MEET 6 year old HOBIE!!! Dazed and confused right now, Hobie was removed from the only home he ever knew because his elderly human mom had to go into assisted living. Hobie has always lived inside and is 99.9% house trained. He has had an occasional accident because, well, who can hold it forever if you aren’t let outside?? He is a nice boy loving to put his head in your lap or gently push his body into yours just begging to be petted. He lived with a female 12 year old Weimaraner. Hobie hasn’t had much exposure to kids but when he has, he does well with them. Hobie loves to walk and would most likely be a great hiking buddy. Want to meet him!?!?! Get your application in! He is fostered in the Los Angeles area.
Meet sweet, sweet 4 year old Maggie. She is the sister of Duke and will be ready to adopt after she is spayed. She is fostered in the Lancaster area. Foster describes Maggie as a total sweetheart. Great with kids and dogs she loves to hang out with the family. She is housebroken and has spent most of her time hanging out with her family. She is surrendered due to family circumstances that were unavoidable. We can tell you more as the days go by but we do know she is low key and everyone loves her.
Meet JIMMY and WYATT….both 2 years old and a pair we hope can live together. Jimmy is the gorgeous Blue boy on the bottom in the photo. Jimmy came into rescue with separation anxiety. He gets really attached to his human. He is loving and sweet and loves to just ‘hang out’ in front of his house watching the world go by. He never goes anywhere…just lays out front people watching. As long as he knows his dad is inside he is content. His anxiety got to be a little too much for his owner so the solution seemed to be to get him a playmate.. So in come Wyatt, the silver, also 2. Wyatt is Jimmy’s pal and keeps him on a lower stress level. Both boys love to play and wrestle with one another. Wyatt is more of a cuddler and keeps the two of them in line. They are both awesome dogs who love car rides and long walks or hikes. Both boys are house trained and would love to get a brand new home together. They love each other and it would be a shame to separate them. That being said, they CAN be separated at some point if we can’t place them together. It WILL be hard on them, especially Jimmy. Anyone want to give it a try?? Both just youngsters and really nice boys. Adoption fee is $600 each or if adopted together we can work something out.
This is UTAH…a stunning Blue 5 year old Weimaraner. Not a thing wrong with this boy! He is great with larger kids (will knock down smaller children), reliably housetrained,crate trained good with all people of all ages.He does great with other submissive dogs. Good with dominant dogs but a little fearful of them after being attacked by a much larger dog as a puppy. He has high energy and makes a great hiking partner. His owner says that he is ‘aggressively cuddly’! Meaning you will NEVER lack night time cuddles! Utah will only be matched to the home that is best for him. Utah is currently smack dab in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. If you would like to meet him be sure to fill out the application. Vaccines are current but due.
PLEASE READ! First step in adoption is to fill out adoption application at www.calwear.org/adopt/ Fostered in Lancaster area. Meet handsome Baila! Baila is a 8 year old neutered male who was passed on to owner by a friend. Owner did not know Weimaraners and is not used to the clingy, velcro attachment they get. Baila is housebroken but may need a refresher because owner had no idea of how to take care of a Weim and kept him outdoors quite a bit. Baila needs a little leash work but owner described him as sweet loving the company of other dogs and even his cat. He LOVES stuffy toys and knows basic commands. He needs a slow introduction to strangers and dogs entering his space but warms up quickly after a few WOOFS! Baila needs a loving home with older children and perhaps a cat who tolerates dogs. Small children might be knocked down by his exuberance but he does like kids. He is available and fostered in the northern Los Angeles area. If you would like to take a road trip to meet Baila you won’t be disappointed! Fill out an adoption application We prefer adopters to be local in SOCAL unless you plan to be in this area to have a meet and greet…we don’t ship dogs and a meeting is required.
Meet Finn our miracle dog! Picked up as a stray deemed a medical lifer CalWEAR stepped in to help thinking Finn was a terminal case. Several vets took a look and an ultrasound was preformed. A brave surgical team stepped up and what was thought of as cancerous nodes turned out after surgery and biopsies to be a hematoma, weighing 778 grams (approx. 1 3/4 lbs. + fluid) caused by severe bodily injury. The additional nodes were fat deposits caused by severe malnutrition and poor diet. Although he may be more suited to be called Brutus since he lacks grace and is a super gentle giant. Super smart boy who learns extremely fast! In less than 3 weeks he learned all his basics and is extremely sweet. LOVE people and has learned affection and attention, all new to this boy. Gets along great with other dogs and NOT at all with cats. He did attack his foster’s cat and has a severe HATE for cats. His hind legs were atrophied and Finn was walking on his hocks. With daily walks he is learning walking on a leash and on his feet! He is the perfect companion dog for someone who does not have nor never plans on having a cat. Finn needs a home that will truly love him for the amazing dog that he is. No barking, no counter surfing (seriously) no separation anxiety, stays off the furniture. Knows how to open screen doors, water bottles, get out of a car seat belt without destroying the harness…Finn needs an Addison Steroid Injection every 25 days or so. It will take a special someone to take this lovely boy in.
PLEASE! The first step in adopting or fostering for CalWear is to go to www.calwear.org/adopt/ The process will be much faster for you if you do that first! This is Zeus! He is a gorgeous 4 year old neutered male. Zeus is housetrained, knows basic commands and LOVES to be petted. He has an obsession with squeaky toys and loves to play fetch and tug of war. He loves to get attention by placing his head in your lap and looking up with those big beautiful eyes. He seems to have been given too much love in the form of food as he weighs in at 85 pounds so could use a little of the baby fat. He is loving and adoring. In his lifetime Zeus grew up in a home with three children and two senior smaller dogs. His previous owners comments: He is a loving and playful dog. We can’t give him the attention he deserved and feel that other family will be able to give him the love that he needs. He is gentle towards my children. He had gained some weight cause we haven’t been able to take him out to exercise, he needs some training with walking. Please find a good family for our Zeus. Zeus could use a new home! Would you like to meet him?? He is currently in the Glendora area.
MEET DOZER. At age 11, Dozer is still active and loves her walks. She is a bit cranky in her old age so is best without children in the home even though she was raised with kids. She has had many dogs around her but loves being an only child. If your passion is companionship and regular short distance walks with cuddling on the side, this girl is for you! Here is what her foster in Wrightwood (San Bernardino) has to say about her:
Dozer is doing wonderfully well… Such a very nice girl! Excellent watch dog; still indifferent to my own two plus a foster, but zero aggression except a warning bark when one of them comes right next to her crate. I’m crating her ONLY when she’s in the same room with the others… It’s too small a space for me to feel comfortable letting them all be together, otherwise, for the short time she’s with me. She does very well in it. Dozer ignores the other dogs when pottying in the yard. She has stopped looking like she’s searching for the relinquishing family. She is only is unhappy when I leave the room (barks for me to come back). Has absolutely no issues when she’s out with me in other parts of the house or yard. Would much rather be loose than crated… like most dogs. Eating well, doesn’t resist going into the crate. Getting friendlier with me- tail wagging, coming close to be pet. I’m strongly guessing she’d be fine loose in a home, especially after getting used to a new routine…she has excellent manners. But for the short remaining time, I’ll just experiment briefly, once, when I have my tax appointment in 2 days: choosing to leave her to have the run of the downstairs, rather than be stressed and miserable in the crate once I leave. Normally it’s not something I ever do with a new foster, but rather a gut reaction with this particular old lady. 🙂
Please fill out an adoption questionnaire through the website if you’d like to meet Dozer!
MEET TUCKER. Tucker is a big friendly boy and loves to go on walks, play fetch (and not give the ball back), chew on bones, and be with people. He also knows basic commands (like paw, come and sit). We’re still working on down and stay. He’s great with dogs, big and small. He’s also very well mannered and does NOT exhibit any traits of separation anxiety. In foster care, Tucker has been great with everyone in the house, including two adults and a boatload of Weimaraners (all ages and sizes). His only downfall, unfortunately, is that he has a history of resource guarding people, and will therefore be most successful in a home where his new people are experienced enough to help him get past the resource guarding, or in a home with one person so the problem isn’t an issue.
Tucker is three years old, neutered, housebroken, and up to date on vaccinations. Please fill out an adoption questionnaire if you’d like to meet Tucker. He is currently located in Tehachapi, CA.
Stevie is a delight and quite the gorgeous Diva. She just turned 6! Stevie has grown up with other dogs and older, taller than her children. We don’t know how she would be with toddlers. She is happy and regal. She is the victim of a divorce. Her human mom has had to move out of state and is trying to cope with the rehoming of the family’s three dogs. Stevie is now perplexed at why she is being locked outside away from all she knows and loves, or in the bedroom only able to hear the sounds of life and laughter. Her mom realizes this is no life for an active Weimaraner so has taken the sad step to find her a home where she can thrive once again. Never abused or neglected, Stevie is confused and not understanding what is going on. She will be adopted to the most qualified adopter who is the best match for her. She is quite healthy with no known health issues. She will be vaccinated and Vetted. Can she come live with you? Must be within the Socal adoption area. She is currently in the Cathedral City area of California near Palm Springs. Fill out an adoption questionnaire here.
MEET NALA!!!! Through no fault of her own, Nala has once again come up for adoption. Nala’s owner, who adopted her from CalWEAR last October, has come into some debilitating Medical issues. Poor Nala has resorted to laying by owners side not getting out and enjoying the fresh air. Nala is cuddly and friendly. She’s a senior at the age of 9 but has a lot of life left in her! She loves to go on walks but doesn’t need to go far. She has a bit of arthritis as we all do as we age. Nala would love to join a family or single person who can get her out to put her nose in the air and start loving life again. Her owner knew Nala needed more so called us for help. It is a pretty urgent situation. The owner will need to be hospitalized. Does anyone have room for her? Her adoption fee will be waived to the right home. We just want this girl to experience life as she deserves. Other than the arthritis Nala does have worn teeth from being a stray initially when we got her and a few age related lumps and bumps. PLEASE submit an adoption questionnaire and we will reach out to you!
Update: Willow’s adoption is pending.
Four year old WILLOW is a beautiful, happy, clingy, playful girl who was given to her previous family by a co-worker. She lived with large and small dogs and children and did very well but it was too much for them to handle. They thought Willow was being deprived having to keep her in the backyard with hardly any interaction or exercise so think another home would be best for her. They left her outdoors and then were surprised when she wanted to dig to keep herself busy. As with all Weims, she wants to be with her family and get out for walks or runs. She is such a sweet girl and deserves to be indoors with all four paws up to the ceiling in a soft cozy dog bed. Willow is intact and will need spayed before adoption. If you’re interested in meeting Willow, please submit an adoption questionnaire and we’ll be in touch!
