German Shorthaired Pointer

The German Shorthaired Pointer (also known as the ‘GSP‘, ‘Deutsch Kurzhaar’, or ‘DK’) is a German breed resulting from careful crosses in the 17th century of the Spanish Pointer, Foxhound, Italian Pointer, and Hannover Hound. Generally bred for function over form, the German Shorthaired Pointer was later crossed with the Pointer to introduce style, speed, and ‘nose up’ scenting capabilities. The end result was an adaptable hunting dog with trailing, pointing, and retrieving capabilities which could kill wounded game when necessary. Two early 19th century German Shorthaired Pointers named Nero and Treff, successful racers who bred many descendants, are sometimes credited as the parents of the modern breed. The German Shorthaired Pointer was first imported to America in the 1920’s and recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1930. Today, German Shorthaired Pointers are a popular hunting breed and moderately popular show dogs and pets. German Shorthaired Pointers are featured prominently in the books ‘Colter: The True Story of the Best Dog I Ever Had’ by Rick Bass, ‘Run, Rainey, Run’ by Mel Wallis, and Robert B. Parker’s ‘Spenser’ detective novels.

The German Shorthaired Pointer's coat is short and flat with a dense undercoat protected by stiff guard hairs making the coat water resistant and allowing the dog to stay warm in cold weather. The color can be a dark brown, correctly referred to in English as "liver" (incorrectly as "chocolate" or "chestnut"), black (although any area of black is cause for disqualification in American Kennel Club sanctioned shows), or either liver and white or black and white. Commonly the head is a solid or nearly solid color and the body is speckled or "ticked" with liver and white, sometimes with large patches of solid color called "saddles".
Roan coats are also common, with or without patching. Solid liver and solid black coats also occur, often with a small blaze of ticking or white on the chest. While the German standard permits a slight sandy coloring ("Gelber Brand") at the extremities, this coloring is rare, and a dog displaying any yellow coloring is disqualified in AKC and CKC shows. The colouring of the GSP provides camouflage in the winter seasons. When standing next to dead trees and in broken snow, the white and dark brown coat makes the dog difficult to see.
