German Shorthaired Pointers

History of the German Shorthaired Pointer

Records state that the German Shorthaired Pointer stems from German Prince Albrecht zu Solms-Brauenfels’ effort to create the ultimate all-purpose hunting dog.¬†Solms-Brauensfels owned schwiesshunds (Bloodhounds) and Pointers imported from England, thus the basis for the German Shorthaired Pointer. In the 1900’s, German Shorthaired Pointers were imported into the USA.
