  The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a strong and graceful, medium-sized hunting dog. It has a large, long head and square muzzle. It has a beard and mustache and thick, soft, bushy eyebrows. It has a rather long neck and its large eyes are elliptical with brown or yellow irises. It has a mild expression, but it lively. Its pendant, medium-sized ears lie flat and close to the head and its nose is always brown. The body is a bit longer than it is tall and its limbs are vigorous and muscular. It has straight front legs and the feet are rounded with webbed toes. Its coat is straight, hard, and wiry and is lined with a fine but thick downy undercoat. Coat texture varies depending on the percentage of wiry vs. soft hair. Coat care and the type of dog food can also effect the texture of the coat.
