No. She's a German breed.Spinone italiano?
I'll guess Wirehaired Pointing Griffon.
There is Griffon in the heritage of the breedI, too, will guess a Griffon of some flavor What a gorgeous dog!
VERY closely related to GWP, and what many people think to begin with. Actually has the same genetic heritage, just somewhat different standards of conformation and proof of hunting skill before breeding is allowed.Hm. Deutsch stichelhaar/German Roughhaired Pointer is an older breed, I think, so my second guess is German Wirehaired Pointer?
Oof, you're giving my FCI breed encyclopedia a workout!
...Verein Deutsch Drahthaar?
That is what I understand! I have no clue how my brother learned about the breed, but there are a few breeders and trainers here in the states now. My brother got a lot of joy out of training her and hunting with her and she LOVES to hunt! I hate that she doesn't have my brother to go out with any longer. I hope either my dad or one of my brother's hunting friends will either know, or be able to learn, the signals Zena was trained to know and take her hunting again soon!Awesome! I admit I had to do some googling to figure that out. It sounds like the VDD is where Wirehaired Pointers originated from, but the German parent club keeps stricter performance standard than most other groups breeding German Wirehaired Pointers, so they've diverged slightly. Is that about right? Very interesting, either way!
