The German Shorthaired Pointer has an appearance of nobility, being agile, well-balanced and powerful looking. As the name suggests, he has a short coat that is thick and feels tough to the touch. The hair is softer, thinner and shorter on the ears and the head. His coat may be solid liver, liver and white spotted, liver and white ticked, or liver roan. The American Kennel Club disqualifies any dog with any area of black, red, orange, lemon or tan, or solid white.

The German Shorthaired Pointer is friendly, eager to please, intelligent, and has a stable temperament. He has an abundance of energy but can adapt well to family life in a suburban or country setting provided he gets lots of exercise on a daily basis. The breed is sturdy, alert, and has a great deal of endurance.

A versatile and good natured dog, the German Shorthaired Pointer is an active and agile dog, and is tolerant, obedient, and intelligent. The German Shorthaired Pointer is quick to learn, and this can make training far easier, although some may have a stubborn or dominant streak that make them best suited to owner with some experience of dog ownership. Others may be overly submissive, and in order to ensure a well balance temperament early socialization in important. These are dogs that have plenty of energy and love to play, which means that you need to ensure that they receive plenty of physical activity as well as mental stimulation, otherwise boredom can set in and this lead to destructive behavior.

Also known as the Deutsch Kurzhaar in his native Germany, the German Shorthaired Pointer was developed as an all-purpose dog in the late 1800s. The intent was to develop a versatile sporting breed that could work as a pointer, retriever, tracker and hunter of both large and small game, and to work well in all types of terrain including water. The German Shorthaired Pointer was first introduced to North America in the mid-1920s and first admitted to the American Kennel Club Stud Book in 1930. Today, the breed is both a popular sporting dog as well as a family companion.
If you are considering the adoption of a German Short Haired Pointer puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances.
