Prior to the 19th century hunting was the privilege of landed upper class who had the financial resources to breed, train and manage large kennels of specialty dogs. The middle class arose in the 1800's and gained access to hunting through land ownership. These hunters wanted companion dogs with diverse hunting skills. Within Germany, however, aristocratic hunters strove to preserve the traditional hunting ethic with its profound respect for game animals. This ethic necessitated versatile hunting dogs skilled in recovering lost and wounded game, and not just in locating or retrieving downed birds or animals. Thus, the concept of the versatile hunting dog, Jagdgebrauchhund, became popular at the beginning of the 20th century, and several versatile hunting breeds were founded at that time.

In the Münsterland area of Germany (roughly east of Holland to Hannover and north through the moors) a search began about 1870 for a versatile long haired Wachtelhund (quail dog) breed. Hunting dogs in this part of Germany were already noted for their staunch point, their enormous search drive and their outstanding nose, capable of both air scenting and tracking. Several hunting aristocrats as well the famous poet, Hermann Löns, and his brother, Edmund, were among the leaders of this group. On March 17, 1912, a group of 68 formed the Verein für Kleine Münsterländer Vorstehhunde (Heidewachtel)-the Small Munsterlander Pointer (Heath quail) Club--in the town of Osnabrück, north of the city of Münster.

The Small Munsterlander Pointer was accepted by the versatile hunting dog club (Jagdgebrauchhund Verein, or JGHV) that had been founded in 1899. To this day this club administers the tests that form the foundation for any versatile hunting breed. However, an acceptable breed standard did not appear until 1921 when Dr. Friedrich Jungklaus published a scientific work on Small Munsterlanders and their breed characteristics. His description of the breed is still fundamentally valid today. The smaller stature of the Small Munsterlander Pointer is distinctive among long haired German versatile hunting dogs.

Small Munsterlanders at that time were mostly plated, with many color variations (except black). Braunschimmel (roan) dogs first appeared in the mid 1920's, probably through one or more crossings with German Shorthairs. Liver and white are now the predominant colors for Small Munsterlanders, although glints of auburn are often apparent in their coats, particularly around the ears.

Germany is recognized as the parent country for Kleine Münsterländer by the FCI.

  • The Small Musterlander Pointer has been assigned the Sporting Group designation.
  • The Small Musterlander Pointer has been recorded in the Foundation Stock Service since 2006.
  • The German word for Pointer (Vorstehhunde) was added to the names of several versatile hunting dog breeds a number of years ago. The German name of this breed was recently changed back to Small Munsterlander from Small Munsterlander Pointer. The German club, however, did not change its title.
  • There are more than 10,000 FCI registered Small Munsterlanders in Germany alone, and the Small Munsterlander is the third most popular versatile hunting dog in Europe, where it is known as the Kleine Münsterländer, lying in numbers behind the Deutsche Drahthaar (German Wirehair) and slightly behind the Deutsche Kurzhaar (German Shorthair).
  • The German Small Munsterlander club has over 5500 members in 16 chapters throughout Germany; there are 12 Small Munsterlander clubs throughout Europe and a new International Small Munsterlander club was formed in the spring of 2006. The Small Munsterlander is specifically listed in the breed registries of at least 23 nations.
  • There are three long haired versatile hunting breeds, the Deutsche Langhaar (German Longhair), the Grosse Münsterländer (Large Munsterlander) and the Kleine Münsterländer (Small Munsterlander). Small Munsterlanders are about 2½ inches lower at the shoulders than the first two, larger breeds. German Longhairs have shades of brown and white, including solid colors, while Large Munsterlanders have only black and white coloration. Solid colors are not permitted in either Munsterlander breed.
  • Small Munsterlanders typically weigh 40-60 pounds and females are about ¾ inches lower at the shoulder than males.
  • Even though Small Munsterlanders don't have an undercoat they are hunted throughout the colder countries in Europe. They are used in Lapland and have been hunted in -60° (wind chill) in South Dakota.
  • Small Munsterlanders have little or no doggy odor and shed relatively little.
  • Small Munsterlanders are superb water dogs with great endurance and love salt and fresh water, as well as surf and rapids. Their beautiful tails are important swimming tools for these dogs.
  • Small Munsterlanders are agile and athletic, and can sprint at up to 25mph. In cool weather and with ample water, a properly conditioned healthy Small Munsterlander won't tire out on an all day hunt through wooded grouse terrain, rocky chukar territory, brushy pheasant country, open partridge plains or mucky duck marshes.
  • Small Munsterlanders have a strong pack instinct and thrive in outdoor oriented families. In the house they often can be found sleeping near (or on) the feet of their master or other family members.
  • The integrity of this breed in Germany is maintained by a testing program administered by the JGHV. This program tests hunting performance, conformation and temperament. Similar performance tests in America are administered both by NAVHDA (North American Versatile Hunting Association) and the JGV (the American branch of the JGHV).
