The Best German Shorthaired Pointer Names
The German Shorthaired Pointer is a distinctive breed.
These are highly active, loyal, loving dogs.
They are medium-sized dogs, which have a short coat and sturdy body. Built for action!
Their kind brown eyes and floppy ears provide an interesting contrast to the rest of their build.
And they come in two distinctive colors.
They either develop a short coat with an all-over “liver,” or medium brown coat.
Or it could be a combination of liver and white, with numerous spots and marking possibilities.
Drawing inspiration from a dog’s color coat is a prime pathway for name inspiration.
The GSP has a blend of cool and cute appearance.
We can’t deny the heart-melting effect of GSP’s big brown eyes and adorably quizzical facial expression.
But of course, you don’t need to name your dog after their looks!
