What should you know before you get a Weimaraner?
A descendant of the Bloodhound, Weimaraners were bred from select German hunting stock in the 1800s. They were originally bred as all-round hunters of large game.
If you’re drawn to the mystery surrounding this breed, we’re here to tell you a few home truths.
Turns out Weimies aren’t the perfect companion we may have initially thought they were.
17 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Get A Weimaraner
1. Word has it that their stare is so intensely powerful, no one can resist giving them treats. No one.
2. Good luck keeping any sense of street cred if you’re walking a goofball like this by your side.
3. They’re bullies. You’ll be forced into having a nap with them when they want. It’s a tough life.
4. When you’re at your wit’s end, you can’t even ship them away from home. They don’t fit in any boxes.
5. Having a Weimaraner is alarmingly distracting and may affect your productivity.
6. They have no entertainment value.
7. All they care about is entertaining themselves, really.
8. They hate going on long walks and hikes. Might as well get a cat.
9. They’re lousy housekeepers. Seriously, don’t let a Weimaraner clean your windows.
10. Weimies are known to have a convincing poker face…
12. They’ll make you feel insecure about yourself because they have way more style than you’ll ever have.
13. Say goodbye to a good night’s sleep. Forever.
14. Oh, and say goodbye to your bed too. They’ll take up the whole space. Selfish.
15. Regal dogs? Nope, none here.
16. If you get a Weimaraner, you’ll have to learn to live with a second shadow.
17. And they’ll often hold toilet parties in your absence.
But let’s face it, they’re absolutely worth it.
