Puppies & Rescue

Looking for a GWP to join your family ?

Is a GWP the right dog for you ?

Taking on ownership of a dog is a big responsibility, you will have to feed and care for them hopefully for 12-15 years. German Wirehaired Pointers are not the breed for everyone – there is a breed for everyone and it is essential that you look at what you are able to offer a dog and what you want/expect from a dog before deciding on the breed.

GWP Breeders

The best way to meet and understand the breed is to talk to experienced owners and breeders. They can help you understand the breed and if it is right for you.

This list is published as a form of advertising, the adverts are placed by individuals and are not necessarily ‘recommended’ by the GWPC.

The choice/decision and responsibility is entirely down to the purchaser.

Types of Breeder

There is a formal breeder accreditation scheme run by the Kennel Club, the KC Assured Breeder Scheme (ABS). Breeders in this scheme are listed first and indicated on their profiles.

All breeders on this site are GWPC members and agree to follow the GWPC voluntary Code of Conduct.

GWP Puppy List

The GWP is a specialist breed, across the whole UK there are only around 45-50 litters a year (about 400 puppies).

Below are currently available litters advertised for sale.

The advertisers have undertaken they have followed the GWPC health guidelines and general code of ethics.

If you wish to advertise a litter or as a breeder, please Email the Puppy List Co-ordinator

GWP Health

The GWP is generally a very healthy breed. Through the efforts of the GWP Club, we now have two health tests which are mandatory for all KC Assured Breeders to be able to register GWP puppies and advised for all other GWP breeders.

Hip Dysplasia
The GWP has a good record generally in terms of hip dysplasia, however to ensure this continues it is advised that both parents should be hip scored under the BVA/KC scheme and have values much less than the breed average and ideally, less than the Breed Median Score of 9.0. Hip scoring of parents is mandatory for KC Assured Breeders of GWP's and advised for all other GWP breeders.

DNA Test - VWD
Von Willebrands disease is deficiency in a specific blood clotting factor. Dogs with vWD are prone to prolonged bleeding when injured or after surgery etc. This is an inherited condition which can be avoided by breeding from unaffected dogs. Whilst relatively rare, this test is mandatory for KC Assured Breeders of GWP's and advised for all other GWP breeders.

Many GWP breeders conduct a number of other tests voluntarily, such as Elbow Dysplasia, Shoulder Dysplasia, Eye testing and Heart testing.

Details of all the various KC screening schemes, both veterinary and DNA, in the UK can be found at Kennel Club - Dog Health

If you would like to make the GWPC aware of any health concerns or for further information, please Email the GWP Health Co-ordinator.

GWPC Rescue

Have you considered a rescue GWP ? On occasion GWP's are in need of rehoming, some through no fault of their own.

If you have experience of the breed or dogs in general and can consider giving a home to an older dog, please consider helping out a rescue GWP.

If you wish to offer a rescue dog a home or simply get involved to help, please:
