You could say his breed is the parent breed to the German Wire haired pointer. In fact if I really wanted to it would take little effort to register him with the AKC as one. But there is a reason I went with the German registry.
The AKC version is nothing more than a pointer while what I bought will have the ability to not only point but to also be a strong retriever, fur tracker, blood tracker. As the Germans put is a truly versatile hunting companion.
