the big difference in the dogs is the breeding
German testing system is different than AKC. Having wife that is German, we can go pick what we want. I have had German bred shorthairs, were not that much different than American bred as far as training and natural instincts go. Big split here in the US where it used to be everyone got along. Does the dog know? lol mine just hunt, everything. Puppies are great, get to teach em right. Happy hunting to ya.
