Based on your needs I would vote for the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. We share a home with two. They are well furnished with cold weather protection, work hard and prefer to hunt more than eat. Yet they are both mommy's boys inside the house and calm- one a lap dog. They hunt many days per year in northern New England and South Dakota. Both are unfazed by hunting in temperatures in the teens with a 20 mph wind blowing. In snow sometimes mushers wax is called for to keep ice balls from forming between pads.
Not sure how much experience you have but there is a big difference in hunting style, care for and training the flushing breeds and the pointing breeds. Keep doing the research and speak with as many reputable breeders as you can. Dog training clubs are a good resource such as NAVHDA.
