German Wire-Haired Pointer

From Dog

The German Wirehaired Pointer breed is a large dog with many cute and unique features.

A square head is the beginning of this wonderful breed and leads to their long muzzle which ends with a large reddish-brown colored nose. From their muzzle, wiry hair feathers out like a short beard. Sitting on top of their small head are two long, floppy ears. A long neck leads to their semi-broad shoulders. Long skinny legs lead from their thin body to rabbit-like feet. The fur covering their body is, as the name suggests, wiry and comes in silver or white with red or brown markings.

An average life expectancy for this breed is between 12 and 14 years.
