Wirehaired Pointing Griffon
DID YOU KNOW?
Aiming for an adaptable, all-terrain walking hunter's gun dog, Dutch sportsman Eduard Korthals developed this breed over 23 years, starting in 1873.
THE INNATE HUNTER
"I hunt on foot and horseback with my dogs. We can hunt ducks in the morning and quail in the afternoon. Griffs point, but they're also water dogs and superb retrievers.

Bill Marlow is president of the American Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Association. He shares his Baltimore home with three Griffs.
