Gus aka Goose was acquired as a puppy to be a companion to their Silver Lab. As their current Lab was still intact, they
never became playmates  so Gus was surrendered to NCWR.   Gus is a social guy & has a neighborhood pack of playmates.

playmates to school & back as well as evening story time around the fire pit!

Patton's previous family bought him as a puppy from a breeder, but with 4 kids & a busy schedule, they felt that he needed
more attention than they were prepared to give. The proof that poor Patton was bored, was that he would jump the fence

companionship! Patton accompanies Mom to work every day & sometimes has a work buddy to play with too! Patton gets
to run in open space several times a day & he is enjoying the exercise.

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

CAIRO is a 5 year old male Weim who was found injured and taken to a shelter.
NCWR was contacted and asked if we could help. Fortunately, he was welcomed
into our favorite medical foster home where treatment began right away. It was
determined that this poor boy had been attacked most likely by a pack of dogs, and
possibly on more than one occasion.  Surgery was required to clean and close his
many deep bite wounds and he has been healing wonderfully. His cone is off, and
he's nearly ready to meet a new family to call his own. What a transformation from
when we first met him! He is gorgeous! His foster mom says he is truly one of the
sweetest Weims she has met, and he has no bad habits that he has shown yet. He
gets along beautifully with people and her other dogs. Cats and children are
unknown. Cairo will do best in a home where someone is around much of the day
and give him all the loving he has missed out on in the past. Cairo is fostered in
Fresno.  His adoption fee is $350. If you are interested in adopting Cairo & making
him part of your family, please fill out an

These two wonderfully sweet puppies are considered special-needs, for they both have a form of spinal dysraphism
called Hopper’s Disease. They are a male and a female, born in the same placenta, actually.  Each puppy also has
some bowing of one hind leg, the left on Ariel and the right leg on Sebastian.  It is believed by multiple veterinarians
whom they’ve visited that this was a result of being too close together inside the same placenta.  Their conditions
are non-progressive and they will not be overly limited into and throughout their adult lives, but they will need
physical therapy, especially to help their abductor and adductor muscles in their legs.  As their musculoskeletal
system develops, the puppies are getting stronger and are thriving in foster care.  They were completely
unvaccinated when they arrived in rescue and had only been living outdoors on a patio, and so while they have been
catching up with vaccines, they are not completely potty-trained.  This will be something an adopter must be
committed to understanding, that it may now take more time and a larger commitment to get them on a regular

These puppies will need homes where their families can be devoted to them; in general Weimaraners are most
successful in homes where their family members aren’t leaving them alone for more than maybe a few hours at a
time.  The puppies are fostered in the Phoenix, Arizona area. In the best interest of each puppy, adoptive families
must be willing to travel to and home with their adoptive puppy by car.  If you are interested in one of these very
special pups, please fill out an
