Origin
The Weimeraner has been around since at least the 17th century. Indeed, when celebrated artist, Van Dyck created his portrait of Prince Rupert in circa 1630, there is by the prince’s side, a canine that looks almost identical to the modern-day Weimeraner. This also depicts the breed’s long-term association with nobility.
