German Shorthaired Pointer dogs can be left outside in the cold for short periods of time, but you have to remember that they have a short fine coat so they can get cold easily. I hope that helped :)

GSPs are family-oriented dogs. An actual family is NOT required, however realize that you have become that dog's family, and the dog will want to be where you are. Also, be aware that they have a short coat and are not protected from the cold.

i live in Alaska and my GSP did wonderful up here. He actually loved to roll in the snow and hop around like a bunny. I did have some coats to keep his core warm but he hated to wear them. All in all, we never had a problem with cold weather
