Wirehaired Pointing Griffon   Griffon Korthals


This is a rugged(ly handsome!) breed. Their sturdy build and dense double coat protect them from almost anything nature throws at them in the field. They excel as both pointers and retrievers on land or in the water. This combination of durability and derring-do make them any hunter’s best friend. They are highly trainable and sweet-natured, a perfect family pet for a household willing to keep them entertained and exercised. But don’t lock them outside when you’re done for the day, they want to be with their family! Their endearing wiry coat does require regular stripping and grooming to keep up their good looks and prevent uncomfortable tangles.
