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 10 years old. Weimaraners can be too
rambunctious for young children.

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

Our perfect rescue home is one where the dog will have little or no alone time, good daily exercise and Weimaraner experience.  If your dog will be alone more than a minimal amount of time, we will not place a dog with you.

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

Welcome Han Solo to Nor Cal Weim Rescue! We are looking for a foster for this handsome and sweet four-year-old boy, who is almost totally blind. We will be getting him to a specialist to see if there is anything that can be done to restore any part of his vision. An initial vet visit indicates that he might have cataracts, so next step is to meet with an ophthalmologist. We need a home that has no young kids and no pool unless fenced. He is working on learning stairs and knows some basic commands. Most importantly, we would like to find a home that has a calm, patient, friendly pup who can help be a companion to Hans. He doesn’t exhibit any shyness, fear, or timidity, rather he is an enthusiastic guy who likes to be active with you by going for a walk or hike, and then hang out ever so close to you the rest of the time. Up until now, Han has been kept as an outdoor dog; so, he will need some practice with house breaking. Blind dogs create a mental map of their world to help them navigate it. Once learned they are quite capable and often fool people into thinking they are sighted.  If you have some time to spend with this fun boy and show him the ropes on how to be a member of a family, please fill out an application.
