German Wirehaired Pointer - Guide to German Wirehaired Pointers

Description: The German Wirehaired Pointer is medium sized all purpose dog with a most distinctive functional, wiry coat. The breed's origins date back the mid 1800s in Germany when sportsmen were in need of a tough, rugged and all terrain hunting companion with a coat protective of harsh elements. The exact lineage is not known, although the best educated sources indicate Wirehaired Griffon, Poodle-Pointer mixes as well as Bloodhound and Foxhound as possible early contributors. 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.
