Puppy Talk

~ With Cliff and Shela

Thank you for participating in yesterday’s discussion as to whether a second Weimaraner is a smart decision or not. Everyone’s experience is going to be different. Now, onto the most pressing question asked–When will you have puppies born?

There are options for a breeder to determine if a female is pregnant before the whelp. These include ultrasound, sonogram, and X-ray, but as many experienced breeders can attest, it doesn’t guarantee a full-term life birth. For this and other reasons (such as its practicality), we opt to let nature take its course. Having been contacted regularly by people who waited for months and sometimes more than a year to get a pup from another breeder only to have the bitch not produce, we know how disappointing and devastating it can be. While these are standard practices for some breeders, there are other unknowns, too. We typically have a Waitlist–sometimes, even with a Waitlist, we can’t guess what people will do. You might come along at the right moment when no one on the list is ready, or we didn’t have what they wanted born. Below is a segment from our Page titled ‘Current Availability.’ To read the full article, please click on the link.

Thinking of a Weimaraner puppy?!?

We are adding names to the waitlist–for potential early 2021 possibilities. We cannot predict the availability for several reasons–

  1. We don’t know if a mating will produce a litter.
  2. We cannot guess how many pups might be in the litter.
  3. We are not always able to predict coat color, and most certainly we cannot guess the sex of the pups that are going to be born.
  4. We cannot guess what the people on the Wait List will do–some may not be ready when we get pups. Others might opt to change their preferences. We allow people to do.

To start the process contact Shela (via Email–shela@owyheestar.com) and let her know you wish to fill out the application.

Check with us–get your application in and follow up with a deposit to lock in a place on the Wait List. You must request the application via Email (shela@owyheestar.com).

We look forward to hearing from you.

Our screening process is important to us. We want to make sure every puppy gets to the best possible placement. The good news is the right choice for the pup, is also going to be a good one for you. We do not take this process lightly. So if you want to bring home an OwyheeStar Weim, the best approach is to complete the application process. Our screening process must be completed to discuss availability in detail. Thank you for understanding. You can get more information above on the FAQs page–click here to access that page.

We have mentioned the application several times. The first step is always to complete our application. The OwyheeStar application is an online application, and it will come as an invite from our primary website (www.owyheestar.com). To get the invite, please write Shela (shela@owyheestar.com) a brief inquiry, and express the desire to complete the application.

The approved application along with a small deposit will lock in a place on the OwyheeStar Waiting List.  Yes, to answer your question, the deposit applies to the cost of the puppy.
