German pointer is a excellent breed, their ancestor comes from Spain. Known as Spanish pointer. These were a far heavier-cast dog than the Pointer we know today. These dogs appeared in Britain at the end of the War of Spanish Succession (1713), with British Army Officers bringing them back after the signing of the Peace of Utrect. Italian Pointers, which resembled the French Braque were introduced into England and crossed with the Spanish Pointer, producing the Pointer as we know it today. That is german pointer.

There are 3 kinds of german pointer, that are shorthaired, longhaired, or wiredhaired. But the most favorites by people is shorthaired german pointer. Why? Because they are friendly with people around. There are many colors from the german pointer: Liver with gray and white flecking. Solid liver is less common. Eyes are dark. Nose is brown. Tail is docked. The average life span of the German Pointer is 12 to 15 years. Health problems associated with the breed include Addison’s disease, bloat, cancer, entropion, epilepsy, hip dysplasia, and von Willebrand disease. To avoid this disease, you need to bath your german pointer at least once a week, and clean their crates from bacteria.

Please note that these dogs need LOTS of exercise. German pointer need to run in a fenced yard off leash every day just for starters. German pointer needs some training and they need to be with their people. You can’t turn a german pointer out in the yard and expect them to entertain themselves for a while, german pointer will be sitting at the door and begging to come in unless you’ve had critters in your yard that they can sniff which could occupy them for a few minutes. Beside that, having german pointer need much amount of cost, from the treatment itself, their tools, crate, accessorize, and food.
