Facts about Dixie 2

  • Breed: Weimaraner
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7871578
Due to age, health, or behavioral issues, WRS considers this dog to be a long term foster dog. Currently living in a loving foster home, WRS is still committed to providing care for as long as is needed.
Dixie is now 10 years old and is doing well in her foster home. She has convinced her foster mom that she does not need to be crated!
What a difference a few weeks makes! Dixie is doing wonderfully in her new foster home and showing no signs of separation anxiety or any other  destructive behaviors. Dixie is getting along wonderfully with the other dogs in her foster home, is a terrific car rider, a great leash walker, and has tremendous recall. She's completely housebroken and really wants to please her person. However, she is NOT cat friendly. We're so excited to see Dixie thriving and loving life!  
Sweet Dixie is still looking for her forever home. Dixie does wonderfully with children and other dogs; there's not a mean bone in her  body. Dixie does have separation anxiety and needs a patient family that understands that and is willing to work with her on that.
Dixie was abandoned at high kill animal control in southern Alabama by her owners for unknown reasons. We do know that Dixie has been spayed and is about 7 years old. We will post more about this sweet girl once she gets settled in and we have a chance to evaluate her.

About Weimaraner Rescue of the South

About Our Rescue Group...

Weimaraner Rescue of the South (WRS) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to saving Weimaraners in need in Alabama, Mississippi, and parts of Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia and placing them into loving forever homes. We have been saving Weimaraners throughout our footprint for more than 10 years.

Our priority is to rescue Weimaraners who find themselves in animal controls and high-kill shelters in Alabama, Mississippi, and parts of Tennessee, Louisiana, and Georgia. All Weimaraners in our care are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical issues they might have including but not limited to heartworm disease, orthopedic concerns, and vision issues. Our efforts are funded by adoption fees and donations from "Weim-loving" people like you.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are not a shelter, therefore, we are not in one central location. We place our dogs in loving foster homes throughout the deep South so we can learn about each one enabling us to adopt them to their perfect family. Alabama hosts the majority of our rescues although we do have foster homes throughout our Southern footprint. Our dogs are not available for visitors unless an adoption application has been approved for them specifically.

Our Adoption Process...

Are you ready to adopt? Make sure you do your homework on this breed before taking this step as this is not the breed for the average household and you must be committed to their needs as well as your own. Still want to add a Weimaraner to your family? Great! Fill out a WRS Adoption Application to begin the adoption process with us. You will be contacted by one of our volunteers to begin the approval process which includes a veterinary background check, phone interview, and home visit.

ADOPTION FEES: EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2016 OUR ADOPTION FEE FOR PUPPIES 6 MONTHS AND YOUNGER IS $375 WITH A $100 REFUNDABLE SPAY/NEUTER CONTRACT, $300 FOR ADULT WEIMARANERS, SENIORS AND MIXED BREEDS $225. This includes microchip, spay/neuter, and Heartworm prevention. All dogs have been fully vetted and treated for any medical issues of which we are aware.
