Q. What is the breed of these puppies?
A. Zha Zha’s puppies are German Wirehaired Pointers. German Wirehaired Pointers were developed in the 1800′s in Germany for hunting. The coat is the dog’s most distinctive feature as it is weather resistant, wire-like and insulated in the winter months. The dogs are known for being intelligent, active and determined.

A: These pups are in a loving home, under the constant care of responsible professionals in Glenwood, Minnesota.
Q: Why does mom disappear sometimes?
A: Momma Zha Zha has room outside the pen that allows her to step away from her pups when she needs some “me” time. Her food and water dish are just off camera.
Q: Do the puppies need human interaction for socialization purposes?
A: Yes. After the first few weeks, the puppies will be handled regularly to familiarize them with humans. This helps their general disposition, and is very important to insure a healthy relationship toward people.
Q: When do they start to eat regular dog food?
A: The puppies will be on puppy milk until 3.5 weeks old. They will transition to soft puppy food and dry kibble soon thereafter. They will be weaned at 5 — 6 weeks depending on Momma Zha Zha.
