That's okay, we get that a lot. Check out our website and learn all about our wonderful breed, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. There is a history lesson, research information, club details, and a whole lot more. Have fun and come back often!!

The AWPGA is a club for the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon enthusiast. We are the AKC parent club for the breed and as such are focused on all aspects of our dogs lives. You will find information on history, hunting, conformation, performance events, health and genetics, and the club itself on these pages. We are a growing club and are always looking to improve ourselves in regards to the club and in protecting the breed we love so much.
