Today's German Wirehaired Pointers are said to be a result mainly of these breeds: Pointer, Foxhound and Poodle.

German Wirehaired Pointers were brought to the United States in the 1920s. The German Drahthaar Club of America was formed in 1953, but the name was officially changed to the German Wirehaired Club of America when the breed was admitted into the American Kennel Club in 1959.
