How to Get a Puppy
$1500. Price includes a $200 deposit. All puppies are the same price because the same amount of time, effort, research, testing, and care went into raising each and every one of them. Includes health guarantee and lifetime “tech support.”
Estimated Wait Time
Your name is included on the waiting list along with your preferences for sex, plans for the puppy, family details, etc. We match each home with the puppy that is the best fit for their family.
Go Home Date
8 weeks after birth you can pick your puppy up in person at our home in Oregon on the scheduled puppy pick-up day. Or we can deliver the puppy to your nearest airport. The cost for this delivery service is $500 plus the cost of airfare and health certificate. Puppies need time to nurse, grow, and develop with their mother and littermates before they can join their new families.
A newborn puppy should stay with their breeder, mom, and siblings as they develop physically and gain new social skills alongside their brothers and sisters. The age a puppy can go home depends on the breed, and even the individual, but generally is around two months.
If you have questions at any time during the puppy purchase process please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at (541) 761-1867. We are always happy and eager to answer your questions.

Hi! I’m Laura. I have a few questions to help me get to know you a little better so I can pair you with the right pup. Don’t worry, this in no way obligates you to put a deposit down or get a puppy.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good with Other Pets?
GWPs have a strong prey drive and don't cohabit peacefully with other animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and hamsters. Socialization from an early age may help them accept cats and dogs as part of the family. The breed is known to be aggressive with strange dogs, especially of the same sex.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good with Kids
GWPs have a lot of energy and should be supervised closely around young children so they don't knock them down accidentally. They are generally tolerant of kids in their own family, as long as they have grown up alongside them. Socializing German Wirehaired Pointers to be calm around children is important.
(Note: Every dog has a unique personality and distinct life experiences that affect his disposition. As a rule, adults should always supervise playdates between kids and their four-legged friends.)
Do German Wirehaired Pointers Swim?
With their webbed feet and water-resistant coats, German Wirehaired pointers were made for the water. They are excellent swimmers and one of their favorite activities is jumping into the water to retrieve a dog toy or stick.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Good Waterfowl Dogs?
German Wirehaired Pointers are excellent waterfowl hunting dogs. They are versatile gundogs, however, and make adept upland hunting partners as well.
Are German Wirehaired Pointers Hypoallergenic?
No. While GWPs shed lightly, they do shed consistently year-round. As a result, they leave pet dander in your home, the most common cause of pet-related allergies.
