Who we are

The GWP was imported into the UK in 1972 and a Rescue was started in 1976, so there is a long history of our breed looking out for their own in the UK. Since quarantine regulations were lifted in Feb 2000 it has been possible to help foreign rescue dogs and find UK homes. 

We are all members of GWP-UK.com, who all love and own GWPs, who volunteer our time and  experience. To work in Rescue requires a love of dogs, good communication, commitment,  persistence, patience, computer skills, thinking outside the box and a sense of humour !!!

As specialist of the German Wirehaired Pointer / Dratthur breed we understand the importance of finding a suitable home for our breed who are great family pets, loyal and friendly but are also hunting dogs who must be controlled outdoors.
