Asked in Domestic Dogs, Weimaraners

Is a Blue Lacy the same dog as a weimaraner?

User Avatar
No, it is not. The Blue Lacy is the Texas state dog, bred in Texas using a scent hound, a greyhound, and a coyote & is a fairly new breed [began in the late 1800s by the Lacy family in Texas]. Their blue color and eye color often causes them to be mistaken for weimaraners but they are NOT the same breed.

What is the best brand of dog food to feed my weimaraner?

User Avatar
Every dog is different, so there may be a bit of trial-and-error involved. I would start with something like Canidae, Innova, or Wellness. If the dog seems to have sensitivities you can try something grain-free and not chicken based. This will typically work. I prefer a raw diet for my weim due to previous allergies, but my next choice would be a homecooked diet, followed by an all canned food diet, can/kibble diet, and a kibble diet.

What is the difference between labradors and weimaraner?

User Avatar
Labradors are more energetic than weimaraners, but this is debatable. weimaraners are only found in the shade of grey, while Labradors can be found in black, brown and yellow/golden. weimaraners are more sleek than Labrador's. Also, weimaraners are great at sniffing things!

Are weimaraner dogs good family dogs?

User Avatar
Weimaraners are very good family dogs! They are loyal, handsome dogs with a great personality! They will never turn on you or disobey you if they are properly trained. I think they're one of the best big dogs!they'll always love their owners but not as much as a goo game of fetch or a good long walk down the street!

Asked in Dog Breeds, Zoology or Animal Biology, Pit Bulls, Weimaraners

What do pit bull and weimaraner look like mixed?

User Avatar
IT WOULD sort of look like both of them only mixed! I have one. She is 30 lbs. - slim but very muscular. She has a beautiful short haired tannish-white (taupe) coat, and amazing yellow jewel like eyes like a weimaraner. Little folded ears and a big smile, like a pit. She is extremely active, she can run and jump like a deer, very athletic. She is smart, sweet, affectionate, and extremely friendly with both people and dogs. But, watch out squirrels, cats, etc. she will hunt them down but I have never witnessed her hurting them, it's more about the chase. Awesome dog.

Asked in Animal Life, Weimaraners

How much does the average weimaraner weigh?

User Avatar
Females tend to be in the 50-60 pound range while males are in the 60-70 pound range. Our 9 year old male is 78, our 2 year old female is 57 and our one year old weim mix is 50. Weims are big dogs that need a lot of exercise and need to be a part of the family. * I think the above answer is a little low. I think females can range from 50-70 and males can range from 60-85 or so. I've heard a lot of people talking lately about 100-lb. Weims, and I think that they are either fat or poorly bred. My female is a lean 65lbs.
Asked in Dog Training, German Shepherds, Weimaraners

Would you get a German Shepherd or Weimaraner for dog agility?

User Avatar
Probably a German Shepherd - They listen to their owner more than a Weimaraner who may get bored and make faults. The German Shepherd excels in this sport, whereas the Weimie is better suited to gun work.
