Bruno was bored in his back yard & kept escaping. His owner grew weary of picking Bruno up from Animal Control
so he surrendered Bruno to NCWR. Now Bruno has a playmate, Maya, rescued from NCWR in 2009. Bruno & Maya
will be busy running with Mom & Dad in Santa Rosa. Mom says Bruno is a fine addition to their family!

Sam & his BFF, Border Collie, Maggie were taken to the shelter by their owner who claimed he could no longer care
for them. Sam & Maggie had been together since they were young & the shelter staff felt that Sam & Maggie were a
bonded pair that needed to stay together. That meant that NCWR needed a very special adopter & then he
appeared! Sam & Maggie's new Dad was looking for a running partner & a buddy for Petey, the 10 pound
Patterdale Terrier. He got more than he bargained for when he adopted Maggie in the package deal! Maggie is
sweet as can be & Sam & Petey are happy to let her be Queen! NCWR is so happy to have Sam & Maggie start their
new life in Woodland!

Boomer came into rescue when his owner had to have surgery & couldn't care for him, so he was surrendered to a
shelter. This was unfortunate for this sweet boy as he had a history of seizures, but Boomer was surrendered with
no medication! NCWR placed him, but he was returned after 3 years because he grew tired of traveling in the RV
with his Dad. Fast forward to today & Boomer has a Furever Family in Bakersfield, complete with Lily, a beautiful
blue Weimaraner girl! Boomer is a super sweet boy who loves to give out kisses & play fetch. Boomer is very
talented & used to perform tricks at a nursing home!

Remi was acquired as a puppy, but had a hard time adjusting to life with children in the growing family. Remi's new
Mom says they love her already & Remi is already queen of the house. Mom says Remi is well behaved, a beauty &
very smart.  He new roommate is a 40 year old parrot! Remi will enjoy being an adored "only child", going
everywhere with mom & dad, taking walks around their Davis neighborhood & eating mom's home-cooked meals!

Kona Blue was found as a stray & must have been on the streets for some time as his pads were blistered & raw. He
is now a pampered pet with his stay-at-home mom & new family! Kona Blue's new home in Auburn is surrounded
by green belts, with canyon trails nearby & a lot of open space for exploratory journeys! Kona Blue will be a happy
dog hunting & retrieving pheasants with Dad & attending obedience classes with Mom!

Faline's adoption is a real Cinderella story! Faline's owner bought her from a backyard breeder to rescue her from
the deplorable conditions she found her in. Unfortunately, the damage of a poorly socialized upbringing had
already taken it's toll & Faline could not adapt to family life. But Faline has fallen into the lap of luxury in her new
posh, stylish home in St. Helena with one of NCWR's most valuable past adopters & foster who enjoys cooking for
her! Mom says Faline is blossoming more & more every day. Faline will enjoy accompanying Mom on her 3-7 mile
power walks several times a week.  

Tucker's previous owner moved to a new home where large dogs were not welcome, but he was welcomed with
open arms by his Foster Mom who had just lost her Weim boy. Tucker is a lucky boy now, as Mom works from
home. Mom & Tucker are inseparable! Tucker will have daily walks & beach romps, as their home is a short walk
from the beach in San Francisco.

Three year old Cheyenne had been with her family since she was a puppy, but lately was not coexisting well with
her housemate.  Bobby was a sweet, young stray who had been adopted out & returned to the shelter. Now
Cheyenne & Bobby have hit the Rescue Jackpot with one of NCWR's longest serving volunteers! Cheyenne & Bobby
hunt for birds with Dad while Cheyenne keeps Mom company!

Puppy, Finn (AKA Otis), was surrendered to the shelter with 2 broken bones in his left rear leg that had been
untreated for 3 weeks! This poor baby was terribly frightened & in great pain. Thankfully, NCWR was able to
rescue him & place him in an amazing Foster Home while he recuperated from a successful surgery. Dozens of
NCWR supporters donated from $10 to $500 to pay for his expensive surgery.  Finn's new Mom, who is a friend of
Finn's Foster Mom, has been instrumental in Finn's recovery & socialization. Having recently lost her Weimaraner
girl Annie, at almost 16 years old, she has a lot of love to give Finn. Finn's new Mom works from home, so Finn &
Mom will be inseparable! They will enjoy daily hikes near their Livermore home, visit friends, go to the beach &
take day trips. Finn even visited a local winery!  Mom is dedicated to working on Finn's obedience skills. & they be
be active in NCWR activities. Look for Finn at the 14th Annual Weim Country Gala & Weim Walks!

Thora & brother Popeye are very unique puppies, as they have “Hoppers”, a non- progressive, non-painful disorder
which causes them to hop when they run. That doesn't slow Thora down at all & she is as fast as can be! Thora is a
true Snow Bunny now that her home is in Kirkwood! Dad says she loved her first adventure in the snow, diving into
it & eating it! She has already had her 1st chairlift ride! This outdoorsy puppy is a natural swimmer, too & she will
have great times at the nearby beautiful streams & lakes. Dad says Thora will have a long & happy life being a
mountain pup!

FRIDA  is a 5.5 y/o female Weim who needs a home to call her own. She was bought by a
couple as a puppy, who realized they could not give Frida the exercise and training she
needed. They gave her to a friend who had no Weimaraner experience, and were also
unprepared to give her the time and attention she needed. Frida has been in a foster home
since she was surrendered, where she learned to use the doggy door and acquired lots of
obedience skills. She knows sit, lay down, wait, come and shake and also does great on leash.
She loves to go for car rides and is a wonderful passenger.  She has been doing well with the
children in her foster home (ages 8 and 11). Frida is a little over weight, but those extra
pounds will come off quickly. So, what Frida needs is someone that will give her the attention,
exercise and love she needs. She does well with other dogs in the home, but with a high prey
drive, no cats! If you are willing to pour your love and attention into Frida, she will reward
you with her loyal companionship she's been anxious to share. She is fostered in Hayward,
and her adoption fee is $250.00.  If you're interested in Frida, please submit an

BONNIE BLUE is a 4 year old, lovely blue Weimaraner with a docked tail and
dewclaws removed.  She was found as a stray in the town of Salinas, CA where she
received rave reviews from everyone at the shelter and easily passed our
evaluation even though she pretended not to understand basic commands.  As soon
as she was out of there, Bonnie Blue started acting like herself and quickly became
attached to transporters and now her foster Dad.  He says Bonnie is probably the
nicest foster dog he's had yet.  She gets along famously with other dogs, knows basic
commands, and walks on a leash with a little pulling. She is not shy about showing
her affection and asking for yours.   Bonnie will do best in a home where someone is
around most of the time and with another dog for a friend.  She has not been tested
around cats or children under 5. Bonnie Blue is current on all her vaccines and will
be ready for a forever home soon.  She is currently located in Oakland.  Her adoption
fee is $300.  If you're interested in adopting her, please submit an
ABBY is a 5 year old female Weimaraner, possibly a Weim/Lab mix, however she resembles a Weim
more than anything. 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

DUDLEY is an approximately 6 year old neutered male.  He is possibly a
Weimaraner/doberman mix but could also be a Weimaraner with the
rare gene we call The Mark of the Hound which appears every so often,
especially near the area where Dudley was found as a stray.  He also has a
pronounced under-bite which causes his lower canine to protrude.  This
unique looking boy is as sweet as can be and asks for affection by leaning
in.  Dudley is hard to resist with his loving nature and easy going attitude.  
He got along well with the large dog he was kenneled with but we don't
know anything about his exposure to small children or cats, so we are
looking for a home without kitties or children under 7.  Dudley is up to
date on all his vaccinations.  If you are looking for a sweetheart and don't
mind a little imperfection, then Dudley will be forever grateful if you take
him home.  His adoption fee is $200.  If you're interested in adopting him,

MUGZY is a 7 year old affectionate, mellow, well-mannered boy. He is the perfect mix
of puppy and grown up. He walks politely on leash ignoring distractions and staying
calmly by your side, waits patiently at meal time and will hand you his paws to have
his nails trimmed. He also wiggles excitedly when you come home, plays tug of war
and chase like a puppy.  He loves to go romping around the house and backyard with
the 10 month old and 3 year old Weim in his foster home.

Mugzy alerts and barks once or twice when people approach the house but he quickly
stops. . He has an alpha dog personality and makes his boundaries known. He would
do best in a home with older children who are dog savvy and able to respect his
boundaries. He also shows minor separation anxiety in his foster home. He whines a
bit when he can tell the humans are getting ready to go somewhere but does not bark
or cause any damage. Mugzy has a history of back pain and has some pain medication
to take on an as needed basis. He currently has some weight to lose and is slimming
down through daily walks which should help reduce any back pain flare ups. He is
fostered in Santa Rosa, and his adoption fee is $200.00.  If you're interested in
adopting him, please submit an
