The Pudelpointer is a German breed of dog, developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by crossing the now extinct Pudel with the English Pointer. The aim was to create a versatile hunting dog, suitable for both waterfowling and upland game. The breed almost became extinct after the Second World War, but was revived in West Germany in the 1970s. It is now recognised by a number of kennel clubs, including the Fédération Cynologique Internationale and the Kennel Club in the United Kingdom.

The Pudelpointer is thought to be descended from the now extinct Pudel, which was itself a cross between the English Water Spaniel and the French Barbet. The Pudel was popular in Germany in the 18th and 19th centuries as a working gun dog. It was also used for retrieving game from water, and so it became known as a "Pudelfinder" or "Pudelpointer".

The first recorded cross between a Pudel and an English Pointer was made in 1881 by Hermann Lehner, a German breeder. Lehner's aim was to create a versatile hunting dog that could be used for both waterfowling and upland game. The resulting breed was called a "Pudelpointer".

The Pudelpointer became popular in Germany, particularly among hunters who valued its versatility. However, after the Second World War, the breed almost became extinct. This was due to a combination of factors, including economic hardship and the fact that many of Germany's best breeding stock had been destroyed during the war.

In the 1970s, efforts were made to revive the Pudelpointer breed. These efforts were successful, and today the breed is once again popular in Germany and other countries. The Pudelpointer is now recognised by a number of kennel clubs, including the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and the Kennel Club in the United Kingdom.
