MHWR - Rescue Rainbow Bridge

All of the dogs listed below are Weimaraners who have passed over the Rainbow Bridge. If you have a Rainbow Bridge story you'd like to share, please email your photos and story here.

Some of these Weims passed due to illness, old age, or bloat, others were not placeable in our rescue program and were euthanized. Many of these dogs were loved beyond belief and their passing was hard on families. Other dogs weren't loved nearly enough and deserved so much more than they received. If you are thinking of breeding a litter so that you can make some money or because you think it would be a good experience for you and your family, please think of these dogs and think again. Bringing pets into this world is a commitment that should not be taken lightly. If you choose to bring a litter of puppies into this world, be prepared to take care of them no matter where they go after they leave your home...



We had to say goodbye to our beautiful, sweet Sasha last night. She was always more like a human than a dog and her empathy and ability to communicate through those eyes was a gift that will always be missed. She brought us more happiness in her 7 years than we could have ever imagined. We love you Sash!

We had just begun planning out Miss Rosie’s future. We were so hopeful she was going to make a remarkable recovery, and enjoy the long, happy life every pup deserves. She was lethargic on Wednesday, and when her gums began to look nearly white, her foster mom rushed her to the ER. Rosie’s gall bladder had nearly ruptured. The emergency veterinarians, our director, and Rosie’s foster mom all agreed it was best to let her pass.

Rosie crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday evening, with her foster mom by her side. We are devastated she did not get the life she deserved, but we are comforted knowing her last several weeks were the best of her life. She knew love and friendship, she got to go on adventures, and even start to recover from her neglected past enough to get a reputation as Rosie the Naughty. She learned to hike, she had many beloved friends of the human and canine variety, and she was oh so loved by her foster mom.
