The German Wirehaired Pointer was developed in Germany in the late 19th century as a versatile hunting dog.

The wirehaired German pointer is an ideal dog for rough shooting, and it can be used for wildfowling and beating or picking up at shoots.

With retrieving, tracking, hunting, pointing, and flushing instincts, the GWP can work closely with a hunter on foot over varied terrain in pursuit of fur, feather, and wildfowl.

The breed is also used to track and recover wounded game, such as fox, deer, and wild boar.
