A graceful and aristocratic German breed, the Weimaraner was developed for speed, scent ability, courage, and intelligence. Originally used to hunt wolves, deer and bears, the breed adapted to become a bird dog and hunting companion as large game became less prevalent. Friendly, fearless and alert, the Weimaraner loves children and enjoys being part of a family. He is obedient and easily trained, and his short coat requires a little maintenance.
