I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.

"Stevie" 

Bred to be an all purpose gun dog for the aristocracy, the "silver ghost" or Weimaraner was developed in Germany by Grand Duke Karl August of Weimar. 

Originally a big game hunter of deer, wild boar, and bear, he now uses his remarkable sense of smell to hunt smaller game and birds. Sometimes called the "Weimar Pointer", he is an all purpose hunting dog who works equally well with fur or feathered quarry. 

The first Weimaraners arrived in North America in the 1930s and earned a reputation as "the dog with the human brain".

This sleek, aristocratic, and graceful dog stands up to 27 inches high at the shoulder. His short, smooth coat comes in all shades of grey and requires minimal grooming. His eyes are blue-grey, grey, or shades of amber.

A devoted member of the family, the Weimaraner is alert, responsive, loyal, and protective. He is reserved with strangers and makes a fearless watch and guard dog. This dog is sensitive and needs to be an integral part of the family. He does not kennel well and should not be left alone for long periods of time. Destructive behaviour and excessive barking can be the result. The Weimaraner is confident, assertive, and dominant. Easily trainable, he nevertheless needs a firm, no-nonsense owner who will put in the time to train and socialize him. Obedience training should begin early.

The Weimaraner is a powerful, boisterous dog, who is tireless and has the stamina to stay on the hunt for hours at a time. His energy is boundless! This dog needs plenty of outdoor exercise including a good run as well as long, brisk walks. He does best with an owner who is active and enjoys outdoor activities.
