Breed: Weimaraner:

  • The Weimaraner most likely came from Weimar, Germany.
  • Trained at first for big-game hunting, it was later used as a bird dog and water retriever.
  • Weimaraners make excellent watch dogs.
  • The Weimaraner is a medium to large sized dog, between 22 and 27 inches high at the withers.
  • Weimaraners usually weigh between 49 and 60 pounds.
  • Their ears are set high and are relatively long; their tail is usually docked.
  • Their coat is short and dense, and easy to groom.
  • It can be roebuck, silvery grey, mousy-grey, and all intervening shades of grey. Occasionally there will be white patches on the chest and/or paws.
  • A rare form of Weimaraner has a long-haired coat (and this type of dog does not get its tail docked).
  • Their eyes can be shades of amber or blue-grey. Their nose should be grey rather than pink.
  • Weimaraners need a lot of exercise!
  • They are active, fearless, and friendly dogs.
