Dogs - German Wire Haired Pointer

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. 

Height dogs: 60 - 67 cms at shoulder, bitches 56 - 62 cms.

Colour: solid liver (brown), liver and white, or black and white. 

Class: gundog.

Our pets lift their eyes to their master adoringly. When they die, they adore another Master, and say, "I lift my eyes to you, whose throne is in Heaven."  Psalm 123 verse 1
