Hi,

So here’s a photo of Generalfeldmarschall Wolfram von Richthofen’s dog. I wonder what breed is it? Thx!

Regards,
Alex

Hello Alex,

Judging by the dog's size and the shape of his/her skull, I think that's a German Shorthaired Pointer Dog. These dogs are easy to train, very intelligent, energetic, and playful dogs. But you should probably ask a veterinarian, as I don't have a degree in veterinary sciences.

I hope I was able to help you.
Yours, Clayton.

Thx Clayton,

Yeah I also think it’s a pointer, tho my opinion leans more towards wirehair Pointer due to its fluffiness. And that’s a great idea! I’d definitely ask my vet next time I take my dog to her!

Alex

your dog is awesome.. I love dogs, and always wanted a boxer... dumbest dog I have ever owned.. cant teach him crap and my wife is a dog trainer I think I picked wrong bullie breed.. got a question though.. I have never seen an american bulldog look like yours, so where would you look for your specific breed?
