Some breeders have Long Hair "pop ups" in their litters. Unfortunately, some breeders cannot recognize that a pup is a longhair, and they dock the tail on their longhair puppy! But we know when you breed two longhair Weims--you only get Long Hair pups. All of our pups will have long, feathery tails.
Males are approximately 25-27 inches in height at the withers (shoulder);
Males average 65-75 pounds.
Females are 23-25 inches.
Females typically weigh between 55-65 pounds.
Some perfectly healthy Weims can weigh as little as fifty pounds.
Eye color is anything from light amber to deep blue to grey.
Longhair Weimaraners come in Blue or Silver (shades of gray).
Both Blue and Silver (Grey) Long Hair Weimaraners are registrable with the American Kennel Club.
We do not dock the tail of Long Hair Weims.
If you read the history of the Long-Hair Weimaraner, you will find that America is the only country that does not accept the Long Hair Weim in the Kennel Club Show Ring. WHY??
Long Hair Weimaraners have been around from the beginning.
The gene is recessive, so they are not as common as the short hair Weimaraners, though in Germany--where the breed originates--they are just as popular as the short haired version.
The coat type is an asset evolved from withstanding the colder climate in Germany. Except for the length of coat and the fact that they do not have their tails docked, the breed standard is the same for a Short Hair Weimaraner. The Long Hairs coat as a mature adult is 1 1/2 to 2 inches long, with extra feathering around the tail and legs. The tail coverage is excellent protection in the field.
