The German Longheard Pointer (Deutsch-Langhaar) is one of the continental pointers and connects a bird-, hawk- and water-dog as well as the bloodline of Bracken (Scunthounds). Therefore, they have scope for great versatility. Many dogs of the Langhaar type can be seen in European oil paintings and copperplates featuring hunting, which are used by the hawk before the adventurous gun hunt. The first kennel associations were founded by breeders in the 1870s. Since 1879, pure breeding has been done and the main characteristics of the breed have been established. In 1897, Baron von Schörler wrote the first standard for German longheads and, thus, laid the foundation for today's pure reproduction.
