I am a very popular gun dog in England and Germany. I am versatile, being equally talented as a pointer or as a retriever.

Some people compliment me by telling me that I have the best qualities of the setter and the spaniel. I need a lot of exercise and, like some other hunting types, I do have a rather loud voice that might annoy your close neighbors.

I enjoy being around people, especially my family, so I really like it when we can go jogging together.

There are actually two of us Munsterlanders: a Large Munsterlander and a Small Munsterlander.

The Large Munsterlander, as it is called today, was developed back in the 18th century. My early relatives were called German Long-haired Pointers, but the puppies that did not fit the color requirements for that breed were allowed to develop their working and hunting talents, regardless of color -- and they became known as Large Munsterlanders (23"-24" tall; 55-65 lb.).

The Small Munsterlander was developed later by crossing the Brittany with the German Long-haired Pointer. Large or Small -- it matters not.

We are loyal and affectionate dog companions with good, level heads, making us a great choice for family and sportsmen alike. All either of us needs is a lot of love, plenty of exercise, and a little help brushing our hair.

When fully grown, I am between 19 and 22 inches tall (48.3 to 55.9 centimeters) and I weigh about 33 pounds (14.9 kilograms).
