About the Large Munsterlander

Above all, they are gentle, easy learners with proven abilities as a gun dog, especially after the shot. They are lively, but not nervous.

The Large Munsterlander Club was established in 1919, after black and white dogs were excluded from the German Longhaired Pointer Club because they were felt to have English blood.
