GERMAN WIREHAIRED POINTER
Standing as high as 26 inches at the shoulder, German Wirehaired Pointers are a smidge taller and heavier than their close relative, the German Shorthaired Pointer. GWPs are classically constructed pointers: beautifully balanced, well muscled, resilient, agile, and generally built to beat the bushes all day long without quitting. One breed hallmark is the harsh wire coat that protects against thorny underbrush and foul weather; another is the shaggy beard and eyebrows, typical of many German breeds, which complete an intelligent, worldly expression.
