Overview
The German Shorthaired Pointer is an all purpose gun dog capable of excellent abilities in both field and water. They are well balanced with an elegant head and are lean in body. This breed originated in 19th century Germany by hunters who required a dog that was serviceable for men hunting on foot.
Character
The German Shorthaired Pointer is an active breed that is responsive, affectionate, and gentle. They are friendly and willing to please. They do not have a flighty or nervous disposition, but may become easily distracted.

Does your German Shorthaired Pointer bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
This breed is high energy, willing to please their master, and very smart. They are happy and friendly and get along well with children. They will also get along well with other dogs and cats provided that they are introduced to them and raised with them from puppy-hood. This breed does enjoy barking. They are loyal and protective, and prefer to be indoors with their family.
Care
The German Shorthaired Pointer is extremely easy to groom. They must be brushed regularly with a stiff bristle brush. It is important to check this breed's feet after exercising and working. They must be dried thoroughly after strenuous activity to keep them from becoming chilled. This breed is an average shedder. They are generally healthy, but can be prone to such problems as ear infections, hip dysplasia, and skin cancer.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The German Shorthaired Pointer's coat is of a harsh texture. It is short, flat and thick and is of a dense nature, which makes it water resistant. The coat may be solid liver in color or a combination of liver and white spotted and liver roan.
Training
The German Shorthaired Pointer is easily trained, but can be stubborn. They require patient, firm, and consistent guidance. They excel in obedience, agility, tracking, hunting, and flyball. This breed has a natural instinct to guard and must have obedience training. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new German Shorthaired Pointer puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The German Shorthaired Pointer are tireless and full of energy. Vigorous exercise is extremely important. If they are not given an appropriate amount of exercise and stimulation they become restless and destructive. They are a good family pet for the active family. This breed needs a lot of space and room to run. They must have a fenced yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

A German Shorthaired Pointer is fully grown into an adult dog at a year and a half old. However, it can take anywhere from a year and a half to two years of age before the G.S.P is fully grown mind-wise. So your G.S.P is a puppy until about 1 year old, then between 1 - 1.5 years, your dog is a teenager. Then between 1.5 - 2 years of age, your dog is now an adult.

I have a 9-week old GSP who is AKC registered that I got from a local breeder. I have never owned this breed and I have been noticing her front legs seem to be double jointed or something she can bend them pretty far out and they will shake sometimes? She walks, runs and plays just fine. Is this common?

Yes, this is quite common in large and giant breed dogs. Your puppy is just growing and will be just fine. Keep the exercise to an easy level so not to damage the joints and the pup will be just fine. If you become worry-some you can always bring your pup to the vet and have him/her check out the pup.

I have a 1 year and 4-month-old female GSP puppy. However, the last few days something is wrong, she cries when left outside alone. She never did that before and is very restless when brought inside to sleep at night. Is this something to be concerned about?

If your dog is not fixed then she may be going into her first heat and that can be very hard on young female dogs. Their hormones are going crazy and they want to be outside more often than not. If she is fixed, then another dog or animal in your area may be in heat in your area and the scent could be bothering her. I would take her to a vet for a check up then contact a local behaviorist to diagnose what is wrong.

Do any German Shorthaired Pointer's come with a grey coat with black spots? I saw a dog that looked like these except it was grey.

No, they do not. The German Shorthaired Pointer does not have spots on its body. What you most likely saw was a Dalmatian cross or some other type of cross -- possible for it to be a German Shorthaired pointer/English Setter cross.

Yes, they can come in grey with black spots but those are very rare and from Germany.

Destructive German Shorthaired Pointer: I have an 8-month-old female GSP who within the last week has become very destructive both inside and out chewing and ripping up things that she never bothered before. Any suggestions oh how to fix this?

Exercise, exercise and more exercise. Throwing in a little bit of mental stimulation as well. The German Shorthaired Pointer needs an average of 2 hours of hard running exercise a day. An hour in the morning and an hour at night. Raw meaty bones and antlers are the best for your dog to chew on through-out the day so she doesn't get bored and chew on your things. As well as enrolling her with Positive Reinforcement Training classes to help teach her boundaries throughout the house inside and out.
