German Wirehaired Pointers are purebred dogs who are part of the sporting group. They were initially bred to be versatile hunters. Today, they’re known for being affectionate, eager, and enthusiastic. If you want to learn more about German Wirehaired Pointer puppies, then keep reading. 

Where to get German Wirehaired Pointer Puppies

If you want a purebred German Wirehaired Pointer puppy, then you can go through a reputable breeder to get one. The American Kennel Club recognizes this dog as its own breed, so you’ll be able to find ethical breeders registered on the AKC Marketplace. Odin…

You can tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible, allowing them to live inside the breeder’s home like family
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date on all of their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person to get to know you and to allow you to meet the parents and the litter
  • Health screen and genetically test the dogs before breeding to ensure it’s safe (and then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption

In addition, a good breeder will be able to answer all of your questions about the process, the breed as a whole, and the breeder’s experience and reputation.

If you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid them. They might be a backyard breeder or puppy mill. They don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions, often leaving them in kennels most of the time. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies a good home. 

Alternatively, you can go through your local animal shelter or rescue organization. They might have German Wirehaired Pointer puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds available for adoption. You can get a new furry friend while saving a dog’s life. Boy.dog.mom…

The Cost

The average price of this purebred dog is about $600 to $950. However, some German Wirehaired Pointer puppies can go for up to $1,500. The price may vary depending on the puppy’s lineage, age, coat color, or gender.

In addition, other factors such as the time of year, the number of puppies in the litter, the breed’s popularity, or the breeder’s location could affect the cost. However, if you go through a shelter or rescue, the price will be lower.

German Wirehaired Pointers are large dogs, growing to be about 22 to 26 inches tall. Females can be between 22 and 24 inches tall. Also, they should weigh between 50 and 70 pounds. Fraugrau…

In addition, they have a wiry double coat that’s medium in length. They can come in a few different coat colors and markings, such as:

  • Liver
  • Liver & White
  • Black & White
  • Ticked
  • Spotted
  • Roan
  • Roan & Ticked

Temperament

German Wirehaired Pointers are loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re open to meeting new people. However, when it comes to young children and other dogs, they might be a bit reserved. This doggo needs early training and socialization to get used to children and other dogs and animals. Wilbur…

Luckily, this dog breed is easy to train. They want to please their owners and, if started early enough, they’ll catch on quickly.

They are adaptable as well, so they can live in an apartment. However, this doggo will much prefer a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. They have high energy levels and will need ample exercise and playtime every day. 

German Wirehaired Pointer Puppies – Veterinary Needs

With proper care, your German Wirehaired Pointer has an average lifespan of about 14 to 16 years. However, they are known to get certain health issues, so you’ll want to be wary of the following:

  • Heart Disease
  • Seizures
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Gastric Torsion (Bloat)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Entropion

This is why you’ll want to bring your doggo to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. As a puppy, you can bring them multiple times to stay up to date with their shots and boosters. Also, you’ll be able to track their growth and development. Hetti…

Diet

You’ll be able to provide your pup with any dog food that your vet approves. Also, make sure it’s appropriate for your dog’s breed size, age, weight, and metabolism.

However, you’ll be able to feed them high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

The wirehaired coat on this dog breed requires minimal grooming. However, German Wirehaired Pointers do shed a good amount. So, you’ll want to keep up with brushing their coat weekly to keep it clean and keep the loose hairs under control.

In addition, keep up with cleaning their ears, trimming their nails, and brushing their teeth regularly.
