Opinion

We have a loving female Weimaraner named Sophie that we got from a great breeder in Colorado, Fox Fire Weimaraners. We know now that we should have laid down rules when she was a puppy because she rules our house now. She is very spoiled, and so smart that she tricks us. Sophie enjoys sleeping in the sun, barking at the neighbors, giving kisses and jumping on our houseguests. At 5 years old, she is still as active as a puppy! We love her so much and she will always be considered our first child. -Tina, DefineDog

Sophie is the coolest Weimaraner ever - she is so intelligent but what we love best is her incredible personality - she really THINKS things out and she watches TV like she understands what's going on!
