Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Dog Facts

Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Information

This strong breed can cope with any terrain. It should be slightly longer than tall, of medium substance. It functions as both a retriever and pointer, and its size and conformation reflects a compromise between the requirements of these jobs. Its gait is efficient and tireless, with low, catlike strides. The coat is of medium length, straight and wiry, with a fine, downy, thick undercoat. The combination provides protection in the swampy country in which it was developed, as well as insulation from cold and water. The abundant facial furnishings contribute to its friendly expression.

The wirehaired pointing griffon is a skilled field dog, pointing and retrieving with a deliberate style, generally staying within the hunter's gun range. It combines independent action with the ability to be directed by the hunter. It is an equally adept family pet, absolutely devoted, willing to please, amiable and often comical. It is generally friendly toward strangers, other dogs and pets.
