On the Side of Weims

More information

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 gene pool as other German hunting breeds, such as the Bloodhound. Its distinctive color together with its short sleek coat granted the Weimaraner with the nickname the "grey ghost".
