Phillip Elden, an avid outdoorsmen and mountain climber from Oregon, has found a trusted friend to join him on his journeys through the Cascades Range: his 6-year-old Weimaraner, Jeff.
Q: Why are Weimaraners such beloved pets?
Phillip Elden: A German breed, Weimaraners are high endurance, extremely active, and enjoy being outside regularly. Once known as Weimer Pointers, their descent is traced from Bloodhounds. Weimaraners were originally used to hunt bear, deer and wolves.
