The German Wirehaired Pointer shares many characteristics with its relative, the Shorthaired Pointer, although it is slightly larger in build. The Pointer gets its name from its wire-like coat, which comes in liver, roan, and liver and white. And unlike the Shorthaired Pointer, the Wirehaired Pointer has a bushy beard and eyebrows. These features help to protect it when it is tracking game through the underbrush.
