Twain's family purchased him from a breeder in Kentucky, but almost immediately realized that they had made a mistake
& underestimated the amount of time needed to raise a puppy. But Twain's timing was impeccable as his new family lost
their senior Weimaraner boy just 2 weeks before Twain needed a home. He couldn't have chosen a more perfect home
than the one in a quiet, rural mountain neighborhood in Ben Lomond, complete with a river across the road from their
home. Twain has two human playmates & a Mom & Dad who knows what is needed to raise a great dog from puppyhood!
They will have wonderful family time hiking, vacationing at the Russian River several times a year, going to the dog park &
of course, plenty of snuggle time!
Sweet Rocky is in his Furever Home & Rocky & his new Mom & Dad couldn't be happier! Rocky's owner had moved & left
him in her sister's care, until she surrendered Rocky to us. But Rocky had suffered significant neglect & came to us with a
mass & ruptured ear drums from severe & prolonged ear infections. Rocky's new Mom, an experienced WeimMomm,
wanted a companion to keep her company while she works from home, so Rocky will have lots of companionship. Rocky
has already become Mom's shadow & never lets her out of his sight! Mom says Rocky has a stubborn streak & is really
good at letting her know what his demands are. Rocky's new BF is 14 month old Murphy, the Chocolate Lab, who belongs
to his new Grandma. Their properties connect so, Rocky & Murphy enjoy romping together on their acreage in Las Vegas!
Rookie needed too much attention from his previous family who were trying to juggle his needs with that of their 5
children. Now, Rookie has the home that all Weimaraners dream about! His new home is on acreage in Salinas with his
new dad, stay-at-home mom & lots of new playmates! Rookie now lives with Weimaraner girls, Macy 12 years old & Lucy 5
years old, but his new best friend is the 6 year old Vizsla girl, Reva! Rookie & his girls follow mom while she does her ranch
chores including feeding the 3 resident horses. Rookie & girls will socialize with other dogs at the beach, accompany mom
on shopping trips, go on trail rides & visit family. Rookie will even train to compete in Rally Obedience! With all of that
activity, Rookie is a happy boy!
Cairo was found as an injured stray but when his family was found, they surrendered him to the shelter.
Unfortunately, Cairo's problems didn't end there. Further Vet examination uncovered a Grade 4 heart murmur & an
enlarged left heart. But becasue of Cairo's super sweet nature, he was adopted by a family with a heart of gold! Mom says
he is a very good boy, goofy & very affectionate! He & new playmate, 9 year old Weimaraner girl Misty May are a lot alike
& are very "chatty" with each other! Cairo & Misty May will go on daily hikes & walks in their Dublin neighborhood, car
rides & to the beach. Mom says they LOVE him!
Rose's previous owner didn’t have the time to devote to her but since Rose's new parents lives revolve around taking care
of 2 1/2 year-old Weimaraner boy, Rapha, they were prepared to dote on Rose as well. Rapha & Rose enjoy twice daily
romps at the river near their Fair Oaks home & home cooked meals. Rose is a water baby so Rose & Rapha enjoy splashing
& swimming in their private pool, too! Rose will have a busy lifestyle accompanying Mom & Dad on kayaking trips & even
competing in FastCAT, timed 100 yard doggy dash! Evenings are reserved for playtime with lots of time left over for
snuggling with Mom & Dad.
The foster home for Ariel & Sebastian has decided to keep them both.
Claudius was purchased from a breeder in Idaho, but his owner's health issues prevented her from being able to exercise
him & he spent much of the day in a crate. But Claudius has a great life now with his new playmate & housemate Gracie, a
5 year old Vizsla girl. Claudius & Gracie keep their Work-from-Home Mom company all day & keep their 3 human
playmates busy! Aside from their daily walks & romps, the family will enjoy hiking & visiting the Dog Parks in their
Livermore neighborhood. On weekends the family will take trips to the lake & go camping in the mountains!
6 month old puppies, Jack & Jill were acquired by NCWR last Christmas after they were confiscated from an animal neglect
situation. They were thin, had mange & tested positive for tick borne diseases. Guardian Angels in the form of a Foster
Family, stepped up to care for Jack, but soon after he arrived at his new foster home, he started exhibiting more
complications from the tick borne disease. Walking became very difficult & he fell often. After many vet visits & expensive
tests, it was determined that Jack had a rare inflammation in the spine. With ongoing drug therapy & thanks to his very
dedicated foster home, he was able to live like a young Weimaraner should. His Foster Family decided that they would
miss his "smiling face " if he left & decided to make Jack a permanent member of their household.
His Foster Mom reports that, “Jack looks good & feels really good. He still gets up from laying down a little slow & the right
back leg is a little weaker but it’s so much better & we're so very happy”. So Jack will have a happy life in Elk Grove with
Dad & Work-from-Home Mom. Their neighborhood has many walking & running paths & lakes & Jack helps Mom walk his
two human playmates to & from school. Jack is a true family dog!
There is a Guardian Angel for every Rescue Dog & Pumpkin found hers! Pumpkin had been in her home since she was a
puppy but when her owner recently passed away she went to live with another family member who kept her in the
backyard. Pumpkin was having none of that & protested by whining! Sweet & pretty 11 year old Pumpkin has already
settled in nicely & has claimed her couch! Pumpkin's Dad works from home, so she will have plenty of attention, snuggle &
couch time. Pumpkin & family will enjoy daily walks & weekend hikes near their Livermore home. Mom says that they are
very happy to have her!
Trey was bought as a puppy from a breeder in Utah. But with a toddler & another baby on the way, there was no time to
give Trey the attention & training he needed. But NCWR found Trey a fabulous family who have been planning & doing the
research for a new family member for a long time! Mom works from home, so Trey's days of needing more attention are in
the past! One of Trey's human playmates has done plenty of her own research & has been helping her Veterinarian Uncle
care for his patients as well as helping their neighbors take care of their dogs. She first learned about Weimaraners when
her Dad showed her a YouTube video about the “25 Smartest Dog Breeds Ever”. The whole family was hooked after that &
especially love that Weimaraners always follow their people around the house!
The family has a lot of activities planned for Trey, playing in the dog-friendly parks in their Palo Alto neighborhood, hiking
in nearby nature reserves & dog-friendly trails, going to nearby cafes & restaurants, learning tricks, going shopping for
toys, visiting the Farmers Market & going on doggy play dates! Much to the kid's delight, Trey went home just in time to
play dress up for Halloween! Dad says that Trey is friendly, playful & very smart. He has already advanced in his Puppy
Class! Trey likes to lay at Dad's feet while he works in his office. When Trey is ready, he will accompany Dad to work at his
Dog Friendly workplace!
Sofie was a stray, but is now the adored "daughter" of a loving Mom & Dad & playmate to their 2 year old Weimaraner
boy, Thomas! Thomas & Sofie have perfect days romping on the family's 5 acres Olive Ranch in Corning. After their
morning run, they enjoy home cooked meals by Mom & then snuggle time together. Mom says Sofie & Thomas are
inseparable & that Sofie is super smart & super sweet! Sofie & Thomas will also enjoy camping trips & going
to the coast!
Puppy Vinny was unceremoniously dumped in a Stockton neighborhood & wandered around until he was found by
neighbors who were very familiar with Weimaraners. Vinny's new Dad was looking for a rescue dog that he could help, so
this was a perfect match! Vinny & his new playmate, 5 year old Weimaraner girl, Sierra love playing together already &
going for exercise in their Modesto neighborhood.
|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 NOSE PRINT
|It's here! The 2019 NCWR Calendar!
Give a holiday gift that continues to
give to our gray kids.
