German Rough-haired Pointer

The German Wirehaired Pointer is a medium to large-sized griffon type breed of dog developed in the 19th century in Germany for hunting. It became a leading gun dog in Germany in the later part of the 20th century. It is the result of the careful mixing and crossing of the griffon, German Shorthaired Pointer, Deutscher Stichelhaar, and the hunting Pudelpointer in the late 19th century.
