The silver and gray Weimaraner is not only beautiful, but also a particularly smart dog. This energetic breed is known for its love of physical activity, alertness and intelligence. And of course, the Weimaraner probably has the coolest nickname in the dog world - the gray ghost. This nickname is not only from their color, but because they constantly follow their owners wherever they go. It's important to keep in mind that these dogs do not like to be alone if considering adopting a puppy. If they feel lonely, it can cause quite a bit of stress, and we all know that nervous dogs are prone to destroying furniture, so the Weimaraner is not the best option for someone who is away from home most days.
The Weimaraner is a total athlete and would do well in a very active home. It can keep up with long distance runners, and even bikers. This athleticism and athletic drive comes with responsibility though- they have great wanderlust, and should always be kept on a leash.
