Another breed that was originally bred for hunting, the Weimaraner has the need for speed. In addition to its swift nature, this pup’s most lauded athletic abilities include endurance, agility and fearlessness. It is included in Runner’s World's list of best endurance-running dogs and is sometimes referred to as the “grey ghost,” because of its unique coat coloring.
