Weimaraners are not for everyone and our dogs are definitely not perfect. Please research the breed BEFORE applying. It is not first come, first served. We have a long list of approved applicants waiting to be matched with a dog. Your chances of having a dog in a week or two will not happen.
There are a variety of situations to consider before adopting a life-long friend. It can happen to the best of us. You see a posting on Facebook of a gorgeous Weim puppy and the next thing you know, you're walking down the aisles at Chow Hound.
If you're like most of us, falling in love with a Weimaraner is easy. And no wonder! Sharing your home with a four-legged friend can be one of life's greatest joys. Dogs give us unconditional loyalty and acceptance, provide constant companionship, and even help relieve stress after a hard day's work.
BUT….adopting a dog is a big decision. They require lots of time, exercise, patience, money, and commitment—for 12 to 15 years in many cases. You really need to think before you adopt.
The fact that you're thinking about adopting a Weimaraner from GLWR means you're a responsible and caring person. But before you make that decision, ask yourself?
