The German Shorthaired Pointer is a breed of dog developed in the 1800s in Germany for hunting. This gun dog was developed by crossing an older German Pointer breed with the English Pointer to create a lean, athletic, and responsive breed.

The coat is short, thick, and harsh. The color can be liver, black, or either color with white. Commonly the head is a solid or nearly solid color and the body is speckled, with saddles or large patches of solid color.

This variety of German Pointer can be shy, and seizures have been a problem in some lines. However, it makes a good companion and has a longer life expectancy than many breeds of this size.
