Meet Jake, a 7 month old, gray male puppy. You may remember him from a couple months ago; he was the adorable puppy that needed to have surgery to correct a birth defect on his right eye. The surgery was successful and he has partial vision in that eye and he gets along fine.
Jake LOVES to play and run in the yard with other dogs, he chases tennis balls, he is learning to fetch, he knows when he needs to go out to potty and lets his human know. The foster home where Jake is staying now has two other Weims there and Jake got lucky, one of them is his brother! Jake looks happy to see him again! They spend their day playing chase, pulling each other around with chew ropes, wrestling, and napping in the sun. His favorite treat is when his human goes to get ice from the fridge, he can hear that noise and he is there like a flash, and I give him ice to chew! Jake loves to cuddle on the couch with his human and doggie buddies, he loves to be petted and get a belly rub, and give wet Weimy kisses. You’ll never be lonely with Jake around, he will follow you everywhere.
Admittedly, Jake can be a little stinker sometimes; he has a big boy voice, and he barks a lot, usually at nothing, just likes to hear his voice. When he gets really excited he jumps up, and because he is big for his age, he can be quite a handful. He needs a lot of exercise! Also, he is tall enough now to help himself to any food left on a table or kitchen counter, and it is his favorite thing to do and he is very good at it! Thankfully, his foster dad knows this is puppy behavior, and is patiently teaching him some better manners; He is very smart and it’s working. His new family will need to be patient and keep up with his training.
Jake already knows how to COME when you call his name, and SIT and STAY. When he goes for a walk on a leash, he gets so excited that it is hard for him to concentrate, but he is getting better at it. He is good with adults and teens, but because he gets so excited, he could probably knock down an adult without meaning to, so he would be better in a home with no small kids. Cats, fowl, and squirrels are a NO. Smaller dogs are ok. He will go into his crate to nap on his own, but once that door closes, he gets lonely and barks a lot to let you know. So he has not finished his crate training yet and this will need some work.
Well, that’s Jake, a handsome 7 month old boy. If you have any questions about him, please let us know, because he is ready to join his new forever family!

Weimaraner Rescue of Texas
WEIMARANER RESCUE of North Texas, Inc. is an all-volunteer 501-C-3, non-profit, charitable organization.
Since 1989, our small group of volunteers has saved over 1,600 Weimaraners from suffering and death. We exist solely on donations and fund raising efforts. Every penny of our proceeds pay for veterinary care, food, boarding and essential expenses. WRNT began as the Rescue Committee of the Lone Star Weimaraner Club, Inc. (formerly North Texas Weimaraner Club). In 1997 WRNT incorporated and was granted 501-C-3 status by the I.R.S., enabling tax deductible donations to our rescue fund.
OUR MISSION is the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of Weimaraners from animal shelters, found stray, abandoned, neglected and abused. We educate the public on responsible pet ownership, and promote spay/neuter. We are dedicated to end the tragedy of pet over-population by opposing puppy mills, pet stores selling live animals, and irresponsible over-breeding of companion animals.
