The German Shorthaired Pointer is descended from the old Spanish Pointer. The Spanish pointer arrived in Germany in the 1600s. Very likely the breed also includes genetic contributions from other local German breeds such as other hunting dogs and scent hounds. The German Shorthaired Pointer breed was originally developed as a gun dog for both filed and water retrieval.
