Great Weimar (Great Dane x Weimaraner)

The Great Weimar is an outcome of crossing the Great Dane and Weimaraner, with up to 12.5% of the Labrador Retriever’s gene also involved in its development. Their large size increased levels of energy, and immensely vocal nature does not make them an excellent choice for apartment living. Because of their athletic nature, they make for perfect hiking, jogging, and camping companion.
