The German Longhaired Pointer should be muscular, elegant, and athletic. It should not be bulky or cumbersome, and it should be able to move with great speed and freedom. It has moderate bone, but has substance, and must never look frail or weak. Like all German pointers, they have webbed feet. Watch out for aggression in puppy years.

GLPs are a kind, gentle, friendly, and intelligent breed. They are very affectionate, and may experience separation anxiety. They only make good pets when properly exercised, as they need a "job" to do, and do not adapt well to a sedentary life. The GLP is an excellent family pet, as it enjoys playing with children. It is very sociable with dogs.


The German Long Haired Pointer is descended from a combination of bird and water dogs as well as scenthounds, making it a very versatile breed. Pure breeding has been carried out since 1879. The German Long Haired Pointer was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 2006.
