Introducing The Weimaraner
W hen you see a Weimaraner dog there is no way to confuse it for another breed. Sometimes nicknamed “the Gray Ghost,” these dogs have an unmistakable silver-gray coat that sometimes exhibits a bluish sheen. In addition to their coat color, Weimaraners are also easy to identify by their long legs, lithe bodies, and large floppy ears. From the very first time you see a Weimaraner, this is not a breed you will soon forget!
I distinctly remember the first time I saw a Weimaraner. I was hiking through the woods at a park near my house, enjoying the cool weather as summer transitioned into fall. I was coming around a bend in the trail when I saw a mystical grey creature come bursting through the brush, running right toward me. I stopped in my tracks, mesmerized by the beauty of the thing and was still in a bit of shock when the creature came right up to me and I realized that I was being greeted by one of the most beautiful dogs I had ever seen.
As the dog nuzzled my hands and sniffed me over, his owner came around the bend, apologizing for his dog being so forward. I dismissed the apology and immediately began peppering him with questions about his beautiful dog. What breed was he? Where did he come from? How could I find one for myself!
The Weimaraner is a skilled hunting dog with versatile applications for pointing, tracking, and more.
