Weimaraner (Comprehensive Owner's Guide)
By Lavonia Harper
A grey spectre poised on a misty meadow, forepaw raised; an illusion of molten silver blending into fog. Two golden eyes pierce the smoky haze. Vision, artform or ancient canid? For centuries, the 'grey ghost' called the Weimaraner has captivated the souls and imaginations of hunters, artists and dog aficionados. Cloaked in mystery and controversy, the Weimaraner remains as much a paradox today as it was centuries ago when it was closely guarded by German royalty, who prized the dog's power and endurance. Revered also for his loyalty and devotion to his master, the Weimaraner was sometimes called upon to defend his hunter/master from the wildebeest encountered during the hunt. Although it has evolved into a prized family hunting companion, the Weimaraner's original instincts remain strong. Highly intelligent and affectionate, it is fearless and protective and will still track and retrieve wildfowl as well as furred game such as fox or rabbit.
