It is Gut-wrenching on so many Levels
No one goes into this with the idea that they won’t succeed with the puppy. Despite that fact, every year there are too many Weimaraners who see a shelter, or who are turned into a rescue organization. Chances are these folks tried to pawn-off there no longer tiny pup on friends, family, or listed them on Craig’s List. Our clients have to agree to return them to us. That is enough said about our policy. The plight of the Weimaraner is well known. Recent headlines about Pollo who was found beaten and abused in Florida are nothing short of gut-wrenching. It leaves a person speechless. Who can say for sure why this kind of thing happened. We can paint any number of scenarios that would lead to such a despicable act; a family member who was frustrated because the Weimaraner kept destroying things. Someone who is merely mentally crazy–who harms animals. A person who got tired of the work involved in raising the Weimaraner. A group of kids that found the dog, and thought it funny to do harm. The list of possibilities are many. Regardless, it happened. This is yet another reason that people who raise this breed, and sell them to anyone who waves money their direction are not doing the Weimaraner any favor. Therefore, when a dog breeder asks questions you don’t understand, they have a different agenda. Their responsibility, and moral obligation is to the puppy they have raised.
Responsible Breeders; Responsible Ownership
A Second Chance
Not everyone is suited to do rescue. Some people seek it out thinking they can avoid the stuff-of-puppy training. Taking home the older Weimaraner requires some effort, planning, and that you do a lot of puppy-stuff with them. They must earn their freedom, and you must allow the relationship to form. This takes time, patience, and a little knack. For those that can help, we send you kudos. For those that want the puppy-experience, please realize that you are making a commitment. Raising the Weimaraner puppy is going to take a lot of work; you are not taking them home to be done with the basics within 3-4 months. This is a journey on which you embark together. It remains to see what the two of you can become.
