Frida

~Doing Great in Southern Oregon

Come on–we don’t need another snapshot.

Frida has adjusted wonderfully to life here in Southern Oregon. She gets either a walk in the forest or a playdate at the dog park on a daily basis, plenty of dropped food from our 3 kids (seems to be mostly broccoli or other veggies!), and snuggles when she can be bothered to sit still. We adore her and are so happy to have found you guys! 

I wanted to ask you what your opinion on spay timing is. Our vet is pretty invested in early spaying because of his work with various human societies and a desire for no unplanned puppies. While we VERY much do not want/need any unplanned puppies, we weren’t sure if spaying before her first heat was a good idea. Our puppy school teachers both recommend waiting until after adolescence so that Frida would benefit from hormones during her growth. So, I thought I’d check with you guys as actual Weimaraner experts! 

I have a couple of new pictures of Frida to share with you – as I said, she can be difficult to capture in a still moment! (Your initial assessment of her “being into herself” has proven to be pretty accurate HA!) I also included her “graduation” certificate from puppy school.

Breeder Comment

Congratulations on earning a Puppy Certificate. We are exceedingly happy to hear that things are going well.

As you know – the experts all have their ideas—and those working with rescue and shelters lean toward the fact of preventing the unwanted pregnancy—like you, we agree, but there is the balancing thought that those hormones play an essential role in growth. The decision is a personal one—hormones can also fuel aggressive behaviors–especially in males, but each pup is unique.  https://owyheestarweimaranersnews.com/2018/10/29/to-wait-or-not/
