German Longhaired Pointer

Temperament

German Longhaired Pointers have a kind and gentle temperament. They are affectionate family dogs who long to be fully integrated into the family and hate being left alone. As a breed they have fantastic stamina and will only make good house pets if they get a large amount of daily exercise. They are friendly to all they meet and good with children but like all dogs they will do best with early socialisation.

Health Problems

Health problems that may affect German Longhaired Pointers include canine hip dysplasia (CHD), bloat, and ear infections.
