The German short-haired pointer (GSP) is a versatile all-purpose dog breed that is proficient with numerous types of games and sports such as retrieving, trailing, and hunting. It has a streamlined body and long, strong legs that give it the ability to move and turn quickly. Its muzzle is long and broad, allowing it to retrieve even heavy game. Its high-set ears are hanging loose on the opposite sides of the head. The medium-sized, almond-shaped eyes are dark brown in colour. The short, tough coat has a dense undercoat that keeps it warm in cold weather. Coat colour can be dark brown, black, black and white, or liver and white.
While the origin of the German short-haired pointer is not very clear, this breed is believed to be a descendant of different types of German scent hounds, hunting, and trailing dogs such as the German bird dog, foxhound, and the old Spanish pointer. It is also likely that various German tracking dogs as well as the Arkwright pointer and the English pointer contributed to the development of this breed. This dog was officially recognised by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in the year 1930.
