The Weimaraner Club of Great Britain Rescue & Rehoming Service has a long and successful history and is the only Weimaraner breed club to offer this service. The service is self financing

Why dogs come into rescue

  1. The new owners have not been advised of the true needs of a Weimaraner by the breeder and are unable cope
  2. Change of circumstance. Loss of a family home, loss of financial stability, break-up of a marriage, ill health or death of an owner, often result in a dog being placed for rehoming with rescue.
  3. A new baby joining the family and the owners do not have time to exercise the dog or pressure is put on them to rehome the dog for health reasons
  4. Work patterns have changed and the dog is being left all day and not coping and is becoming destructive or barking constantly
  5. A dog once it has passed the puppy stage is now pushing for dominance, either with its owner or other dogs in the pack or outside when being exercised
  6. The owners have been sold siblings and the dogs are fighting. This can also occur in dogs of a similar age range and sex.

How we re-home your dog

  1. We arrange a home visit to assess the dog within the home environment where possible
  2. We discuss the potential homes with you and put the new home in touch with you
  3. The decision to rehome is always up to the owner

Adopting a dog

  1. We arrange a home visit by a club member and their dog to meet all the family and any other family pets. They assess your family requirement, home environment and future ambitions (working, agility or a fireside companion). If you have never owned a Weimaraner then please read ‘Living with a Weimaraner’
  2. We do from time to time have dogs in kennels if the owners are no longer able to keep the animal until it can be rehomed.
  3. When a suitable dog has been found we will discuss the dog with you
  4. You will be asked to sign an Adoption form and if at anytime you cannot keep the dog Rescue must be notified and the dog returned to us for rehoming. The dog remains the property of the WCGB for the remainder of its lifetime.
  5. Rehomed dogs must not be bred from and if not already neutered you will be required to do this.
  6. Third party insurance taken out
  7. The Dogs in Need page shows the current dogs looking for homes but this is not always up to date due to the frequency of dogs coming in for rehoming.
  8. PLEASE ONLY CONTACT ONE CO-ORDINATOR IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO REHOME.
  9. A DONATION is required and the money goes towards cost of kennelling dogs when necessary and veterinary fees whilst in our care

 Houston 6yr & Draco 3yrs

Both dogs are castrated and are being rehomed as their owner has a young baby and finding it difficult to exercise the dogs as they have become protective of her and the baby when out walking. This is shown by Houston alert barking & Draco following suit. They are not aggressive and are good with other dogs when off lead... Both dogs are excellent with the toddler in the house They are friendly & affectionate in the house. They can be left up to 3 hours. Both dogs sleep downstairs.

They would probably be better being rehomed separately as Draco can be dominant with Houston.

Houston sweet dog who likes a cuddle and whilst loving his walks would probably be great with someone where he is not too in a high lifestyle ie, not a runner. mountain biker or hill walker.

Draco willing to please and is used to running behind the husband's mountain bike when he is at home. He needs an active life with an experienced owner who will give him a role in life. He will open cupboard etc in the kitchen. He has been bitten by a Chihuahua which he picked up but did not harm the dog. He needs to be trained to walk on the lead.  Draco would suit an experienced home with an older bitch as he has always had the company of another dog.

Health survey 2019

The WCGB is carrying out a new health survey.

This time the Club is looking at how long Weimaraners live and the cause of death. The survey is quick and easy to complete so please take a few minutes to enter the details of your Weimaraners that have passed away. You can repeat the survey multiple times to enter the details of all the Weimaraners you or your family have owned, right back to the 1950s.

The survey can be found below. If you find the text a bit small, please follow this link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/weimaranersurvey to the survey on SurveyMonkey.
