|A well proportioned dog whose body shows power and also the ability to develop the necessary speed for a gundog. He is of heavier build than the Small M'nsterl'nder, his confrontation more like the Long-haired German Pointer; he differs from the latter mainly in the head which is shorter. The foreface is blunter and looks finer due to the dry lips, which makes the whole picture of the head less heavy than the Long-haired German Pointer's head. His body is slightly longer than his height at the withers, thus appearing slightly elongated. The coat, though not really long on the body, looks like a long coat because of the well coated ears and the tail, the somewhat richer coat on neck and chest and the feathered ears, front and hind legs and the richly feathered tail.
|Valid color is white with brown or orange markings. Tricoloured, with the addition of tan markings, is permissible. A mantle is permissible, but generally less desired
|Dense, well covering the body. Not curly-haired. The coat is not really long, but gives the impression as there is long hair in different parts. On the neck and the forechest where some other breeds have a mane, the hair is longer; on the ears there
|Though the breed shows a strong hunting instinct in the field, and can be quite driven, these dogs tend to be more relaxed in the home than many of the hunting breeds. They are strongly attached to family members, loyal, and of sweet disposition, particularly with children
|By nature obedient, loyal and intelligent which makes him a valuable companion of the hunter as wall as a highly esteemd family pet dog.
