German Shorthaired Pointer - Guide to German Shorthaired Pointers

Description: The German Shorthaired Pointer is well-balanced, symmetrical, athletic and lean. The development of the breed began in the 1870s when hunting in Germany was no longer restricted to the nobility. Sportsmen could not afford to keep several specialized breeds and needed a hunting dog capable of tracking, pointing and retrieving on land or in water. Original crosses included descendants of the old Spanish Pointer, English Foxhound and local German tracking hounds. The German Bird Dog and English Pointer make up the basic foundation for German Shorthaired Pointers.

This breed, known as the Kurzhaar in Germany, featured superior scenting abilities, endurance, agility, and intelligence. By the early 1900s the breed was officially recognized by the various kennel clubs and the breed soon gained popularity as a true gundog on this continent as well. The German Shorthaired Pointer adapts well to both city and country life, however, be warned that this is an extremely active dog which requires plenty of exercise and play.

The German Shorthaired Pointer was first admitted into the The American Kennel Club (AKC) studbook in 1930.
