Mya's former family bought her from a breeder back east & recently moved to California. Since moving, they discovered
that she suffers from Separation Anxiety, which became a problem with their work schedules. Mya was being fostered
by our very own Foster Coordinator, who quickly fell in love with her! Sweet & petite Mya has a new housemate,
Jackson, adopted from NCWR in 2013. Tiny Mya & Big Guy Jackson make quite a cute couple! Mya & her new family live
in Saratoga.

Young Macy joined her family as a puppy. Sadly, Macy was not included in the family activities which revolved around 5
children & became very distressed when she was left alone. But Macy is the perfect companion for her Foster Dad &
now her permanent Dad who lost his beloved Duncan adopted from NCWR in 2010. Macy will have the same wonderful
life as Duncan had accompanying Dad to work, visiting with dog buddies & swimming at the lake minutes from their
Lake County home. For entertainment, Macy can play with her Kitty pal & watch the Parrots!

Skittles has a sad & very familiar story. Her family adopted her when she was a puppy, but with careers & 2 young
children, Skittles was not getting the attention she deserved. But her story has a happy ending or a happy beginning! Her
new Mom & Dad adopted Skittles as a friend for Reecee adopted from NCWR in 2014.  Skittles' new home in Modesto
has 2 acres so the girls have lots of room to romp, fetch the ball, play frisbee or chase lizards! Dad is retired so Skittles &
Reecee will have plenty of companionship. Mom, Dad & the girls will walk to the nearby park so they can run in hills &
also enjoy trips to the beach or mountains!

Dudley was picked up as a stray, but is now in the elite club of "Dogs that have Charmed Their Foster Families"! Dudley
picked a good one... his new Mom is a vet tech & can take Dudley to work with her!
He also has a 10 year old Husky/Border Collie mix girl & 14 year old kitty as new housemates in his new home in

Frida was bought by a couple as a puppy, who quickly realized they could not give Frida the exercise & training she
required. She was then rehomed with a friend who also had no Weimaraner experience & was unprepared to give her
the time & attention she needed & deserved. Poor Frida just needed a family who understood her & her needs as an
active, fun loving Weimaraner girl! Well, Frida just got lucky! Her new Dad is a retired Peace Officer with K-9
experience, who was looking for an Emotional Support Dog to be with him & Fiona, adopted from NCWR in April. Frida
& Fiona enjoy napping on their King Size bed, stealing each others toys & romping. Dad says that Frida is VERY WELL
behaved, but as Dad has lots of experience training dogs, Frida will brush up on her obedience training! Mom, Dad & the
girls will have fun exploring the local near their Porterville home & national parks when they travel!

Lucky was taken in by the LA County Animal Services Shelter & put up for adoption. Although he was described as a
"great dog & very friendly", there was no interest in him. Lucky was not a great candidate for adoption as he was a
senior & had large, very visible masses! Even though he was out of our territory, Lucky was clearly not going to get a
home without NCWR's involvement.

The first step was securing a Guardian Angel Foster Mom who would give Lucky the TLC he would need to endure his
surgeries & recovery. The veterinarian removed one football sized mass & a second bowling ball sized mass, totaling 8
lbs! As he was recovering, Not-So-Lucky developed a rectal hernia. We took that opportunity to have 8 more lipomas

Lucky for Lucky, he had a new family anxiously waiting for him to be well enough to join them! Lucky likes to do tricks
for treats & loves his new bed. He is enjoying his new playmate, Enya, a 10 year old Weimaraner girl, his human brother
& sister & Mom & Dad! Lucky & Enya like to snuggle together in their Dogloo & explore the acreage next door at
Grandma & Grandpa's. When Lucky is fully recovered, the family will visit the dog park & include Lucky in all the
activities they enjoy, camping, fishing, hiking & exploring. Lucky & Enya will even go to soccer games to watch his
human sister play. As a true family dog, Lucky will go wherever the family goes!

Mom says they are very happy to finally have Lucky & so excited to give him a forever home!

Mugzy has been with his family since he was a puppy but they no longer had time for him. No worries for Mugzy though,
his Work-at-Home Dad is looking forward to devoting his time to Mugzy! Dad says that Mugzy is absolutely wonderful,
a total sweet heart, is very affectionate.  He should know having had Weimaraners for more than 40 years! Mugzy
seems to be the perfect dog with no bad habits. Dad is very happy with him & in love already! Dad & Mugzy will take
daily walks, play at the dog park & take long walks in the woods on the weekends. We are all so happy for Mugzy!

Bonnie Blue was a stray & now has big paws to fill in her new home in Washington. Bonnie's new Mom lost her
Weimaraner companion & running partner of 14 years in January.  Stay-at-Home Uncle will keep Bonnie company
during the day & Bonnie & Mom will be running partners! They will even participate in local dog friendly races together!
Mom is looking forward to long walks around the neighborhood & evening snuggles. We think Bonnie Blue will like that

ABBY is a 5 year old female Weimaraner,  She had been in her home since she was a young puppy but recently
has not been getting along with the other dog in the home. Abby also has separation anxiety, so the owners
felt that she would be much happier in another home.

Abby is considered a special needs girl. She came to us with a mass on her leg, which was thought to be
benign. We had it removed and a biopsy revealed it was a mast cell tumor. The better news is that the vet felt
that she got good margins, and we are hoping that she does not have any recurrences. Unfortunately, mast cell
tumors are hard to predict. Being vigilant by doing lump checks frequently and addressing them right away if
there is something, may help keep her healthy for years to come.  She has a crinkled ear from a healed flap
hematoma which adds to her appeal.

Abby will do best as an only dog. However, she seems to be doing fine in her foster home with a calm male
Weim. She gets along very well with all humans, including children, however her behavior with cats is not
known. Since she has separation anxiety, we are looking for a home for Abby with a person that is home much
of the day. Abby is up to date on her vaccines and   Her adoption fee is $250.  If you're interested in adopting
her, please submit an

amazing story.
JASON is a 9 year old male Weimaraner who had been in the shelter with a wounded lower leg. Shelter staff cared
for Jason and tended to his injuries while waiting for his owner to come forward. However, Jason’s owner did not
come for him. We had him neutered and placed him in one of our amazing foster homes for recovery. As a result of
meticulous care, Jason's leg wound is almost healed. He is getting along well with all of the dogs in his foster home
but he seems to prefer female dogs. His foster mom describes him as a very sweet boy who is easy to care for. He
enjoys going for walks, “helping” in the garden, and cuddling with family. Jason is a mellow and well-behaved boy
who does not require a lot of exercise. He just wants to be wherever the family is. He keeps a watchful eye over
the home and will let you know with a “woof” if strangers are approaching, but he quickly settles. He knows the
“sit” command and he loves his treats so he should easily catch on to more obedience skills. We do not know if
Jason has any experience with young children or cats so we are looking for a home for Jason without kitties or
young children. His vaccines are now up to date and he is ready for his new life. All he needs now is a home to call
his own where he can be the pampered boy he has always longed to be. His adoption fee is $100. If you are
interested in adopting Jason, please submit an
CHASE is a very young 1-2 year old neutered Weimaraner
Doberman mix who was found running around in a field near
Modesto.  Right from the start, he's been friendly, affectionate and
cooperative. He eagerly jumped into the car with the woman who
found him as though relieved.  He has been sociable with other
dogs and does not seem to be an Alpha dog. Chase has a beautiful
coat with faint Dobie markings, a cropped tail, and nice long legs.  
He's hoping for an active household of outdoor people who will
give him daily exercise.  Chase would also do well with an
obedience class and some leash work.  Because we do not know is
background, he needs a home without kitties or very young
children.  His adoption fee is $200.  If you are looking for a young,
active boy with lots of love to give, please fill out an
JOY is a 6 1/2 year old spayed female Weim, who came to us from an
owner going through some life changes.  She had acquired Joy as a young
puppy, but was not familiar with the breed and the requirements that
would benefit her most. Therefore, not much time was given towards
obedience training. There were no outings, and exercise was confined to
the back yard or dog run. She slept in the garage with the other dog in the

Since coming to NCWR, we have learned that Joy will probably do best as
an an only dog. She loves her humans so much and prefers not to share
them with other canines, yet she seems to do very well in doggie day care
with the other dogs. Joy will be a complete ''joy" for the family that would
love to include her, teach her and give her lots of fun exercise that she is
longing for. Joy is fostered in San Ramon, and her adoption fee is $200.00.  
If you are interested in adopting her, please submit an
