Bella's previous owner had to move in with her parents & there was no room for Bella. But Bella's new family was looking for someone
just like her & dropped everything to drive 10 hours to add Bella to their family! As long time Weimaraner Lovers, they had just suffered
the loss of their beloved 14 year old Weimaraner, Lily & now Lalli, their 2 year old Weimaraner mix, needed a companion.

Bella's new Dad is retired & Mom works from home so Bella & Lalli will have plenty of love all day long!  Bella & Lalli were instant BFFs &
enjoyed their ride home together.  The girls will enjoy twice daily 2 mile walks & visits to their local Palm Springs Dog Park during the
summer months.  Welcome to your new life Bella!

Cannon's Mom has joined the infamous club, the Failed Foster Club! When Mom was contacted by a potential adopter, she realized that
she coudn't part with the little guy!  Cannon had been purchased from a breeder as a puppy, but his owner was offered a dream job that
required a lot of travel, so he though it best to surrender Cannon to NCWR.

Cannon will keep his Mom company while she works from home & play with his new "sister", Mila, adopted from NCWR in 2016.  Cannon
& Mila will enjoy lots of activities with Mom, taking walks & hikes, going for jogs, visiting the beach & even accompanying their roller
blading Mom!  Mom says that Cannon is a great snuggler... Way to get a home, Cannon!7

Zora was adopted by one of NCWR's most stellar volunteers, but sadly due to Mom's accident while exercising Zora, Mom can no longer
keep up with Zora's energetic needs. But NCWR found the perfect match... a home in the Santa Cruz mountains with a new Mom that
needed a running partner!  Zora's new home is on acreage in the Santa Cruz mountains & includes playmates, a Blood Hound & an Italian
Mastiff! Two outdoor kitties, 9 hens & 2 beehives complete the menagerie that Zora now calls home!

Mom says Zora is getting along perfectly with her two playmates & has settled into the household routine as though she has always been
there. With everyone home for the holidays, Zora is getting plenty of attention! Mom & Zora have already settled into their daily running
routine & have encountered coyote, wild turkey & deer! Mom says Zora has been behaving perfectly on their trail runs!

Mom & Zora will begin obedience classes in January. Mom says she couldn't be happier & Zora is happy too!12/9
Gretchen was purchased as a puppy by a very Weim savvy guardian, but as he was aging & suffering from health issues, he found that he
could not provide the adequate exercise that the youngster needed. But Gretchen will have lots of activities now with her Stay-at-Home
Dad & soon to be retired Mom! Gretchen & Dad will take several daily walks, have playtime in the park across the street & occasional hikes
in the mountains near their Nevada home! After a fun filled day, Gretchen can snuggle up with in bed Mom & Dad.

Gretchen has already been a big help around the house, jumping in the big piles of raked up leaves so that Dad has to rake all over again!
Dad says that Gretchen has stolen their hearts & they are thrilled that she has joined their family! They have already bonded with sweet
little Gretchen....NCWR couldn't be happier for Gretchen!

George had already had two homes in his young life, by the time he was surrendered to NCWR! He was purchased as a puppy from a
someone selling Weimaraner puppies outside of a Sporting Goods store & when his children grew tired of him, he was sold through a
Craig's List ad. George's second owner found that he had too much energy for her 4 young children & surrendered him to NCWR.
That's when George's luck began to change, as he went to one of our "Gold Star" Foster homes where they spoke Weimaraner!
Not only did they understand Weimaraners, George now had a built in buddy, Patton, adopted from NCWR in 2017. From the moment
George & Patton met, they were BFFS!

Mom says she has never seen two Weims play so hard & so well together. They rough house non-stop with with lots of running & playing
in between. When they need a rest, you can find them curled up together on one of their many dog beds!  George & Patton go to work with
Mom every day & get lots of open space romps through out the day. George is now a very lucky boy!

8 year old MISSY was living on the streets of Tijuana after she was abandoned by her family. She was being cared for by a Foster Family
after a local rescue got her off the streets. NCWR was happy to help sweet-natured M
issy & found her a new Foster Family in Southern California! Missy won her new family over & is happily adjusting to her Forever Home in
San Juan Capistrano with a boy Weim buddy, a Chihuahua & outdoor kitties!  Mom says that Missy is "a perfect lady, well-mannered, quiet
& friendly.  She loves attention & loves to gently jump up to give Mom hugs when she comes home.  NCWR is so happy for Missy!

2 year old MAGIC was acquired as a puppy, but since his family had not done sufficient research on the breed, they soon found that they
were ill equipped to raise Magic to be a good citizen & family member. As he was still intact, Magic & his former Cattle Dog buddy began to
have altercations. Magic had been left to his own devices outdoors all day & developed some bad habits. But luckily for Magic, his new
parents, who had recently lost their beloved Kobe to advanced heart disease at 12 years old, knew just what Magic needed!

Mom says "When I first approached Magic & pet him, he immediately laid down & rolled over on his back with all 4 paws in the air..., that
was all I needed to know, we love him already! He is a gem!"  Magic loves his new active family & his new neighborhood in Lafayette,
where he & his family will hike or walk daily.  Adopting Magic has made their home feel whole again...

1 month old MACY was purchased by a family that was not expecting the amount of time & attention that a young Weimaraner requires.
As relegating her to a crate for most of the day wasn't working, the family surrendered her to NCWR. But Macy has found the perfect home
in Tracy with a Weimaraner savvy household (they have raised Weimaraners for 15 years & adopted 4 from NCWR!)!

Macy's new Paradise is on acreage that she shares with Mom, Dad, 2 human playmates & Weimaraner boy alumni & playmates, 8 year old
Cooper, 7 year old Remington, goats, pigs, chickens & ducks!  When Macy matures, she will take turns being Mom's jogging partner!

PATRONUS was returned to NCWR because he was too energetic & hard to control. But Patronus is now in a home where Mom & Dad, who
lost their Weimaraner after 15 years, totally understand him! We get glowing reports about him! His new parents surmised that Patronus
was just a beautiful boy who wanted to be loved very badly. Mom says, "Patronus is very well trained in basic commands & a dream to
walk on lead, he is also great off-leash & comes right back.  Patronus loves Doggy Daycare & is already making friends with all the
neighborhood dogs & their families."

His new home is in the dog paradise that is San Diego, with the best leash-free places on earth!

Patronus accompanies the family to soccer games & is happy as long as he can keep his 3 human playmates in sight! He also likes his new
kitty buddy, Bob, the 15 year old cat... they drink from the same water bowl!

Patronus is gaining stamina & is up to 3-4 miles of running & 3 miles of walking daily. When Patronus is not at Doggy Daycare, running or
at soccer  games, or at Mom's office, you can find him & his family at Fiesta Island for dog beach romps!

The best part for the NCWR Team? When we hear his from his new family... "WE LOVE PATRONUS. He is not going anywhere. He's a gem
& a great boy!!!

STAR needed a new family when her parents found that her 3 year old human playmate was very allergic to her. But no problem for Star,
as NCWR had just the new family for her! Star's new Mom & Dad adopted Amber from NCWR when she was a senior, which gives them
"star" status! When they lost Amber several months ago at the age of 16, they knew they needed a new dog in their lives...  Mom says that
they love Star already & are so thankful that NCWR found their special "Star" for them!
Star & her new family will regularly visit the various parks in their Livermore neighborhood. Have fun Star!

BLAKE was surrendered to NCWR from the shelter after his owners did not claim him. Blake is a happy boy with his Forever Family of
Mom & Dad & NCWR Rescue Dogs, Elvis (adopted in 2017) & Neska (adopted in 2018). All Blake wanted was a happy home & now he has
2! Blake loves his backyard in Concord, where he likes to dine on tomato plants (only the ripe ones!)! For vacations, they'll visit their home
in Reno.
Available Weims in Northern California
Even though you don't see your perfect dog here today,
don't despair. We constantly get new dogs. Many dogs
never post to our site as the right, approved home is
waiting when the dog comes to us.  It is important to
become home-approved to be on that list.

We cannot place dogs in homes with kids younger
than 5 years old.  Weimaraners can be too
rambunctious for toddlers.
As your beloved one nears end
of life, here is a wonderful way
to keep an image of them close
to your heart, a sterling silver

Meet lovely MISTY! She is a petite 7 year old blue Weim who is sweet, smart,
and sensitive with true star quality! She adores her humans and shows her
affection with discrete kisses and ready companionship. Misty's favorite indoor
activities are to lie in the sun and get belly rubs or gentle stroking from her
humans! Daily exercise is the key to Misty's success and she loves daily long
walks where she can sniff and explore the world around her. She is a quick
learner. Misty is rediscovering the Weimaraner behavior of pointing! Her foster
mom believes she would enjoy other activities, such as agility and NoseWork, so
we are hoping for a family that would enjoy bonding with Misty in activities.
Misty loves her toys and enjoys a good game of fetch (though she might not
always bring the ball back!). She is a typical shadow Weim, following her foster
mom around the house. Misty has no experience with children, so kids should be
older. She would benefit from being an “only dog”, but may also do well with a
calm male dog companion. Misty does have a prey drive, so we are looking for a
home for Misty without cats. She is house trained (uses potty bells), crate trained
and often goes to her crate for sanctuary, excellent in the car, and is improving
her basic obedience skills. This beautiful girl is spayed, up to date on vaccines
and heartworm negative. If you are interested in adopting marvelous Misty and
giving her the life she wants and deserves, please fill out an
EMERSON is a beautiful Blue Weim, and wonderful with people!  He loves
hiking, playing ball, and is a real snuggle bug!  This boy loves getting all the
attention you can give! He is active, and was thought to be born around
2008, making him 11, but  both his owner and vet feel he is possibly closer
to 9 or 10.  While he is a wonderful companion to humans, he is not always
so great with other dogs, especially in the home.

Emerson would be best for someone who is active, is a strong leader,  and
will give him  all of the love and attention he deserves. His new home
should not have other dogs, or cats.  Because of his competitive nature, kids
probably should not be included in his new life. If you are looking for a best
friend, a loyal companion to share your home...Emerson is your boy!
Emerson is neutered, UTD on vaccines, microchipped. Currently with his
owner in Sacramento.  His adoption fee is $250.  If you are interested in

ZORA is a 5 year old spayed, female Weimaraner mix. She is Camo's Littermate!  Many of you know Camo,  the NCWR
Canine Ambassador from our booth events throughout Northern California.  Zora was adopted 4 years ago by one of our
generous foster families. They were active and great in keeping up with Zora's exercise needs. Unfortunately, a year ago,
much of that ended when her adopter had a bad accident that has required multiple surgeries.  They tried using a local
dog walker, but it was not a good fit because they were primarily walking her,  and Zora prefers to run, run run!  His
owner has made the difficult decision to re-home Zora in hopes of finding someone that can give her the attention and
exercise she enjoys.

Zora can be mischievous when left alone. She does well in her crate for a couple hours, as long as there is another dog in
the home with her. Otherwise, she is prone to separation anxiety and will be very vocal. She knows her basic obedience,
but could benefit with some refresher lessons.  Zora loves hiking and running, will play fetch for a while, and she is
housebroken. She loves people!

Zora gets along well with other dogs her size, and will do best with another active dog in the home. Hopefully one that
loves playing as much as she does! Because of her high energy, we do not suggest small dogs, although there has never
been a bad reaction to them.  She's does great with the human toddler in the home, but again, with her high energy, we
would not suggest she live with young children. She is up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.  Her adoption fee is
$300.  If you would like to make your Christmas a little merrier this year, as well as Zora's, please fill out an
Meet dear CLOVER! He is 5 years old and he has a very calm, sweet and gentle disposition.
He loves everyone and will bond quickly with his new family! His foster dad says Clover
has been working on basic obedience, knows to "sit" for a treat, and is perfecting his leash
walking skills. He learned how to use the doggy door super quickly also! He would love to
bond with his new family in obedience classes. He loves to go with his family in the car and
is a wonderful car passenger. Clover is getting along well with the two female dogs in his
foster home and loves to show affection with them by licking their ears and cuddles with
them at night. He does well when left home alone for a few hours with his foster sisters but
we would love to find a home for Clover with minimal “home alone” time. Although Clover
is sweet and gentle, everyone, he has no experience with very small children so kids in his
forever home should be older. He also has no experience with cats so a home without
kitties would be best. Clover is neutered, up to date on all of his vaccinations, heart worm
negative and micro-chipped. Clover is fostered in Oakland.  His adoption fee is $400.  If you
are interested in adopting sweet Clover, please fill out an
Meet sweet JEFF! He is a 13 month old Weim mix. This guy knows how
to give some serious cuddles and hugs! He is super playful, silly, and will
make you laugh but also settles down nicely and enjoys a good nap. Jeff
likes playing fetch and loves, loves, loves to play with his toys but will not
destroy your shoes, socks, etc. He would appreciate a dog friend to play
with but also knows how to play by himself. He does well at the dog park
and enjoys romping with dogs of all sizes. Jeff is house trained and
learned how to use the doggy door in just one day! He is a nice house
guest and is not a “barker.” Jeff walks well on a leash and would love to
learn more obedience skills while bonding with his new family in
obedience classes. He is unknown with cats, so no kitties please and
children should be older (possibly teens). Jeff is neutered, up to date on
vaccines and heart-worm negative. His adoption fee is $350.  If you are
interested in adopting this adorable boy, please fill out an
