Origin

The rarest of the German Pointers, the German Long-haired is closely related to three other long-coated German sporting breeds: the Large Münsterländer, the Small Münsterländer and the Wachtelhund, the last being similar to the English Spaniel. Only the German Long- haired Pointer is recognized by The Canadian Kennel Club. In outline, the breed resembles a rather heavily constructed setter. Some believe the breed first appeared on the scene around 1860 but other authorities contend the breed traces back to medieval times. In Germany, the breed is still highly regarded as a versatile gun dog and family companion; however, the breed remains a rarity on this continent.

Intelligent, versatile and good-natured, the German Long-haired Pointer is at home on the farm or in the field.

Bred as a sporting dog, the German Long-haired Pointer is active and possesses a fair amount of stamina and drive. He’s well suited to country living and needs a fair amount of outdoor exercise.
