German Shorthaired Pointer

German Shorthaired Pointer


Height: 21-25 inches

Weight: 45-70 lbs.

Life Span: 12-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Sporting Dogs

Overview
German shorthaired pointers love their families and other dogs and will accept cats if raised with them from an early age.

They require early, gentle, firm obedience training. They usually bark when a person comes onto their property.

They generally warm up to strangers easily, but some can be excessively protective. This hunting dog is a superb tracker, pointer, and retriever.

Appearance
The German shorthaired pointer's coat is short, thick, tough, and harsh to the touch. The color is liver and white or solid liver. The eyes are large and deep brown.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The German shorthaired pointer needs only a quick brushing with a rubber brush once a week.

This highly energetic dog needs vigorous activity to prevent such behavioral problems as house destruction or constant barking when left alone.

Origins
The German shorthaired pointer was developed in Germany in the 19th century; its ancestors were probably a Spanish pointer and some English or German scent hounds.

Special Alerts
This breed is unsuitable for city or apartment living.

Breed-related health concerns: hip dysplasia, von Willebrand's disease (a common disorder that causes excessive bleeding during or after surgery), lymphedema (an obstruction in the lymphatic system that prevents draining of fluids, which can lead to swelling), hypothyroidism, subaortic stenosis, entropion.
