Welcome to the Society's Web Site dedicated to the Weimaraner.


Please read the amended Breed Standard and also familiarise yourself with the colour of a Weimaraner!

The North of England Weimaraner Society was founded in 1992. The Society is dedicated to the Weimaraner as a pet, show dog or working dog. Although our title includes the "North of England" we invite member applications from anywhere in the U.K and likewise overseas.



A medium size , grey short-coated dog (unless of course the Long-haired variety) with light coloured eyes. The dog presents a picture of power, stamina and balance. The hunting ability of the breed is of paramount concern. The breed is fearless yet friendly, protective, obedient and very alert and needs plenty of stimulation and has a brain that needs to be occupied.
The Weimaraner is a multi-purpose Hunt, Point and Retrieve gundog. This breed requires consistent treatment from sensible owners. A lively, cheerful, affectionate animal that can be stubborn. A very hardy breed with a good sense of smell and a passionate worker. Also trained easily for the show ring where he makes a handsome presence.

The correct colour of a Weimaraner is grey or shades of. It is not blue. To read more about the colour, please read the information on the Colour page.

***Missing Dog***

ANGEL is a Champion German Shorthaired Pointer, owned by Dawn Maw, a member of the North of England Weimaraner Society.

ANGEL disappeared whilst on a walk at 7.45am on 6 December 2012, near Barnsley. She has now been missing for over 4 weeks and there is a nationwide search on-going for her. It is believed to be probably the biggest dog-hunt ever mounted in the UK and Ireland. There a reward of 3000 offered for her safe return. We believe she could now be anywhere in the UK or Ireland or even in Europe.

Many of you may already be aware of ANGEL and are already helping in the search for her, however, whilst we have spread the word across the UK we still feel there is more that we can do. PLEASE keep an eye out for this lovely girl, we really need to get ANGEL home to her owner. I am also aware that many of you are members of other clubs/societies and will probably be getting a similar email in duplicate, however, we would rather someone receives this information several times than not at all.

I know ANGEL is a GSP but please, consider how you would feel in the same situation, she is a successful show dog and working dog, but above all that she is a much loved family pet whose family is devastated by her disappearance, I would hope that if I was in the same situation the dog community would be doing the same to help me recover my dog.

I have attached a poster and the press release for ANGEL. I really hope you are able to assist in spreading the word and getting ANGEL home soon.

Dog theft is on the increase; it could happen to any of us.
