Wirehaired Pointing Griffons
Originally developed in the Netherlands in the mid-1800‘s and recognized by the AKC in 1887, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a medium-sized gun dog, bred to cover all terrain encountered by the walking hunter. A “versatile” hunting dog, Griffs excel equally as pointers in the field and as retrievers in the water. Their coarse double coat protects them in rough cover and gives them an unkempt appearance. It can be a variety of colors, most commonly steel gray with chestnut or brown markings.
Very trainable, devoted to family, and a friendly temperament endear him to all. Griffs thrive on human companionship. This sporting dog needs plenty of exercise to keep it physically and mentally fit.
Griffs excel at hunting upland game as well as other activities including agility, rally & obedience.
