Use of Weimaraners: The Weimaraner dog breed's high stamina and hunting instincts make it a great companion for bird or small-game hunting, although its good-natured personality makes it well-suited for family life.
History of Weimaraners: The Weimaraner dog breed descends from German hunting dogs, including the Bloodhound. The breed was developed as a gundog by the Grand Duke Karl August of Weimar and used for hunting big game, such as bear and deer. Contrary to their original use, Weimaraners now typically hunt smaller game, such as birds.
Conformation: The Weimaraner is a medium-large dog breed with an athletic build. Males stand at about 26 inches in height at the shoulder, with females about 2 inches shorter. The breed weighs 60 to 80 pounds. It has a sleek, smooth coat that comes in varying shades of grey, possibly with a white spot on the chest. It is generally short-haired, but some have a long, feathery coat. It’s eyes are shades of light amber, gray or blue-gray.
Special Consideration/Notes on Weimaraners: The Weimaraner dog breed’s life expectancy is 11 to 13 years. It is prone to bloat, so feed it several small meals a day as opposed to one large meal.
