Introduction

General information

  • One of a number of German pointing dogs, which include both the German Shorthaired Pointer German Shorthaired Pointer and the German Wirehaired Pointer German Wire-haired Pointer , though it should be noted that these are three distinctly separate breeds (although they are broadly of the same weight and size (males 58-70 cm and 25-30 kg)). The main difference is in their coats, the Longhair reflecting characteristics of the English setters English Setter which were used when the breed was created. The German Longhaired Pointer is the largest of the three and, like the other two breeds, was customarily docked, but only by the last two joints at the tip.
