About the Deutsch Stichelhaar

Hair is unsurprisingly a distinctive breed characteristic of Deutsch Stichelhaars, which sport a moderate beard on the face, and eyebrows that are bushy and strong, giving these powerful dogs a rather fierce appearance.

All told, though, Deutsch Stichelhaars are well balanced, calm animals. Hardy and brave, they are always in control, never displaying shyness.
