A colleague has asked for advice as a friend of hers needs to rehome his 2 year old dog after a relationship breakdown. All I know is that he is a grey, is KC registered, housetrained and good with children.

Breed rescue have been contacted - I assume the KC one - and said they would be in touch but that was two weeks ago. I have suggested he contact the breeder but any other advice would be aporeciated.

The poor bloke is very sad and has considered walkers etc but has concluded the youngster needs more than he can offer him.

Thanks.

Has he contacted the breed rescue again? Almost every rescue is busy as heck, they may just not have gotten round to contacting him again or have forgotten in the chaos. I imagine a weimy rescue will be very busy.

The rescue I had Quila from, Hilbrae at cold Hatton, north of Telford, are very good and have lots of support, have been doing a lot of rehoming recently. I don't know if they've got spaces, as they're the pound kennels, but he could try them. They're Doberman breeders and, originally took in dobermans for rescue, and only use kind training there smile.gif

How sad to have to give up a 2 year old ....

There are several Weim. Rescue groups, but I have on a few occasions dealt with this lady when I have had enquries about helping Weims. I believe she is the main breed rescue contact, and has always been very helpful;:-

Mrs Margarita Booker. National. wharton@bunduki.co.uk. 01293 871373. 07836 789464

Also, as said above. always worth a chase to the original contact as things can get lost / over-looked.

I hope they manage to find somewhere for their boy.

Thanks all - I will pass on your advice.

I get the impression they got the dog as a pup in happier times. I can't and don't want to imagine being in a situation whereby I had to part with Bert. sad.gif So sad....

Just a quick update. The lad is staying with his male human who is staying in the house - originally the female human and children were and she felt unable to keep the dog.

He has kept the contacts/ideas you gave him as he knows it will be difficult on his own and asked me to pass on his thanks for the advice.
