Information About the German Shorthaired Pointer:


The German Shorthaired Pointer is a clean-cut, lean, well-balanced, hunting dog with an elegantly chiseled head. The muzzle is long, but never pointed. The length of the muzzle should be the same as the length of the skull. Unlike the English Pointer, the occipital bone is not very conspicuous nor is there a pronounced stop. The almond-shaped eyes and nose are brown. The eyes have an intelligent, good-humored expression. A large nose is preferred. The larger the better. The broad ears are set high and lie close to the head. The teeth should form a scissors bite. The short, dense, sleek coat should be solid liver or liver & white, patched, ticked or roan. The only permitted colors are liver and white. The skin should be tight. The tail is customarily docked by 60% (the dog should be able to sit on his tail), and the dewclaws removed. The feet are webbed. The German Shorthaired Pointer is a little smaller than the standard Pointer.


The German Shorthaired Pointer is very energetic, smart and willing to please. Cheerful and friendly, he likes children. Loyal and protective, he loves all family members equally, especially if they are carrying the leash, car key, gun or Frisbee. They are very people-oriented, and not happy if isolated from the family. If exercised sufficiently once or twice a day, the German Shorthaired Pointer makes a very agreeable family companion. If left to his own devices for long periods without exercise or companionship, he can become destructive and nervous. Males tend to be more outgoing and are more aggressive hunters than females. Females tend to be less dominant. Energy levels vary somewhat, as litters bred for high performance field competition may require more activity than the average Shorthair. If raised with other dogs and cats from puppyhood, the German Shorthaired Pointer does quite well; however, he is a hunting dog by nature. This breed likes to bark and they are reserved with strangers.

Height, Weight

Height: Dogs 23-25 inches (59-64 cm.) Bitches 21-23 inches (53-58 cm.)
Weight: Dogs 55-70 pounds (25-32 kg.) Bitches 45-60 pounds (20-27 kg.)

Living Conditions

This breed is not recommended for apartment life and does best with a large yard and an athletic family. At least a 6-foot high fence is necessary. Bored Shorthairs can become escape artists. Does well in most climates.


Exercise is of paramount importance for these tireless energetic animals. They are more than a match for even the most active family and they should not be taken on as family pets unless they can be guaranteed plenty of vigorous exercise.  If under-exercised, this breed can become restless and destructive.

Life Expectancy

About 12-15 years.


The smooth coat of the Pointer is very easy to groom. Just brush regularly with a firm bristle brush and bathe only when necessary. A rub with a piece of toweling or chamois will leave the coat gleaming. Check the feet also, especially after the dog has been exercising or working. Dry the dog thoroughly after hunting to prevent chilling. Examine the ears regularly. This breed is an average shedder.


Nineteenth-century German hunters required a dog with a good nose that would  point within a reasonable distance for a man hunting on foot. The dog needed to retrieve both fur and feather, from water or land, and also be a fine tracker. The German breeding incorporated the Old Spanish Pointer, Hounds of St. Hubert, the Foxhound, other hounds, and eventually the English Pointer, which made it faster and more energetic. Today's German Shorthaired Pointer is the successful result of the German hunters efforts. The German Shorthair is a versatile hunter and an all-purpose gun dog capable of high performance in both field and water. He is a fine natural retriever, an excellent companion for a hunter on foot, and requires little training. The German Shorthaired Pointer is an ideal dog for the weekend hunter who also wishes to own a bright, agreeable family companion and watchdog. Due to the breed's natural ability, German Shorthairs are campaigned successfully in the show ring, obedience and tracking trials, field trials, and hunting tests.

Litter Information:

Final Update (12/26/06):  Litter was sold in March of 2006, there will be no more litters available as Jill passed away after being hit by a car on December 22, 2006.   She lived 3 1/2 very happy years and will be missed.  



Update (1/28/06):  On the morning of January 25, Jill whelped a litter of 9.  This includes 5 females and 4 males, of which 6 are liver colored (with white patches on chest) and 3 are white and liver patched and ticked.  So far, mother and pups are doing well, tails were docked and dew claws removed today.  




Update (2/4/06): Posting individual pictures of each pup (click thumbnail to open full size picture in a new window).  Pups are now 10 days old and growing fast, named pups for the order in which they were born.  Jill had a rough time the first 4 days adjusting to being a first time mother, but after a visit to the vet she is doing great and putting weight back on.  I also registered the litter with AKC today.

Update (2/11/06):  Pups are now 17 days old and starting to walk, all eyes and ears are now open.  These pictures are the first time the pups have been outside of the garage.  It was a beautiful day so I thought they might like the grass.  White puppies (Charlie, Echo, Golf) are developing more ticking.  Pups will develop motor skills and should be walking around much better by the end of the week.
