About German Shorthaired Pointer

Country of Origin, History of the breed

German hunters of the 1800s wanted a dog with a good nose that would point within a reasonable distance for a man hunting on foot. They wanted a dog that could retrieve both fur and feather on land and in water. They also wanted a tracker. To get such an all-purpose hunting dog they bred Old Spanish Pointers, Hounds of St. Hubert, Foxhounds, and other hounds. After adding the English Pointer into the breeding, they got a faster, more energetic dog.

The German Shorthaired Pointer is the ideal weekend hunter’s dog. He needs little training for hunting purposes and is a great family dog.

These dogs are successful in the show ring and in obedience as well as tracking trials, field trials, and hunting tests.
