Deutsch Drahthaar

The Deutsch-Drahthaar was created in Germany in the late 19th century as a premier versatile hunter.  The coat is wiry, tightly fit and has a thick underwool.

 

North American Drahthaar’s breeding is tightly held by a group of breeders. (the Verein Deutsch-Drahthaar (VDD) 1902). The American Wirehair pointer has been bred without the close monitoring of the breed’s founders. Drahthaar owners consider the German Wirehair to be a distinctly different breed from the Drahthaar.

 

Deutsch-Drahthaars (Drahts) are passionate, persistent, hard-working dogs and noted for endurance. Drahts maintain a strong desire to please their owner and have eager willingness/obedience.

 

Hunters seeking a true premier hunting breed will love the Draht.

 

The height varies from around 61 to 68 cm for males, and 57 to 64 cm for females.
