>A dog for all seasons – #1133


Of all the folk one meets at the TSOW, Falco is one of the most affectionate.

His owner (invariably dressed in hunting kit with plus-fours) tells me that he’s a Deutsch Drahthaar (wire hair) and – despite as being as greyhaired as me – quite a young dog.

People who know say this:

One gun dog that points like an English setter and retrieves like a Labrador? A tough dog that in the morning swims a mile in wind-swept freezing water after a wing-tipped Canada honker, then in the afternoon, carefully points a bobwhite and delicately fetches the bird after you flush and shoot it? An intelligent canine easy to train and handle, quick to mature into a useful hunter, and eager to be your family’s best friend in your home? Is the Deutsch Drahthaar this ‘one gun dog’?

  6. >Fabulous shot of a beautiful dog. Love this breed. So similar to the German Wire-haired pointer but there are differences.
