How Long Should I Expect to Wait?
Finding the New Family Member….
If you wait until you are ready to find your breeder, then you may find yourself settling for less on some level. We hear from frantic folks who at times try to pressure us into making their dream happen. Their lack of planning cannot dictate what we do, or how we do it. This frustrates some folks, and angers others. In America, we are used picking what we want off the shelf, and purchasing it. Sometimes we turn to the Internet, and find what we want. This is true when searching for the Weimaraner too; however, it is hard to know if you are getting an accurate picture of the pup, the breeder, or the situation. While it is nice to buy the dog down the street, that is not always ideal either. Nonetheless, sometimes it works out, and sometimes you take home a puppy you didn’t want because of the pull on your heartstrings.
Last week I sent someone to Jan, who sees other Weims in her class. I thought she might be able to help someone get a pup sooner. Here is what she wrote (and copied to us).
Hi- To be honest, I would normally not refer anyone to a Weimaraner breeder other than OwyheeStar! Having had Weimars for 38 years, and raising, training and showing them, I have dealt with a lot of other breeders over the years and had a lot of experiences. Some of them were not positive. Shela and Cliff are dear friends and wonderful, reputable breeders, and I have 100% confidence in referring potential puppy buyers to them.My “Willow”- UKC Best-In-Show and High-In-Trial Champion Sunstar Willow of OwyheeStar, AKC Canine Good Citizen, UKC Rally Obedience I- is the nicest-temperamented, soundest Weimar I have ever owned in all these years, and I will return to Shela and Cliff when I am ready for another Weimar (probably next year). I feel that a quality dog is worth the wait, and most of my dogs I have waited almost a year for.If you decide that this is the breed for you, I would encourage you to reserve a puppy from OwyheeStar and wait for the quality that you will be thankful for in the end.
