Formerly Abused Weimaraner Success Story: Westminster!

Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show's photo.
This year at the Westminster Kennel Club Show a Weimaraner who was "dumped" from a family in Virginia and adopted by a loving family went on to win acclaim. 
   Every dog has the same opportunity. It all depends on the pet parent and how much love they give a dog. This dog went from an abusive household to being a rock star.
  So, put time into training your dog. Give them love and attention. They deserve it and they will return it a million-fold to you.
   There are MANY Weimaraners that are currently at DC Area Weimaraner Rescue and Weimaraner Rescue of the North and Tickled Pink Weimaraner Rescue (to name just a few) that need homes. Please consider adopting from them. 
"MAVERICK'S STORY" - 
#WKC: "Maverick,' a 5-year-old Weimaraner, has overcome a life of neglect and abuse to reach the green carpet of Westminster. His Virginia Beach, Va., owner purchased the dog off Craigslist in early 201 - simply to remove him from an environment that appeared to include almost 24-hour crating. After months of caring for Maverick’s many ailments and establishing a sound diet, his owner began entering Maverick in shows. In his second show, he took the breed and has been on a roll. He has a new lease on life, and a show name: GCH Anson’s Unforgettable. Photo credit: Steve Surfman

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.
