Neither shy nor aggressive, Pudelpointers are even-tempered, calm and controlled dogs with a well developed hunting instinct. They will never shy away from game or be startled by gunfire. Ideally, they are built like heavy Pointers, with a wiry coat covering the whole body.
Harmonious balance of length and width, proportionate to size and sex.
Straight topline, pronounced withers, short, straight, firm, very muscular back, strongly muscled loins, medium length croup that slopes slightly.
Solid brown, dead leaf or black.
Medium-sized, set high, close to the head, not fleshy, well covered with hair, slightly rounded tips.
Reaching the point of the hock, straight or slightly curved, forming a saber and carried a little above the topline.
Harsh, wiry, dense, close, medium length, with thick undercoat.
Although Poodles were only used in the establishment of the foundation breeding stock, their hunting skills are preserved in the present-day breed. By associating them with the Pointer’s exceptional aptitude on the plain – a fine nose even at long distances, the ability to quickly search an extensive area, firm pointing – it was possible to produce a versatile hunting dog.
As the name suggests, albeit with a German accent, this wirehaired breed is a cross between Poodles and Pointers. The result is an astonishing dog that can go after any type of game, on the plain, in woodland and in the water.
