The German Shorthaired Pointer is a breed of dog developed in the 1800s in Germany for hunting. This gun dog was developed by crossing an older German Pointer breed with the English Pointer to create a lean, athletic, and responsive breed.

The coat is short, thick, and harsh. The colour can be liver, black, or either colour with white. Commonly the head is a solid or nearly solid colour and the body is speckled, with saddles or large patches of solid colour.

This variety of German Pointer can be shy, and seizures have been a problem in some lines. However, it makes a good companion and has a longer life expectancy than many breeds of this size.
