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 York?
New York is a hugely diverse state, with New York City providing a contrast to more rural and suburban communities upstate. With this diversity comes a real range of standards for puppy and dog care.
A study by Pawsafe ranks New York as the 32nd most pet-friendly state in the country. According to Safewise, New York has the third-highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals, behind Florida and Washington. An estimated 44% of all rentals are pet-friendly. However, only 27% of New York residents own a dog. This is a solid amount below the 40% average among all U.S. households.
Are cities in New York dog-friendly?
A study by WalletHub ranks the top 100 U.S. cities for how pet-friendly they are. The study looks at metrics like pet care provider costs, walkability, the number of pet-friendly apartments, veterinary care costs, and animal welfare laws.
Buffalo and New York City just make it on the list as the country’s 86th and 90th most pet-friendly cities.
The city of Buffalo also has a healthy amount of dog-friendly parks. According to the TPL, the city has the 58th most dog parks per capita with 0.8 parks per 100 residents. There are plenty of off-leash parks and features for your dog to enjoy.
New York City pups
While it can be a challenge to raise a big dog in a little NYC apartment, the city does have some amazing perks for pet lovers.
Research from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shows that New York City has the 27th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.7 dog parks per 100,000 residents. Many of these parks allow dogs to run off-leash between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m.
There are 28 off-leash dog runs in Manhattan alone. Many are separated into areas for small and large dogs and some have water features to keep your pet cool. You can use your early morning walks to find some new friends for you and your pup.
According to NYC Dog Data, the top dogs in the city are:
American Pit Bull
Of the various neighborhoods in New York City, Manhattan has the highest concentration of dogs, with an estimated 119,340 pups. After that, Brooklyn is the most populated district with over 88,742 doggos.
The city also has excellent services for dog walkers, pet care, vets, and more.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in New York
New York does a decent job when it comes to the treatment of animals at shelters. But there are some areas where the state can improve. Of the 80,855 dogs and cats that entered New York shelters in 2020, they only saved 85.6%. The “no-kill” state benchmark is a 90% save rate. We hope to see New York push for getting more pets in loving homes.
