Are there some GSP's that still retain the natural ability and drive that they were breed for,
Well all 6 of mine do
they will flat out hunt anything, varmints last like a minute then a fast death by shorthair.
German breeders are not using "lines" now as all the dogs there are related
now they pick the best performing dog and go with it. German hunting isnt the same either, be glad you live here in Germany it is a long proccess just to be able to carry and use a gun. No public land, farmers will complain to the gun club, a permit is gotten and the jagers do the hunt. Mostly large hares and pigs.
Please do not fall into the my DD is better than yer wirehair, many do this.
Enjoy the pup.
