I have a German Wirehaired Pointer who will be 1 year old in April and still does not have her long wirey coat, bushy eyebrows, or beard. Does anyone know when they get it or could something be wrong with her? Her parents are purebred and registered so hard to imagine she is bred with something else. Please help!

Since I have German Shorthaired Pointers I can not speak from experience, but I do know that many "coated" breeds do not get the full adult coat untill they have matured, around 16 - 18 months. To be sure I would check with your breeder or others, they would certainly know if there is anything wrong.
