Wirehaired Pointing Griffon - Guide to Wirehaired Pointing Griffons

Description: The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is medium sized with a distinctive rough and wiry coat which has an overall unkempt appearance. These dogs also have facial furnishings which are characteristic of griffon-type dogs. The development of this breed is credited to Eduard Karel Korthals - a young Dutchman who had a strong passion for hunting and dogs. Korthals desired the perfect, versatile gun dog for the walking hunter that could cover any terrain, especially marshes and swamps in the Netherlands. Korthals had been spending time in Germany when he was asked by one of his friends to manage the famous Bibesheim kennel. So in addition to his managerial duties, he also started his selective breeding program in 1873. When developing the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, Korthals used mostly griffon-types and also included Boulets, Barbets, spaniels, retrievers and pointers from Germany and France. It took just a little less twenty years to perfect the breed and the first standard was written by Korthals in 1886. Nothing in the standard has changed since then.
