Weimaraners were originally bred for hunting in the early 19th century. They were named for the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, Karl August, whose court was based in the city of Weimar and who was an avid hunter.

Weimaraners remain popular as gun dogs.  They’re very comfortable in water, and have webbed toes.
