Despite being the oldest of the German pointers, German Rough-Haired Pointers are rare, much rarer than the other wire-haired breeds from Germany: German Wirehaired Pointers and Pudelpointers.
About the German Rough-Haired Pointer
Hair is unsurprisingly a distinctive breed characteristic of German Rough-Haired Pointers, 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, German Rough-Haired Pointers are well-balanced, calm animals. Hardy and brave, they are always in control and never display shyness.
