So you’re looking to adopt an Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Griffs are medium-sized, all-purpose gundogs standing no higher than 24 inches at the shoulder. They’re known for an extremely harsh and bristly coat that gives them a natural, unkempt appearance. The preferred color is steel gray with brown markings. A lavish mustache and eyebrows frame large, rounded eyes that gleam with a keen intelligence. Griffs are the very picture of an honest, hardworking sporting dog, whose handsome looks are the result of a noble and unaffected ruggedness rather than fussy grooming. The hardworking Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, renowned as the “supreme gundog,” is known for the harsh, low-shedding coat the breed is named for. Outgoing, eager, and quick-witted, Griffs are incomparable in the field and loving at home.”
An Wirehaired Pointing Griffon typically ranges from 50.8cm to 60.96cm in height, and weighs from 15.875732950000002kg to 31.751465900000003kg.
