(Deutscher Drahthaariger Vorstehhund) (Drahthaar) (Germen Wirehaired Pointing Dog)The German Wirehaired Pointer is a large dog with many cute and unique features. A square head is the beginning of this wonderful breed and leads to their long muzzle which ends with a large reddish-brown colored nose. From their muzzle, wiry hair feathers out like a short beard. Sitting on top of their small head are two long, floppy ears. A long neck leads to their semi-broad shoulders. Long skinny legs lead from their thin body to rabbit-like feet. The fur covering their body is, as the name suggests, wiry and comes in silver or white with red or brown markings.

Note, a GWP is not a Drahthaar. While it evolved from common ancestry lines, the two breeds are now completely distinctive (since 1902). They have different breeding standards. Drahthaars are also required to pass performance testing.
German Wirehaired Pointer Character:
The German Wirehaired Pointer is a devoted family dog and is a hard working dog. Strangers will be ignored but friends and family will be greeted warmly and with affection. However, such devotion to their family makes them often jealous of other family pets, but they get along with other animals and dogs normally. Dominance is a problem they have which often causes them not to listen to their owners and can lead to dog fights. Training would be easy for this intelligent dog even with their occasional stubbornness.
German Wirehaired Pointer History:
The German Wirehaired Pointer does not have a long lineage. In fact, it originated in Germany about 100 years ago. The breed was created to be a more efficient hunting companion. To create it, a German Pointer was crossed with a variety of dogs including Bloodhounds and Wirehaired Griffons.
