Elijah Blue 

Dave and I would like to once again thank you and MHWR for allowing us to adopt Eli! He has become a true friend to Dave and I and sibling to Sierra. He loves to go to the dog park and run or just sit and chill in the backyard wading pool! He get's very excited and runs to greet Daddy every night! We did have a rather meaningless question to ask though. In his profile it said he knew 10 basic commands. We know he does sit and the hand signal to acheive that but we can't figure out what the other commands are. We are working with our trainer to brush up on some of the basics but since we received this email, I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!

"Bode" aka "Bo" formerly "Danny" 

Thanks to the volunteers who saved me, fed me, loved me, and drove me to Colorado well into the wee hours of the night. My sister, Rosie and I really enjoyed the whole bag of dog food we got on the trip up! lol Thanks for the long application process, the home visit, the phone interview, recommending raw food!, the website weim 101 and the $250 adoption fee all these measures help to ensure me and all my fellow rescuees find good homes. This allows me to sleep good at night...or during the day...hmmm...or during my dozen or so naps on the front porch, the sofa, in my master's bed and my least fav spot my doggie bed.

My new family, includes humans, two other weims, and a 10 month old aussie who thinks we're her "herd" She can be annoying at times as she runs circles around us, but overall she's cute and fun to play with. One of my new weim brothers is named "groochy pants" he's older and well I think hes retired from playing and just wants to sleep all day so I've learned that its best to let him rest. The other weim is fun to hang out with. All together we explore our 15 acre wooded farm, although most of our time is spent hanging out near our house and chewing on bones or deer antlers (they have lots of yummy stuff inside of them!). Its kinda like going to camp, although the food is way better, my human mom feeds us great, she's a nutritionist turned chicken farmer we enjoy fresh raw chickens and well other stuff I cant remember. Well, It's past my 8th nap time so goodbye for now.

Drooly Kisses, Bode

Dear folks at the Weim Rescue, Thanks for hooking us up with Remy. She was surrendered because she killed a Jack Russell Terrier that she lived with. The folks that gave her up didn't know what they had. She lives with Sadie, a Lab mix rescue (4yrs.), Maggie, a Sr. (12yr.) yellow Lab and us. She is my "supervisor" dog. She watches every move my 6yr. old grandson makes. We also call her Goofy, as she does the most amazing things! We took her with us when we went to Ariz. this last spring, after having her only a few months (we got her in Nov.,2009). She's turned out to be a great traveller. She discovered lizards and couldn't quite figure out how they could just disappear. I took her to the Colo. Dressage show this Aug. in Parker and she met all kinds and sizes of dogs, kids and horses. She had no problem with any of them. She learned to just hang out in a golf cart while I ran scores for the show and was a hit with everyone she met. She was especially fond of a two year old girl who was eating nachos. She assisted by cleaning up a giggiling face as well as hands while Grandma and Grandpa watched. We took a show horse to Park City, Ut. and she was so quiet, in the backseat, I had to check to see if she was still breathing. She is just a love. We took her on a horse pack trip in Sept. and she carried her own food in a doggie pack. Most dogs I have taught to do this, have run through water and bushes, making a mess of the contents of the packs. Remy dutifully followed behind the horses and never veered off the trail. Only after the packs were removed, did she run and play. Totally amazing! Thanks so much for the wonderful companion. We love her dearly.

Love, Remy's Family

Allison AKA Allie 

When Allison first came to us she was shy and timid around new people. We could tell that she had been through a bit of a past. Yet, from the beginning, she has been a sweetie who has always enjoyed the pleasures of a friendly hand and a nice belly rub.

Allison, who we now call "Allie", has made tremendous progress in the time we have spend with her. For instance, when we first met Allie she detested water (we think she was never really exposed to it). The first time she put her one of her paws into a pool of water, she jumped back in disgust. However, with much patience and encouragement, she now successfully takes baths?without too much of a fuss.

Allie has also made a lot of progress in the art of being a dog. At first, Allie was so shy she would lie down for hours in a spot she felt at ease. She wouldn't bark, she was unusually obedient, and all she seemed to desire was love and affection. Now that Allie is a member of our family and feels completely at home, she has found her voice (which she uses moderately), has discovered the joys of romping around, and likes to challenge our rules every now and then (even though she's not successful in this aspect). She has also discovered a few hobbies, including: chasing and eating ice cubes, lying on a sunny porch, and playing with her Kong. Current Status: 100% Adorable Dog.

We are so incredibly happy that Allie came into our lives. She has been with us for three months and has already made a tremendous impact on us. We are happy we made the decision to adopt from the Mile High Weimaraner Rescue. It has been a rewarding and positive turn of event's promising years of delightful experiences to be had with our new friend, Allie.

Hank (The Tank) 

I wanted to give you an update on Hank (we shortened it for home use). We have had Hank for about a year now and our lives are better for it. My wife, Trena, and I love him to death. He makes everyday an adventure and makes us smile and laugh. He is still a high energy pup, but we think he is finally starting to relax and settle into his new home. He very much likes to be outside in the winter. Hank has met all of our extended family already, and he was front and center at our wedding in September. My parents want us to ship him to them for the summer for "Hank's Vacation" so they can watch him...its almost like Hank is their first grandchild.

He has been a blessing for us and it is because of your great organization.

Tully Mars, formerly known as Michael, came into our homes and hearts a couple of months after we lost our beloved weimy, Monday. Tully was one of Blue Angel's babies, a beautiful shy female weim that had come to the rescue full term and who gave birth to a litter of "saints". His brothers were all named as such given that Blue Angel crossed over the bridge after complications with a difficult birthing. We knew the challenges of bringing a weimy puppy into our home. Where Monday was a rare blessing of calm and class Tully is ALL boy. He and his new brother Bachelor, an seven-year old golden lab are working it out. Newman, the odd man out and cat is training Tully with the aid of a mean left jab. There's never a dull moment and we would not have it any other way!

Thank you MHWR for all of your help and looking out for all of our weimys.

After losing our first weim to cancer, it took us 6 years to get another. We toyed with getting another breed, but after looking at the MHWR website, decided that a weim was the only dog for us. We met Sam at a Rescue event and were immediately surprised at his gentle nature. Sam was a star from the very beginning! After meeting him a couple of times, we were able to foster him to see how he fit with us. From the very first night, we knew Sam was the weim for us and that we would be his forever home. He is loveable, calm, well-behaved and very loyal. We love walking him, cuddling with him, and especially taking him on car rides. It feels like he’s been with us for his whole life (6 years). We’re so lucky to have been given the opportunity to give Sam a home and we couldn’t be happier to know that we have such a great support in the MHWR. We are grateful for all the hard work and dedication this rescue provides. We look forward to getting our next weim from MHWR and continuing to be a part of this big family! For now, we’ll keep on spoiling Sam!

We adopted Holly (formerly Daisy) in October 2010. We had gone to an adoption event looking for a typical grey Weim, but after meeting Holly we knew it was only a matter of time before she was a member of our family.

Holly was very shy at first, always scared around new people. But after a few classes with All Breed Rescue and Training and daily runs in the Garden of the Gods and Red Rock Canyon, her confidence has been growing by leaps and bounds. One of her new favorite places is the local Bear Creek Dog Park, where she can run off leash and make lots of new friends with both people and other dogs. We’ve even got her over her fear of cars, enough so that we were able to take her on a long road trip to the Grand Canyon.

Holly’s current hobbies include catching flies, napping, having her belly rubbed, and bagging Colorado 14ers (she’s done four of them this summer!). We’re working hard on getting her to enjoy water.

We adopted Tess from MHWR in August of 2008. We had just had our 12 yr. old Weim put-down (due to illness) and had lots of room in our hearts to give another four-legged sweetheart a forever home. Tess' original owner had sustained severe injuries from an auto accident and could no longer keep her. A work associate took her but did not know the energy level of a 1 yr. old Weim and wanted to 'trade her in' for a less active dog. Instead he chose to surrender her and luckily Tess became ours. She had sustained trachea damage from many hours of being tied-up in her previous situation, and she had no muscle tone in her legs at all. But she was a love sponge!

Tess is now a lovey-dovey, happy, fetch-o-holic, spoiled, muscle filled pooch who has the run of 1/2 acre. Her favorite outside pass times besides fetching, include stalking bunnies (she won't catch them), chasing squirrels, and running after birds shadows as they fly over! She is a source of constant laughter and love in our house. Thank you, Mile High. You guys are the BEST!

Kether (AKA Bailey) has proved to be a sweet, loving, fun to be with, happy, well behaved, and comical, and don’t forget beautiful, rescue dog that anyone could hope for. In less than 3 months she has become so attached to us and us to her that we wonder how we did without her. Kether just followed the house rules and knew her way around “her” space from day one. It took about 6 hours for her to understand that the cats, Princess and Cheetah were the ruling pets. Now they are great pals and find each other to be with everyday, inside and out.

Kether just loves to ride in the SUV with her dad going to Home Depot, and Ace hardware and her very favorite, the Fort Collins Dog Park. Kether is ready to go at sunrise for her walk, (although sometimes I have to wake her on her “couch” in the sunroom).

When we take her out, she is the “darling” dog, with many people asking to pet her, which she loves. I always let people know where she came from, and just how careful MHWR was in choosing her new owners.
