. The German Wirehaired Pointer was developed to be able to traverse varied terrain (from the mountainous regions of the Alps, to the dense forests present with Germany, to open fields and farms surrounding small farms) on foot. The people who developed the breed wanted the German Wirehaired Pointer to have a coat that was both easy to maintain but would also be able to protect the dog from heavy cover and cold weather. The German Wirehaired Pointer therefore has a weather resistant, water-repellent wiry and dense undercoat. The German Wirehaired Pointer also have a straight, wiry, harsh and flat lying overcoat that is about two inches in length. The German Wirehaired Pointer was developed for the main purpose of point and location upland game, being fearless while hunting 'sharp' game (such as foxes), being able to retrieve water fowl and land birds and be a devoted and trainable companion. The temperament of dogs is normally affected by the following factors: individual personality, heredity, training and socialization. It is therefore important to make sure that you meet the puppy's mother before purchasing a German Wirehaired Pointer. It is also important to make sure to thoroughly socialize your German Wirehaired Pointer with strangers, children and other animals during its puppyhood. Generally speaking, the German Wirehaired Pointer thrives on human companionship and is very affectionate, loyal and playful. It is important to note that as a working breed, the German Wirehaired Pointer has a high amount of energy which needs to be expended. If the German Wirehaired Pointer has a buildup of energy it is likely to develop destructive behaviors due to boredom or hyperactivity.
