In appearance, the Kurzhaar is noble, well balanced, and built for speed, power, and endurance. In temperament, the Kurzhaar is outgoing, friendly, and an ideal family companion.

The Deutsch Kurzhaar is a versatile hunting dog, bred by hunters, for hunters. As such, it is capable of pointing and retrieving game birds, retrieving waterfowl and furred game, and tracking wounded game. It must show cooperation in working with its handler, and at the same time, must show enough independence to execute long and difficult tracking and retrieving, without relying on the handler.

Through literary sources we know that the ancestors of the Deutsch-Kurzhaar can not exclusively be found among the Old German lead dogs, bloodhounds, scent hounds, hunting dogs and further native breeds. These dogs were specialized in attacking and bringing game to bay The history of the Deutsch-Kurzhaar begins with the dogs that were used to point birds in order net them – especially in the Mediterranean countries and by falconry hunting. The pointing dog came to the German courts via France, Spain and Flanders. These dog’s most important attribute was their pointing capability. After the double-barrelled shotgun was invented in 1750 there was an even greater need for a pointing dog. As of then, birds were shot in flight.
