The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a mediumsized gundog breed of relatively recent vintage. The breed was developed near the end of the 19th century, and ever since then, these dogs have awed people with their amazing ability to point and retrieve.
The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon was originally used for hunting and would flush, point, and retrieve waterfowl, game birds, and even hares. She's been described as the "supreme gundog" and is still actively used in this role. She also makes an excellent family companion and enjoys any kind of work. Many Griffons have been successful in agility, tracking, and obedience.
The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is also a happy and loving breed. She generally gets along well with everyone, and although she'll alert bark, she's too gentle to be a strong guard dog. She does well in homes with children, but she prefers older children who know how to treat a dog properly. She usually gets along with other pets and dogs but still needs to be socialized, since some Griffons can be nervous when they're introduced to new people, dogs, and situations.
