Pricing/Colors of German Shorthaired Pointers
As compared to other breeds with a wide variety of coats available, German Shorthaired Pointers tend not to vary much in price across the different colors or patterns they may have. Instead, German Shorthaired Pointers are differentiated in price based upon whether the litter has been bred from a hunting/show lineage or simply as family companions. If you are looking for a trainable, lovable family dog, without the desire for a hunting or show bloodline, you can expect to pay anywhere from $800 to $1000 for your German Shorthaired Pointer pup. For those excited to have a hunting buddy or show dog, you pay the price of the bloodline and/or training, which could cost you between $3000-$4000. Though that price may seem steep, if you think about the extensive training that is required for a trusted hunting dog – all of the time and energy that training takes – the price starts to justify itself.
German Shorthaired Pointers are considered a medium-sized breed, perfect to cuddle on the couch or jump into the car for an adventure. As is true with any breed, the size of a German Shorthaired Pointer differs by gender.
Male German Shorthaired Pointers stand 23 to 25 inches tall, weighing around 55-70 pounds. Females are smaller, standing 21 to 23 inches tall with an average weight of 45-60 pounds.
