Wirehaired Pointing Griffon
Tremendous Willingness To Please


Because of extra hair on their faces, and their wiry
coats, these dogs were called Griffons, which in ancient
mythology were fierce creatures, half lion, and half eagle.
The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is Dutch in origin, but is
regarded mainly as French as most of the development took
place in France.  The Griffon was bred to be keen of nose, a
good swimmer, a pointer, and retriever who could work
rough terrain with his wiry double coat as protection.
It's an excellent choice for a hunting dog.

A Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a medium size dog,
very intelligent and easily trained.  They make excellent
family pets and get along very well with children and other
animals such as dogs and cats, if properly socialized when
puppies.  They are friendly, affectionate, vigilant and brave,
and are naturally good watchdogs, easily recognizing and
resolving a threatening situation.  Griffons are highly
active and need lots of exercise.  They shed a little and
should be groomed a couple of times a week.
