Whatever you may think of the Weimaraner (pronounced vy-maraner) there is no denying it is a noble looking gundog. There is only one official colour, silver grey, which makes it instantly recognisable. It was indeed the nobles of Saxe-Weimar in eastern Germany who during the 1800s were responsible for the breed we know today, although early origins date back as early as the 13th century.
So what makes the Weimaraner so unique and special that once owners have fallen under their spell they often remain a devotee for life? The answer, I believe, lies with their character formed from their history. Grey hunting dogs, ‘long eared and of noble aspect’ were depicted on tapestries and paintings in museums and castles throughout Europe in the 15th century and gave rise to their nickname ‘the grey ghost’.
