The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a breed of dog used in hunting as a gundog. It is Dutch in ancestry, but is regarded as a French breed because the breed’s development took place in France. The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is particularly adapted for swampy country, where its harsh coat is excellent protection.
The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a medium-sized dog with a harsh, wiry coat. The coat is preferably gray with tan to brown markings and a brown head. Other acceptable colors: chestnut brown, white and brown, roan, and white and orange. A black coat is never acceptable. If the coat is tri-colored the dog is not a pure bred griffon. The Griffon should have flat ears that lie close to the head, and eyes that are either yellow or brown. Its nose must be brown
