More About This Breed

  • Despite his name, the Small Munsterland Pointer is more of a medium-size dog. He's a popular hunting dog in Europe and is beginning to make a name for himself in the U.S. as well.

    Loyal and affectionate, he's generally easy to train and has great water-retrieving skills in both salt and freshwater. Like any sporting breed, he needs plenty of daily exercise. He does best in a home where he can use his hunting skills or turn his intelligence to a challenging dog sport or activity such as agility, flyball, or search and rescue work.

  • Size

    Males stand 20.5 to 22 inches at the shoulder; females, 19.75 to 21.25 inches. Weight ranges from 40 to 60 pounds.

  • Coat Color And Grooming

    The Small Munsterlander Pointer sports a brown-and-white coat with moderate feathering on the tail, belly, back of the forelegs, and inside the thighs.
