Despite being the oldest of the German pointers, Deutsch Stichelhaars are rare, much rarer than the other wire-haired breeds from Germany: German Wirehaired Pointers and Pudelpointers.
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.
