○ BREED NOTES These striking gray dogs are very large at 50 to 75 pounds, but they will hunt anything.
○ HUNTING STYLE Though known more as a bird dog, the Weimaraner is hound-like in both looks and demeanor. Rabbit hunting is in their ancestral blood. The roughshooting hunter would do well to let his or her Weimaraner point anything—rabbits included—but hold to flush.
○ BONUS POINTS The Weimaraner is ultra versatile, with upland birds, furred game, and even water retrieving in its skill set.
