German Shorthaired Pointers are a versatile sporting dog breed.
They’re usually associated with hunting or retrieving of bird from land or water.
However, German Shorthaired Pointers, abbreviated to GSP, can make great companion dogs.
They’ll need lots of exercise to keep their minds active and ensure they get sufficient physical stimulation.
The American Kennel Club ranked the German Shorthaired Pointer as the ninth most popular breed in the USA.
