The Württemberg pointer was a German gun dog, a derivative of the old Spanish pointer, which still exists today.
These heavier pointers were the first of the index dogs.
The Spanish pointer is most likely the oldest variety.
In fact, although the term “spaniel” is thought to reflect the Spanish origin of those dogs, it is more likely that the pointers were first founded in Spain.
Spaniels most likely derive from red and white hunting dogs of the Gallic Celts.
This dog was replaced by the faster moving Kurzhaar (German short-haired pointer).
The Kurzhaar was also derived from the Spanish pointer.
However, it is a lighter pointer that has evolved into an HPR.
The Kurzhaar is the best-known of the German HPR’s, and the Württemberg pointer no longer exists.
