Shades of Grey
Weimaraners have 3 acceptable colors within the breed; mouse grey, silver and blue. We breed all three colors however, we mainly breed mouse grey and silver. Blue Weimaraners can be registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC)but are disqualified in standard breed showing. They can be shown in agility and field trials and can compete in Weimaraner Club of America (WCA) with a DQ (spray or neuter) Certificate from the WCA national office. Below is a picture with all three colors a Weimaraner can be. The left is the tradition mouse grey, the 12 week puppy in the center is a silver and the female to the right is a blue.
If you see advertisements with "rare color" in it BEWARE! This is not a full bred Weimaraner.
It doesn't matter what they say; it is a scam, the dog is not a full blooded Weimaraner. The same thing goes for someone advertising "silver labs" a silver lab is not a full blooded Labrador or Weimaraner, it is a mixed breed to get the silver color and is not accepted by AKC. This is the same if you hear some one say they have an albino Weimaraner, again it is a mix of a lad and weim, that took the yellow of the lab coat and the body of a weim… Again BEWARE!
A Weimaraner can have a white crest on the chest. This is acceptable within the breed but not preferred in showing or conformation. The crest should be small and on the chest area only. On occasion the small crest can disappear as the dog gets older.
