Sally - Application process on HOLD

Introducing Miss Sally!  She is a 10 year-old, 50lb ball of Weimaraner love.  Her owners describe her as very cuddly and sweet and one of the most beautiful dogs they have ever seen. She is intensely loyal and wants to be with her people all the time. She loves kisses on her nose and having her face and belly rubbed. She is also very playful (especially for her age) and loves hiking, swimming, and chasing squirrels. She is fearful of other dogs but responds well to leash training and will come right away when called off leash. She loves bones and peanut butter treats. She prefers her evenings (and pretty much anytime) snuggled up on top of her people and seems to think that she is a little puppy instead of a big old dog. She wiggles around in the grass when she is happy.


Sally finds herself in a small home where there are two small children and one on the way.  While she does love the kids they tend to make her nervous or can startle her.  She has always had some nervous and anxious behavior but the little ones seem to have exacerbated it.  Her owners love her dearly and are devastated that they have to re-home her but know this is what is best for Sally. 


Sally does have separation anxiety so she needs to be in a home where the owners are retired or work from home and are experienced Weim owners.  She needs a home with no children and people who are committed to getting her the exercise she needs to calm her anxieties.  While another dog is not a must it might just be what Sally needs.  This dog would have to be confident and help show her that there is no need to be nervous of the dishwasher for example.  


Sally is completely house trained. She knows sit, stay, lay down, come and heel. She loves to play fetch. In fact, she has mastered the art of patiently sitting and waiting until she is instructed to go get the ball.  She does great in the car but will sometimes want to try and ride shot gun.  She does not do well with cats.


If you are looking for a sweet girl who just wants to spend all her time with you and you think you would be the right fit for Sally please submit an application.
