Desired colors of the Weimaraner
Weimaraner dogs have been with us for quite a long time, since the earliest point of the 19th century. In addition to serving faithfully as man's best friend as far as hunting and outdoor activities are concerned, this breed has an interesting biological profile that makes it distinct from other dog pets. The Weimaraner breed is particularly known for its rare color variations that often attract everyone's attention. The different combination of colors is the simplest reason for which dog breeders greatly value and appreciate their beauty. New research findings have been disseminated that recently revealed some of the rarest with Weimaraner dogs available in the dogs market around the world.
When it comes to color shades, the blue Weimaraner breed is particularly known in the US for being the black sheep of the dog world. So rare is this breed that dog lovers registered under the American Kennel Club (AKC), despite registering the breed, does not allow it to be shown that the various dog shows in the country. The recent limitations by the AKC binding the blue Weimaraner breed have, however, propelled the dog variety into unprecedented fame and favoritism among dog lovers. They are particularly known for their agility especially as far as field events and competitions is concerned.
Longhaired Blue Weimaraners
Man's best friend has always attracted his attention and desire to go to the extreme. The discovery of the blue Weimaraner breed is perhaps the reason behind the existence of long-haired blue Weimaraner breed. When breeders came up with the long-haired blue Weimaraner breed, it was unlike anything that scientists and dog lovers in North America had ever seen. In fact, so rare is this breed that it has not yet been reported in anywhere outside North America so far.
Doberman markings of the Weimaraner breed of dogs are particularly very rare especially since the dog's marking can be quite faint and therefore hard to distinguish from the rest of the dogs color. The connection between the Doberman and Weimaraner is particularly long and intertwined. It is believed that the existence of the peculiar light-colored markings is as a result of non-scientific individual dog owners' experience of attempting a cross breed between the Doberman breed and ordinary Weimaraners.
Gray variants of Weimaraners
Most Weimaraners are traditionally accepted and regarded as grey in color. According to the Germans, however, a standard grey Weimaraner is normally coated with a diluted brown or chocolate coat. Some deviations, however, do exist among the grays in ways that lead to some grey Weimaraners turning more brownish while others are becoming more silvery. This particular trait has been reported especially in the United States and in Germany and is attributed to prolonged interbreeding and inbreeding among Weimaraners.
However, did you know that the original Weimaraner breed was developed in Germany and particularly improved with specific traits such as speed, agility, and endurance? The developers of the breed, however, were not particularly interested in the color of the Weimaraner as they focused on developing a dog with unique physical abilities and qualities. The traditional grey color, therefore, came as a result of improvement experiments and was regarded as accidental. Since then, the Weimaraners have evolved to become famous for their unique coloration.
