White is not a color you associate with Weimaraners. In fact, white Weimaraners aren’t supposed to exist. But they do. This little guy was born on 1/21/2013. I’m not sure if he’s 100% Weim, but he sure is cute.
White Weims are a contentious issue. To read more about them and read some reasons on why they exist check out this post and this one, too.
Every breed of dog we have today came from other breeds. Mixing and experimenting is the history they all share.
This “Whitemaraner” is a good example of what can happen when you mix breeds. The dog shown here is a mix of a Weimaraner and a German Shorthair Pointer. Craig Koshyk is calling it a Whitemaraner over on his Pointind Dog blog. Check out this post and this one, too, to find out more about this dog.
Weimaraners– you either love them or hate them. Even though author Craig Koshyk is stands firmly on the love side, he understands why so many hunters are fed up with this breed. In Pointing Dogs, Volume One: The Continentals, Koshyk does a great job of telling the Weim’s story and pleading their case.
If you’re interested in these dogs, you should pick up a copy of Koshyk’s book. Just make sure you do it BEFORE you pick a pup.
