Weimaraners

The Weimaraner is a short coated, gray dog, whose colors range from a light silver gray to dark gray. The eyes are always blue at birth, and then turn to light amber as the dog ages. The females are usually between 23 and 25 inches at the shoulder, and will normally weigh between 50 and 70 pounds. The males are larger, between 25 and 27 inches at the shoulder, and weighing between 60 and 80 pounds, on average. Some Weimaraners are larger or smaller than these normsThe breed is used for hunting pheasant, quail, grouse, and other upland game birds, and for waterfowl. Because of the lack of a thick, insulating coat, many people consider the Weim to be a poor choice for a duck dog, due to the extreme conditions a great deal of duck hunting is done, but in more moderate temperatures, they are excellent swimmers, and will retrieve to hand, in or out of the water. They are bred for intelligence and stamina, and are able to work all day in the field. They love to work and play, and have seemingly endless energy. When not working, they are part of the family, and expect to be included in everything that the family does.Although they excel at hunting, they are also used in obedience, tracking, as show dogs, drug detector dogs, in pet facilitated therapy, and as companions. They are a versatile dog with the brains and energy to do almost anything.
