The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is known as the Korthals Griffon in many parts of the world. Named after it's Dutch founder Edward Korthals, it is still debated whether the country of origin for this breed should be considered France, Germany or Holland. Nevertheless, what is known is that these dogs are excellent, willing to please gundogs and retrievers. They are also excellent family companions that are perfect for those with children, other pets, and frequent visitors. Easy to train and groom, they make up for this by needing a large amount of exercise and time with you. WPG are noted for being a healthy breed with few health concerns.
