Dog Breed's Main Info
The Breed's History:
This breed takes its name from the town of Munster, Germany, where it was created in the late 19th century by crossing German Longhaired Pointers with Wachtelhunds, which were Longhaired Spaniels. The goal was to breed an outstanding multipurpose dog that could not only point but also track wounded or dead game.
Like so many breeds, the Small Munsterlander nearly disappeared during World War II because of food shortages, but the breed was revived in its homeland. From there, the dogs spread to other countries, where they were prized for their small size, hunting abilities, and family-friendly nature. In the United States, the Small Munsterlander Club of North America is helping guide the breed's development. The United Kennel Club recognized the breed in 2006.
