The German Shorthaired Pointer is a medium-size hunting dog primarily used on upland game in the United States for finding, pointing and retrieving birds.  They were developed in Germany to also trail furred game, and water retrieve.  A versatile breed for those without the means of maintaining a large kennel of specialized dogs.  Shortly after World War I, imported Ringneck pheasants, natural game birds and the sport of field trials were becoming very popular in the US.  The average hunter was looking for a dog with a good nose and style better fitting the foot hunter.  It took several more decades for the German Shorthaired Pointer to make its mark on American soil, but thanks to Standards, Breed Clubs and several important dog people, the GSP has prospered and is here to stay!
 
Many great references exist detailing the emergence of the German Shorthaired Pointer.  Several will be found on the "Links" page.
 
We really enjoy our Shorthairs!  They tend to be loving companions as well as strong and enduring in the field.  They are very loving and intelligent animals and deserve our admiration!
