10 Gauge Outfitters is dedicated to producing high quality German Shorthair Hunting Dogs. Our dogs have natural hunting ability, strong intelligence and desire to hunt. We breed serious bird dogs for serious upland hunters.
Through a love for German Shorthair hunting dogs and a passion for hunting upland game, 10 Gauge Outfitters now brings you the opportunity to share in this with their new breeding program. This program is designed to produce excellent hunting companions and guide dogs that are capable of hunt testing to extraordinary levels.
One of the most versatile sporting breeds around, the German Shorthair Pointer is an excellent hunting dog. Slightly smaller than a Pointer, the German Shorthair Pointer has a chiseled head, dark almond-shaped eyes, and a large dark nose used for tracking scent of game. However the most striking aspect of the German Shorthair Pointer’s appearance is his short sleek coat. The coat of a German Shorthair Pointer can be solid liver, liver and white, ticked or roan.
Males range from 23 to 25 inches tall and weigh 55 to 70 pounds. Females are 21 to 23 inches tall and weigh 45 to 60 pounds.
