Dear Tarheel Rescue:


I asked my new MOM to write you this note 'cause I wanted to be sure you knew I was doing just terrific!  It has been 3 weeks now since I left Peggy my beloved Foster MOM and began my new life in what my new MOM says is my forever home….I like it here!  I have a big yard to play in, lots of toys and blankets to keep me warm and really good food.  My new parents love on me all the time and tell me “ sophie is a good girl” about a million times a day……go figure…..

  In the mornings we get to go to the field and run and play…...I am learning to sit and stay ( not fond of that stay part ) but I get it.  I also get to go to the beach on the weekends……there is really strange stuff there…….crabs and fish and shells….and the waves…not sure why they keep disappearing when I get close……..  I am a lucky girl and I just wanted to say thanks to all of you at Tarheel who took me in and then found me MY forever family.  Lucky again……I know there are other Weims out there that need help, so would you please keep doing all that great work?

  My Mom says you are all very special people…and she is so grateful because she says I rescued her…….I think, when we have our morning love up’s she means we were meant to be together…….thank you for making THAT happen!!!!

  Just wanted you to know I am a grateful and very happy girl ….please give licks for me to all those waiting for a new home…tell them their day is coming…..and it is worth the wait!


Love, kisses, licks and abundant tail wags

  • To educate and inform the public about Weimaraners, and to provide information on care and training (including counseling owners on solving behavior problems) that might otherwise necessitate the owner giving up the dog;
  • To provide education to new and prospective Weimaraner owners as well as continue to expand our own education;
  • To help owners be responsible for their pet (if they must give it up for adoption) by advising them on how to do so correctly and carefully, and to take into our foster program those dogs that need immediate help;
  • To handle with the utmost kindness all of the dogs entrusted to our care, from their day of induction into the rescue system through their placements in their final homes and afterwards through our follow-up program;
  • To provide a safe and kind end to life for animals who, through abuse, infirmity, or old age, cannot be placed in a new environment.
