I wouldn't leave your german shorthaired pointer out for long periods of time they have a short coat and can get cold easily.

It is of course going to depend on how cold it is. However as long as the German Shorthaired Pointer has a good insulated or nicely designed dog house with proper bedding he can remain outside for hours at a time. You can help the situation by adding some heat to the dog house with a 100 Watt lightbulb or a heating pad. If you have to keep your dog in a kennel for long periods while you work then you should have heated sleeping quarters.

It depends on the dog. I have read that German Shorthaired Pointers can get cold easily, but in the winter,mine loves to go out and roll in the snow. So you just need to figure out how much cold your German Shorthaired Pointer can tolorate.
