Meet The Real Shelter Dogs of The South: Weimaraner Edition (Yes, You Can Adopt One!)

It’s Weim time!

By Stacy Lenz

Weimaraners are one of the most photogenic breeds of dogs and we’re not just saying that because we had William Wegman Weimaraner calendars years 1995-1999 hanging on our bedroom wall. From their sleek gray coats to amber colored eyes, they are basically the Gigi Hadid of the dog world. But these dogs aren’t all beauty and no brains—they are incredibly intelligent and active. For this reason, loving weimaraners sometimes end up in shelters because unprepared owners are unable to give the dogs enough mental and physical exercise, and, in turn, their sweet pup has maybe chewed the siding off the house. Luckily, that’s where Weimaraner Rescue of the South steps in, to rehome these sweet dogs to families active and engaging enough that their weim will never be bored to the point of doing his own home remodeling.

Weimaraner Rescue of the South is an all-volunteer nonprofit that rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes Weimaraners in need in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia. They are experts on this gorgeous breed and take great measures to assess family and lifestyle to find each weim the perfect forever home. In addition to knowing weims exceptionally well, they also somehow seem to know us exceptionally well— they sell a rescue Weimaraner calendar to support the shelter, which is right in our wheelhouse!

And now, meet your real shelter dogs, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines!
