Sigismund Freiherr von Zedlitz und Neukirch was convinced that a cross between a Pointer and a Poodle was the only road to an ideal German pointing dog. In the first crossing, a black Poodle bitch named ‘Molly’ was bred to a Pointer named ‘Tell,’ descended from the kennels of the Prince of Wales and owned by Friedrich III, the future Emperor of Germany and King of Prussia. The first litter was born in 1881.
The good-natured Pudelpointer is calm and self-controlled, with an even temperament and strong hunting instinct. They love the water, are readily trained and fearless.
A keen hunting dog, the Pudelpointer needs plenty of outdoor exercise and likes to work.
Males stand 24-27 in (60-68 cm); females are 22-25 in (55-63 cm).
The medium-long coat is dense and hard, rather tight to the body, with a fine woolly undercoat. Pudelpointers should have pronounced eyebrows and whiskered muzzles.
Dark liver, “autumn leaves” or black.
A weekly brushing will remove loose hair. A wiry coat needs regular stripping to keep it tidy.
