Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

The Canine Chronicles Directory

Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a rough-coated, strong and graceful, medium-sized hunting dog. The straight, wiry outercoat is lined with a fine thick downy undercoat. The texture of the coat may vary on the wiry vs. soft hair as well as the type of dog food consumed. The coat is usually a steel gray or silver with chestnut or roan markings. They can also come in a solid chestnut or roan color. The head is large and the muzzle square-shaped. The length of the stop to the occiput should be the same as the skull. The large elliptical eyes are usually yellow or brown. The medium-sized ears lie flat against the head. The teeth should meet in a scissor-like bite. The broad chest expands to the elbows and the topline slopes downward from the withers to the tail. The tail is docked between ½ or 2/3 of its length. The front legs should be straight and the dewclaws should be removed. The toes are webbed and the feet rounded.

Temperament Wirehaired Pointing Griffons are energetic, friendly, intelligent, devoted, and loving. They love to spend time with their families. They are gentle and affectionate towards children. Wirehaired Pointing Griffon's are easy to train and are always eager to learn. They are an excellently skilled field dog, superior gundog and an incredible tracker, they also work well in marshland and upland environments. This breed has a keen sense of smell and has a great passion for hunting, especially for fowl and hare. Due to this they are great pointers, flushers and water retrievers. Their rough coat protects them from the dense brush and bad weather. The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon can become nervous and high strung around strangers or in unknown situations. Socializing them when young will reduce these tendencies. They are also excellent watchdogs.

Grooming This breed requires regular stripping and trimming if they are to be shown. Trim twice a year if they are pets. Brush or comb once a week. Clean ears and pluck hair from the ear canal to prevent ear infections. They shed little or no hair.
Origin The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon was developed in the 1800s by a Dutch breeder named Edward K. Korthals. Korthals started his breeding program with a female Griffon of Barbet and crossed her with various setters and pointers, the Munsterlander and the Braque Francais to develop the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. The results were versatile, enthusiastic hunting dogs with a fine nose and good on small game, especially hare and quail. Korthals served as an agent to the Duke of Penthievre in France and interest soon formed a following for this new breed. France was the primary source for crossbreeding, which is why the country of origin is listed as France. In Europe this breed is still known as the Korthals Griffon. In 1916, the Griffon Club of America was founded and 16 Griffons were shown at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York. In the 1980s several breeders elected to import Cesky Fousek and breed them with the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. A disagreement broke out over this practice resulting in a division among breeders. The American Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Association was developed to sustain the purity of the breed and is the AKC parent club for the breed. Although this breed is rare in the United States, they are recognized by the American Kennel Club and the United Kennel Club.
