A Heartwarming Dog Rescue Story from Weimaraner Rescue of the North

      Ghost officially became a Canadian citizen today! Let's all give him, Krista and Ken a "LIKE" to congratulate them on the beginning of their new life together.
      People often ask about how adopters are selected. That is a hard one to articulate in an answer. Every dog, applicant and situation is different. It's about getting the right combination of many factors. For those unlucky enough to be within the "inner circle of trust" here they know decisions are so carefully made and worried over. The bottom line is that I want to know these amazing dogs will be loved and cared for by committed, responsible owners who take owning a dog seriously.
    People who have owned weimaraners before and will go through some lengths to adopt one instantly get my attention. I have found that when something comes really easy, delivered on a silver platter, it's sometimes not appreciated as it should be- and in the world of adoptions, the dog pays the price. Adopting from us is not an easy, fast process nor is it meant to be really...
     There is so much that goes into it. These dogs deserve to be appreciated. When people commit to our adoption process I know the odds are they will be. (Although you can never be careful enough in my opinion!)
     Krista and Ken came all the way from Newfoundland in Canada (it's an island Province in the Atlantic, they flew to get here then rented a car and drove for hours) to adopt Ghost- quite a journey! For a dog who does not have a "stellar" past.
Will they appreciate him? My vote is YES!
       Ghost was so thrilled with his new people. I have never experienced a dog instantly just "click" with his new people like he did with them. It was like he knew them all his life. He just "knew" and he let me know he picked THEM!
He is a very special boy- wise beyond his years and such a personality. Today's adoption of Ghost was something I will never forget. Look at his face in the picture! He looks like the happiest dog in the world! Well least the happiest in Canada -eh?

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
