Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Information

Wirehaired Pointing GriffonThe Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a brave breed. He jumps into fields full of briars and other sticky things without worry. Luckily, his strong double coat – shaggy and gray and brown in color – provides adequate protection. He also serves as a pointer in the field and retriever in the water. Talk about a versatile hunting dog!

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon’s history dates as far back at 500 B.C. Today he is a devoted family dog who thrives on human companionship. In fact, he’d rather be in the house with you than in the field. Don’t be fooled, though – the Griffon still needs lots of outdoor time and exercise. His personality is outgoing, eager and loyal, making him an excellent family pet.
