Slovakian Wirehaired Pointer

Slovakian Wirehaired Pointers have not been bred for such a long time and are almost exclusively found in their home country. Breeders are looking for a solidly built dog without being heavy.

About the Slovakian Wirehaired Pointer

Slovakian Wirehaired Pointers are particularly hardy, solid and versatile dogs that can work on the plains, in woodlands and in water, especially after the gunshot, searching for and retrieving injured game.

These obedient dogs are easy to train. Slovakian Wirehaired Pointers are efficient working dogs of moderate strength, yet nobly built. The base coat color of wiry hair is "gray."
