Weimaraner Characteristics

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 South Dakota?

South Dakota is a great state for traveling with your dog and has strong animal welfare laws. Though it has some room to grow, South Dakota ranks pretty well for dog-friendliness.


We evaluated two major studies to understand how each state accommodates pets. Both studies surveyed all 50 states and ranked them for pet-friendly factors like access to pet care and services, animal cruelty laws, dog parks, outdoor spaces, and more. 


The first was conducted by an animal welfare group called Pawsafe. Pawsafe ranked South Dakota as the 23rd most pet-friendly state. In this study, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from a safety review site called Safewise. They had a harsher view of South Dakota and ranked the state as 38th most pet-friendly in the country. 


But if we put these two studies together, South Dakota ranks pretty well in the middle of the pack.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in South Dakota

South Dakota saved 10,836 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 1,824 animals were reported killed over this same period. 


Six out of 23 of the animal shelters within South Dakota are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 77%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Improving this percentage will go a long way to ranking South Dakota higher compared to other states.
