German Shorthaired Pointers (GSP)
originated in....yes, you guessed it, Germany and date back to
the 1800's. They are also referred to as German Pointer, German
Shorthair Pointer and GSP. At maturity, German Shorthair
Pointers average 55 to 75 lbs. and 21 to 25 in. in height. They
vary in color from solid liver to a combination of white, liver
spotted and/or liver roan. GSP dogs can also be black, black and
white, or black and ticked, although it is uncommon. Their coat
is short, dense and easy to groom.
There are many German Shorhaired
Pointer breeders throughout the east coast. If you're seeking a
German Shorthair breeder that is on a level all it's own, South
Side Farm will be your only choice. We offer purebred German
Shorthaired puppies and periodically have available adult rescue
German Shorthair Pointers. Our German Shorthaired Pointers are
bred for show/pet quality and handpicked including champion
bloodlines within the U.S., some directly from Germany, and
always chosen for characteristics that exemplify GSP's: willing
to please, intelligent, agile, friendly and happy. German
Shorthaired Pointers enjoy being with their family, are faithful
and will be right by your side biking, jogging, walking,
watching TV and loving every minute of it.
As with all of our breeds, German
Shorthaired Pointers can get along with just about everything
and everybody, but it's important to acclimate them to whatever
they may encounter. Proper socialization and training is
essential for any puppy and we believe it's absolutely necessary
for our puppies to guarantee their happiness and well being.
Give your new family member what it needs, and what you will get
in return will be cherished.
