Weimaraner (Weimar Pointing Dog)

The Weimaraner dog breed arose at the beginning of the 19th century in Germany, at the court of the capital of the county of Saxe-Weimar – the city of Weimar.

In ancient times, the collie breed was guarded by flocks of sheep, goats, and pigs – the collie dogs still perform this function in their homeland today. There are opinions that say that the dog came to Britain with Roman legionnaires and colonists, about 2000 years ago. Dogs of those times had a larger physique, like modern border collies, and possessed mainly black hair.
