The German Wirehaired Pointer is a medium to large-sized griffon type breed of dog oriented in Germany. Wirehaired Pointers are hunting dogs, who are at their happiest when out in the field, working alongside people. It is a responsive breed, although it tends to be stubborn. It retains a guarding instinct, so it is often aloof, even protective, toward strangers as well as strange dogs. They are protective of their property and family and make excellent watchdogs.
