Average: 3.8 (13 votes)

The Griffon like breed has existed throughout history but it's not entirely certain where the dog originated, what is known is that the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon was developed to hunt on many different types of terrain. The four-wheel drive hunting dog will enter any sort of terrain without hesitation. The medium-sized Wirehaired Pointing Griffon weighs 50 to 60 pounds and stand at 20 to 24 inches tall. The breed thrives on human companionship and prefers to be a house dog.




Should I get a puppy?My wife and I have two young children (3 5) and we have never owned a dog thegtoer. 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.
