German Wire-haired Pointers have long, rough coats, shaggy eye-brows and beards. This coat helped to protect the dog from the elements in the German snowy winters. Regular brushing helps to keep the coat in good condition. His large build makes him an intimidating guard dog. The Wire-haired Pointer is used in Europe today to hunt all types of game. He likes to be out in the country running free.
