Here are the basics for being a responsible Weimaraner owner:
- a lifestyle that allows you to spend a lot of time with your dog
- a home that you feel comfortable letting a dog live inside with you
- a fully fenced, dog proof yard of reasonable size (no fence= no dog 90% of the time)
- access to inside heated and dry shelter in the winter
- access to a cool place in the summer
- a budget that can afford quality dog food and an occasional vet emergency
- a vehicle that you can safely use to transport your dog
- Any person being considered to adopt a dog must be able to physically meet that dog prior to adoption
- We do not place dogs that are not spayed or neutered (some caveats apply).
- We do not place dogs in homes where they have to live outside.
- We do not place dogs in homes where they are expected to be in a dog house, chained, or live in a kennel.
- We do not place dogs in homes with unsecured yards (very few exceptions apply).
- We audition applicants for dogs, not dogs for applicants.
> It is our mission to find the best overall home for each dog in our care. Sometimes this means good homes will lose out on a dog to a great home that better suits the needs of the dog in question.
- We accept applications until we feel there is an adequate pool
- Applicants are sorted on their suitability to meet the specific needs of the dog in question (we want success for the dog)
^^^THIS IS DONE ENTIRELY BASED UPON THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN YOUR APPLICATION, BE THOROUGH!
- The theoretical best fit for the dog is contacted for a phone interview
- An in person meet and greet is scheduled between the applicant (and any existing dogs) with the adoptive dog
- A home inspection is performed to verify what was shared in the application
- A 'Placement Contract' (inclusive of fee) is signed prior to taking ownership
All dogs have an associated $400 adoption fee unless otherwise noted or arranged
This fee helps cover vet care such as wellness checks, spays/neuters, biopsies, teeth cleaning, and much more.
If you submit an adoption application without listing a specific dog for whom you would like to be considered to adopt, you MUST email us when a dog gets listed for which you wish to have your application considered.
We do not search and pull prior applications unless directed to do so!
