Introduction

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is one of the thirty-odd sporting dogs as classified by the American Kennel Club. A pointer, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a happy-go-lucky dog that is highly affectionate. This attractive canine is chiefly recognized for their "facial furnishings" - bushy eyebrows and what can be identified as a "beard." The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon needs room to run and play; the breed is a hunter at heart, bred to point and retrieve small game birds. Nevertheless, they can adapt to apartment living as long as the dog is provided daily activity. They are often called the supreme gundog, and the pup is a loyal, consistent companion.
