The Weimaraner is the German Doppelganger of the Vizsla, and is a popular hunting dog and family companion. With a loving attitude, eagerness to learn, and a strong desire to please, the Weimaraner makes a great addition to the family or a hunting troop with proper obedience training and early socialization.
The Weimaraner is a newer breed than the ancient Vizsla and is often equipped with a more dominant personality. While the two look similar, they share little in common in terms of DNA. The two can often be identified through their eye color; the Vizsla will have eyes that match its coat, while the Weimaraner will likely have amber, grey, or blue-grey eyes.
Standing 23-27 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 55-85 pounds, the Weim is considered a medium-large hunting dog. Often seen in blue, black, or silver, authorities believe the breed was created from a mixture of the English Pointer, Great Dane, and a little bit of the less popular Huehnerhund for its distinct silver color. While originally bred to track and hunt large game like deer and wolves, noblemen in Germany pivoted the role of the Weimeraner to smaller game as the forests in Germany shrunk and large game became scarce.
A trait shared with the Vizsla is the Weimeraner's desire to be close to their people. These dogs have a strong desire to be part of a pack, and while not considered an aggressive breed, the Weim will defend those they love. Early training and socialization are encouraged to make sure the Weimeraner builds good habits and is friendly to all. With the right upbringing, they’re a loyal and affectionate companion who will shadow you all day long!
How dog-friendly is New Mexico?
New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups.
Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.
Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services.
Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!

Yes! The good news is that New Mexico has some great pet-friendly destinations. A study by Wallethub ranked the 100 largest cities in the country by their pet-friendliness. Here’s how New Mexico’s biggest city stacked up.

They placed 16th for pet budget and 7th for outdoor pet-friendliness. The city lagged behind a bit for pet health and wellness, ranking 83rd.
A separate study by the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shares great information about dog parks. They published a ranking of the 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Albuquerque ranked well in the 13th spot with 2.4 dog parks per 100,000 people.
