Weimaraner
This complex and demanding dog has a distinctive appearance and an offbeat sense of humor.
Height: 23 to 27 inches at shoulder
Weight: 55 to 85 pounds (males average 77 pounds, females average 62 pounds)
Coat: short and smooth
Life span: 11 to 13 years
Breed Group: Sporting Dogs
Originally bred as a gundog to handle big game like deer and bear, the "Silver Ghost" was a highly sought-after breed in its native Germany. Today, these elegant but demanding dogs can still be found out on the hunting grounds, but can also make a fine family friend if well exercised.
