Hi, I got my Ghost 6 yrs ago, I had Goldens prior. He is by far the smartest dog I've ever had, sometimes human! I can't say enough about my guy, the things he does how he acts towards me, other people and animals is uncanny. Never chewed, caused mischief, or has separation anxiety. Everyone in my town knows my dog , he's like the town pet! So happy I got him , not that my Goldens were great dogs and love them . He is another level in smarts, what he does is unbelievable. Can talk on and on but will end with, people if you want a challenge for the first two yrs, then he starts mellowing out then Writers are your dog, not a day goes by that I'm not amazed or hr gets complement , like what a gorgeous dog !

    I've had a female GSP that I adored for her loyalty, but my female Weimer, is even better & more intelligent. She 'tells' you what she wants and feels. You never feel lonely with this breed. Very regimented.

Should I get a puppy?My wife and I have two young children (3 5) and we have never owned a dog totegher. My brother-in-law has a female that he is trying to breed and now we are thinking of getting one of the pups. I work outside of the house, but my wife is a stay-at-home-mom which really means that she is out running around most of the time. I'm just concerned if we are biting off more than we can chew (especially with this breed). To be honest, if my brother-in-law wasn't breeding his dog, we wouldn't even be thinking of getting one. I know these dogs are very energetic and require a lot of attention. Any information from someone who does/has owned a weimaraner would be greatly appreciated. Also, what are the pros/cons of getting a female versus a male?I know it matters, so I will say that I do like dogs. I may have worded my question to give the impression that I don't. Also, I have nearly a half acre yard in town that is fully fenced.

    Only you can determine if you wish to get a puppy.  You say you wouldn't even be considering it unles your brother was breeding them.  That's a wee bit of a concern.  Yes a Weimaraner is a high energy pet.  Real high energy.  They love toplay, love attention and love to get into things that are not necessaryily put away.  My daughter has one and when I have slept over he will go from their bed to my grandsons to mine to make sure we are all just fine.  He sleeps with each of us for about an hour.  He is in the garbage, he sometimes takes the bunnies outside, he plays with anything that is a toy.  He is lovable, laughable, affectionate and good with children.  Males and female - you neuter/spay and I don't (just me) believe major differences)  They are not small pups and I'd think about handling the space with the 3 and 5 year old and housebreaking etc.  Then I'd go ahead and do it anyway.
