Priscilla and her Five Puppies 

Priscilla came from Kansas. She had been left in a backyard, tied to a tree. When she came to MHWR, she was one week away from delivering FIVE puppies! She settled in nicely at her foster home and had her pups exactly one week later. The puppies, mixed-breed, were all born happy and healthy and Priscilla was a perfect mother! All five pups and Momma-P found amazing adoptive homes! You can watch their progress here.

Osacar Wilde 

We have officially adopted the dog formally known as Oscar. Now Oscar wilde. He is adjusting very well. He, and our other weimaraner, Slate are best buddies now. They play together, love laying next to each other. We have put Oscar through a beginning ?boot camp? with a certified trainer. His behavior is better. There is room for improvement, we plan on continuing with his training. He is so sweet, loves being with our family. Plays with the kids well. He is curious about our cat, but not aggressive. Just wants to play. He had to have his toe amputated, due to an old infection, has healed almost totally. He makes us laugh daily. I know people say the dogs that are adopted are lucky to have ?forever homes?. We feel fortunate! We just love him, he has added so much to our lives!

Oct 5th, 2008 we officially adopted the puppy formally named Cheyenne. He is now known as Rocky, due to his love of chewing rocks! We are working on other fun things to chew on that better for the teeth and stomach! He is getting adjusted and becoming more curious. He had never played or been exercised before so we?ve been gradually introducing him to all these new fun things. Before we adopted Rocky, we had a Labrador, who recently pasted away. One evening our neighbors brought their new foster puppy (Cheyenne) outside for a visit. We were immediately drawn to him because of his sweet demeanor and gentleness. That night we researched Weimaraner?s to learn more about the breed and learned how well they do with families. The next day, we called our neighbors and ?puppy sat? for them. We fell in love with Rocky and realized our home wasn?t complete without another dog in it, so we decided to adopt him. A week later, we realized how much Rocky was meant to be a part of our lives. As I was working on our scrapbook, I found a note card that a friend given us when our former dog passed away. The unique thing about this was that the front the note card had a Weimaraner eating mangos on it. I got goosebumps and tears, Rocky was in the right place and we were meant to be his forever home!

Ellie is a wonderful sweet girl, and very intelligent. In 2 weeks she has learned my route, knowing when to be on which side of the pick-up and when she can stretch out and sleep. I can't pin point what drew me to her, but she is a perfect companion, and I'm so thankful to have her with me. Thank you for your wonderful mission of caring for the Weims!!

We just want you to know how much we love Baxter, who we adopted from the Mile High Weimaraner Rescue in March of 2008. He has had plenty of time to make himself comfortable in our home and with our family and we can tell he loves us, too! The irony is that we were looking for a two-year-old female. I had researched the breed and found a good rescue (that's you!). I had been reading biographies on your website for months of the female dogs available for adoption, looking for just the right dog for us. I hadn't even bothered to read the bios of the males.

Our family really missed having a dog, since our last dog had died several months earlier. I knew what we were looking for in terms of temperment and decided to take a look at the males. After I read Baxter's bio, I just knew he was our dog. Baxter is male and five years old but he is the perfect fit for our family. After we met him, we were all convinced. The moral of the story is that your perfect dog may be somewhat different than you thought! We wanted a female because we thought she would be more gentle with our young children than a male. Baxter has proven to be very loving and gentle - unless he feels you owe him some attention. Then he will lean against you until you play with him or he knocks you over! Baxter lays at our feet while I homeschool our girls. When we are done, he romps with us in the back yard. He loves all of his family members - and we all think he loves us best! He is sweet and affectionate and energetic without being too wild. He has his naughty moments - in our house, the sofa is a no dog zone - but we enjoy each other's company. Baxter really is the perfect dog for us and we adore him! Thank you so much for bringing us together!

Merry Christmas and much joy from the Bernard family!

Macey Gray 

Another great reason to adopt a Senior...
Hello MHWR,
Macey Gray is doing absolutely fabulous and we are still so happy to have her in our family. She has the funniest personality which still seems to be developing the more comfortable she becomes with us. The poor thing was shuffled so much in her life I think she is just now really becoming herself and trusting this really is her home. She's tried to push being the alpha a few times but another one of my girls is already the alpha so Macey got her butt kicked a couple of times. Nothing more serious than a little broken skin. She seems to have finally learned her place in the pecking order and is even starting to play with them occasionally (they play roughhouse with each other). Her favorite chair is one that is too small for her, which is funny to watch her fold herself into it.

She hikes and skis with us every weekend and is in great shape. She loves to fetch the ball (although we're working on reinforcing leave it so we don't fight to get the ball back). You'd never guess she is 8 years old except she sleeps more than the younger ones. Although we did a weeklong backpacking trip in August in the Wind Rivers and she stayed in Ouray with her grandpa & mimi because the trip was tough even on the two young ones. She got a hike every day with her mimi so she was happy. We don't regret adopting a senior at all! She is so funny when her dinner or breakfast is being prepared as she gets VERY excited and if it takes too long she starts barking. When we arrive home in the afternoon she also does this little bark/howl combo that is really funny. She does the same thing when we're getting ready to go run/hike/ski and it just makes us laugh out loud. Her saggy face makes us laugh much fun to squish up and give her kisses. Speaking of kisses she LOVES to give kisses. That trait didn't appear until after she'd been with us about 6 months. Now she's a kissing fool! I've attached a couple of pics from New Year's Eve day. One is of Macey on the ski track at Ironton (above Ouray) and the other is of us with all 3 girls. Macey is on the far right looking at us.

Cheers and Happy New Year,

Tucker (Formerly known as Gus) 

Tucker (aka Gus) came to us after our 13 year old male passed away (who was our rescue 12 years prior). We wanted a companion for our 12 year old female because she was lost without her partner. I perused the rescue site for the perfect male for her. We came across our Tucker. He was 1 (ish), looked just like our old guy Snickers and was so pathetically skinny. I knew this was our dog. We went to Petco to meet the MHWR crew and to check to see if Aspen and Tucker would get along. They did better than get along. They ignored each other. That was a better sign for us because we knew he would respect Aspen's age. They have been great companions ever since. He is a smart dog that could watch for squirrels for hours. Tucker is now joined by a Weim puppy and rolls around all day long with him in the grass while Aspen watches from a distance. We will always have this breed. We have Weims imprinted on our hearts forever, Especially rescue Weims.

Bella (Formerly known as Izzy) 

What a great year! - Bella has been fabulous - we are thrilled to have her! - She bonded instantly with our 4 1/2 year old male weim, Dash. Our trainer said that you'd never know they hadn't been together all their lives! The two dogs are a riot together - they provide lots of entertainment and companionship! Bella is a sweet girl - and in great health for a seven year old - thanks MHWR!

So Lucky....
We adopted Lucky almost a month ago. She is the sweetest dog and has filled our lives with so much love and joy. She is just what we needed to help our hearts heal the loss of our beloved Lab. Just the other day she chased away a stray Rottweiler and potentially saved me and my 2 year old daughter from being attacked. For that alone we are indebted to her. But even more so the love and faithfulness she has showed us in just the few weeks that we have had her. She loves to cuddle, snuggle, or just have a hand on her will do. She really is like Velcro and we don't mind one bit. She has found her forever home here with us-we adore her! I want to do everything I can to keep her healthy and thriving. We go for walks, runs, and parks. She just loves to be with us... as we love being with her.

Thank you for this amazing Rescue. Lucky rescued me for the sadness in my heart from losing our Lab just before Christmas. We are the Lucky ones... blessed...

Scooby is a wonderful addition to our family. He is our first Weimaraner and I can't imagine what took us so long. He is incredibly affectionate and a true velcro dog loving his time with his people. Scooby immediately attached to me but has recently gravitated towards Sherry and now seems equally attached to us both. He loves the car! We took him on vacation with us to Texas after having him only a week. When returning, we ran into a blizzard and were stranded in Clayton, NM for two days. While there, Scooby stole the hearts of everybody staying at the hotel as he does wherever we go. Scooby loves his people as much as we love him. He is a wonderful dog and a great addition to our family. I want to thank you for your insight and concern in matching Scooby up with us. I was very impressed with Mile High Weimaraner Club's attention in insuring the perfect match for us and Scooby.
