Om Weimaraner:

Often referred to as the "grey ghost" because of the distinctive color of its short, sleek coat, the Weimaraner is a graceful dog with aristocratic features. Bred for speed, good scenting ability, courage and intelligence, he remains an excellent game hunter and active participant in other dog sports.

A Look Back
Originally known as the Weimer Pointer (derived from the court that sponsored the breed), the Weimaraner is a product of selective German breeding and comes from the same general stock as other German hunting breeds. It is believed to be a descendant of the Bloodhound and was originally used to hunt wolves, deer and bear. Over the years because of the rarity of bigger game in his surroundings, the Weimaraner adapted to become a bird dog and personal hunting companion.

Right Breed for You?
Lauded for his ability to work with great speed, fearlessness and endurance when on the hunt, the Weimaraner is also known for being an easily trainable, friendly and obedient member of the family. This is a breed that loves children and enjoys being part of his family’s "pack." Grooming maintenance is low due to his short coat.

Historikk:

As history is reckoned, the Weimaraner is a young dog, dating back only to the early 19th century. The Bloodhound is believed to be among its ancestors, if not in direct line of descent, then certainly in a collateral way. The Weimaraner that we know today is the product of selective German breeding, and it came from the same general stock which has produced a number of Germany’s hunting breeds, including the GSP. In fact, in its early days, the Weimaraner was known simply as the Weimer Pointer, its name deriving from the court by whom the breed was sponsored.

Throughout its early career, the distinctively gray Weim was propogated by nobles in the court of Weimar who sought to meld into one breed all the qualities they had found worthwhile in their forays against the then abundant game of Germany. In short, they sought speed, good scenting ability, courage, and intelligence. Formerly, the Weimaraner was a big-game dog used on wolves, wildcats, deer, etc. By the time these became rarities in Germany, the breed was supported by a club originally started by a few fanciers. It was extremely hard to obtain a Weimaraner at this point, since one had to be become a member of the club prior to purchase of the dog in a strict attempt to keep breeding and lines pure. However, when the American Howard Knight became a member and imported two specimens to the US, he helped found the club in this country and served as its first president in 1929. Meanwhile, the Weim grew to become a bird-dog rather than a big-game dog due to shifting priorities and rarity of big game, leading to its use as a personal hunting dog. The AKC granted recognition to the breed in 1943, and curiously enough, the Weim has seen more actual competition of various kinds in America than it ever saw in Germany.
