The German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP) was bred at the turn of the nineteenth century in Germany with the end goal of hunting. It is believed that there were many dogs that went into making this remarkable breed. Some of which incorporate some German breeds, for example, the schweisshund, a German dog known for following, the Foxhound, diverse French dogs, arranged Scandinavian breeds, the German Bird Dog, and the Italian Pointer.
Initially, the breed was developed as an all-purpose gundog due to its exceptional skills in game finding, pointing and retrieving. The German shorthaired pointer is the perfect companion for any hunter as the dog is alert, intelligent and has an amazing sense of smell that is ideal for hunting game
