Always ready to play, the German Shorthaired Pointer is an intelligent, energetic, fun, loyal, and dedicated breed. They crave companionship, making them less than ideal if they need to be left alone for long periods of time. Since they are hunters by design, they are vocal dogs and are wary of strangers. They can get along with other pets, but only if raised around them.
The German Shorthaired Pointer can come in either solid liver or brown, or in liver or brown with patches of white. There can be combinations of these colors, like liver and white ticked, liver patches on white, or liver roan (same combinations with brown). The head is almost always a solid liver or brown.
