The Weimaraner is a striking dog, which was first bred by nobles of the German Court of Weimar for the purpose of hunting game, and later to be trained as a retriever.
The Weim is often referred to as the “Grey Ghost” due to its slender and svelte build and beautiful gray or blue coloring.
Weimaraners are already gorgeous – if we should mix in the characteristics of some different breeds of dogs, the results are some fine-looking canines, with superb intelligence to match!
Weimer fans beware though – these pretty pooches pack a challenge for owners. These guys are full of energy and extremely intelligent, Plus, they’re stubborn to boot! While they can be great dogs for experienced owners, most greenhorns will be better off with an easier breed for their first pet.
Let’s explore some of the amazing combinations you can find Weimaraners mixed with!
1. Boweimar (Weimaraner / Boxer)
An excellent family pet with bundles of energy to keep everyone on the go! The Boweimar loves and thrives on buckets full of attention and does not mind letting you know if he should be feeling neglected. Keep your buddy happy with plenty of play and exercise.
2. Golden Labmaraner (Weimaraner / Golden Retriever / Labrador Retriever)
This chocolate-colored vision gives new meaning to the word friendly, as both her parents are known to be extremely responsive and approachable. Their sociable nature makes them the ideal choice for households with small children and other species of pets. They love any attention that their owners are willing to bestow on them and adore energetic playtime outdoors.
3. Great Weimar (Weimaraner / Great Dane)
Great Weimars are muscular and graceful animals, with powerful bodies, commonly reaching a weight of more than 100 pounds.
They have a friendly and reliable temperament and love spending their time among family members. If left on their own for extended periods they might develop separation anxiety, and they do not like being restricted to small spaces, so a big garden and play area is a big consideration before bringing this beasty home.
4. Pointeraner (Weimaraner / German Shorthaired Pointer)
This darling crossbreed will eventually become a relatively large dog who is great hunter and retriever (if you should live in the Scottish Highlands and need to catch your own dinner…)
They are extremely athletic, spirited, highly intellectual, and are easy to train. His life goal is to please his owner. Since the Pointeraner is quite a large dog, he does not like being confined to a yard or kennel and would much rather be considered a house dog, spending his time with his head on your feet.
Because of his superior intelligence, he’ll need stimulation and training as a bored Pointeraner might become destructive and pick up bad habits.
5. Weimapeake (Weimaraner / Chesapeake Bay Retriever)
The Weimapeake is a medium to large sized dog who will eventually weigh between 60 – 90 pounds.
They are sporty dogs who love and need plenty of exercise. If they are left on their own for long periods they tend to relieve their boredom by digging up flower beds or even trying to find an escape route under a fence.
Make sure you entertain your Weimapeake as much as possible with free runs in the park, puzzle toys, and plenty of play time. They are amazing family pets who are loyal, affectionate, protective, and thrive in the company of their fellow housemates.
6. Weimardoodle (Weimaraner / Poodle)
This adorable little face is the result of a cross between the Weimaraner and Poodle and sports the naturally longer coat of the Poodle. Thankfully this pup does not shed excessively and requires only occasional grooming.
She has a huge heart with an enduring personality and is always ready for play and games with you. She loves your affection, cuddles, and kisses, and might become destructive if she feels neglected.
She makes the ideal pet for homeowners with limited space or for the older person looking for a constant companion.
7. Weimarrott (Weimaraner / Rottweiler)
Quite an intimidating appearance with plenty of muscle and brute strength, the Weimarrot is a fairly large dog who will eventually tip the scales at close to 100 pounds.
Their astute intelligence can be targeted with training and these animals make excellent companion and service dogs. They are obedient animals, who show great affection towards their family members, making them especially good in homes with kids.
However, they don’t tend to get along well with other pets and need to be socialized into multi-pet homes from a young age if they should be expected to play nice with other animals.
8. Weimshepherd (Weimaraner / German Shepherd)
Quite the combination in terms of temperament, the Weimshepard displays the high energy disposition of the Weimaraner and the easy going and trainable nature of his German Shepherd ancestor.
This pup thrives on stimulation and will quickly become restless if left to his own devices for very long. Training is essential for this animal to tame his natural rowdy instincts, and he is not recommended for first-time dog owners who might find themselves out of their depth with this lively pup.
Parents of small children should also keep a close eye on the animal as he might become too boisterous around the little ones.
9. Ridgemaraner (Weimaraner / Rhodesian Ridgeback)
This beautiful creature is the epitome of good looks and personality. The resultant cross is a noble, strapping animal, with an abundance of energy that needs to be worked off on a regular basis.
The natural tenacious nature of the Ridgeback makes this pup an independent pet who will constantly test his boundaries and pecking order in his family hierarchy. He requires a consistent, firm hand and obedience training is non-negotiable. He is extremely territorial which makes him a perfect guard dog.
10. Chowmaraner (Weimaraner / Chow)
As both ancestors of the Chowmaraner were specifically bred as hunters, this combination of both parents results in a highly energetic animal who most definitely needs a firm hand and training to keep him in check.
The Chow Chow’s character and striking looks make a strong appearance here with the fluffy coat and protective nature. Chow Chows can be quite aggressive and protective and are not typically recommended for first-time dog owners or households with small children. While Chow Chow mixes can vary in temperament depending on the other parent breed, the prickly Chow demeanor is something to be considerate of.
Properly trained though, in the Chowmaraner you’ll have a lifelong friend and companion who will literally give up his own life to protect yours!
11. Dalmaraner (Weimaraner / Dalmatian)
As both parents grow to a relatively large size, your crossbreed will also be reasonably large, requiring enough yard space to run and play.
The Dalmaraner has a high energy level and is reasonably intelligent, making him easy to train. He is extremely loyal, and can show aggressive tendencies to strangers which makes a good choice for a guard-dog! He does have a sensitive side though, so as an owner you should always handle him with patience and a kind voice.
12. Pittmaraner (Weimaraner / Pitt Bull)
The Pittmaraner is quite an unknown and rare crossbreed which you won’t come across very often. If you do happen to become an owner of one, you’re in for the ride of your life, as this lovable and over-energetic pup will certainly keep you running and on your toes.
They tend to resemble the Pitty side of the family more closely in both appearance as well as temperament, and leash training is considered a must, as their inquisitive nature tends to get the best of them and they’re known to wander off.
The Pitty side also shows dominance in their over-reaction to perceived threats and it’s advisable to properly socialize your doggy before letting him run loose with his fellow family pets.
13. Weimarsky (Weimaraner / Husky)
This beauty gains her good looks from both mom and dad, and both ancestral breed traits tend to shine through equally strongly.
Strong and big boned, this furry friend is gentle, outgoing, alert, and friendly. They are highly trainable and can’t get in enough playtime, seeming never to tire. They love spending every waking moment with their family and will drown you in kisses if you’re open to such affection.
She’s good with kids and other pets, but should be properly trained to ensure her exuberant spirit doesn’t scare off the little humans.
14. Beagiraner (Weimaraner / Beagle)
Beagiraner over here is a super sweet and even-tempered pooch. High energy levels combined with an extraordinary work ethic, alongside shrewd brain power makes this dog the ideal house pet.
Her temperament ensures that she’ll be great with kids, but an adult might not get along as famously with other dogs or kitties. If you adopt your Beagiraner as a pup you’ll be able to socialize her to accept her fellow house pets as friends and not foes.
15. Vizmaraner (Weimaraner / Vizsla)
This stunner is the perfect pet for sporty owners who love running, cycling, or hiking, as the Vizmaraner will love keeping up with you.
Be warned though, if he doesn’t have the opportunity to work off all that excess energy he will quickly become destructive and often seek escape to investigate the wide world out there. He is also known to be a little head-strong, requiring a firm and consistent handler – the same holds true for Vizsla mixes too!
16. Weipyrenees (Weimaraner / Great Pyrenees)
The temperament and character of this unique mix-breed is nothing short of perfect! They are kind, mellow, and gentle, plus they love spending their time in the company of their family.
They are loyal and extremely protective of those they love and will protect their nearest and dearest at any cost.
They get along famously with the littlest in the household, from the human baby to the fluffiest bunny! They’re even great with livestock – if you’re a sheep farmer, he’ll be the perfect guardian for your wandering lambs.
Without training they can become willful and manipulative, so make sure you enroll you both in obedience school.
