My name is Thor and I am a beautiful, 2-year-old male that is as sweet as they come! I came to GLWR with a disability in my hips and legs from a past trauma to my pelvis that went untreated. As a result of that injury, I have some lasting neurological damage. Other than that, I am a sweet, adorable Weim. I will always be a special needs dog and will require regular, long-term homeopathic vet care. My adopters must commit to financially supporting my medical needs, in addition to meeting my daily needs, which include specific potty duties and washing. And in return, I promise to love and cherish you with all of my great big Weimy heart! I need baby gates in front of all the steps except for the ones to get outside because, in general, stairs are difficult for me. My foster family has worked very hard with me, investing time, patience, and love to build my strength. The results have been nothing short of a miracle. I like to go for walks and can go up to three miles. I also love walks on the beach or in the woods. When I get tired, I begin to hop. I am create trained and that is where I am when my foster parents go to work, but I am let out once during the day. I would love to find someone who works from home, is semi- or retired, or has a capable, responsible dog walker because three to four hours is my maximum crate time. My favorite thing in the world is a nasty looking soccer ball. I love playing chase with that ball. After potty and exercise time I like to hang out with my foster family and watch TV, just like any other Weim! I have not been able to get on the couch, but I love when someone comes to sit on the floor with me. I have a never ending appreciation for the care and attention that I get that helps me live a great dog life. I get along great with kids and other dogs. I would not do well in a home with stairs or hardwood, laminate or tiled floors. I really need a home with as much carpet as possible. If you think your heart and home has room for a sweet, lovable boy, please contact GLWR. I would love to find my forever family!

About Great Lakes Weimaraner Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Great Lakes Weimaraner Rescue is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit group whose primary mission is to help with the rescue & placement of Weims in the Great Lakes region; including Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Ontario.

Dogs that enter our rescue are placed into our foster care network which provides a stable, loving family environment. Each dog's medical & emotional needs are provided for as they wait for their new "forever" home. We believe that every dog deserves a chance to enjoy a good life. We adhere to a "no-kill" philosophy.

GLWR was created in an effort to support & provide for the rescue, recovery, care, rehabilitation & re-homing of Weims in need across the Great Lakes region. No one individual is GLWR...we came together to form a collective & collaborative organization with our sole purpose being to assist Weims in need. We work with the various networks of shelters and containment facilities in several states as well as accept owner relinquishments. We exist solely on the generous donations of those who love these majestic "gray ghosts" as much as we do & the fund raising efforts of our very talented and energetic group. All funds received are used to support the vet care & other essential expenses necessary in the daily care of the dogs.

We believe in doing everything possible to help a dog make the transition to their forever home. We are here for the Weims & the Weims alone...our reward lies not in the accolades of being "rescuers" but in the gratitude we see in the bright, loving eyes of one of our Weims as they move onto their forever home... dogs that were once sad, dejected, & without hope that now have a chance to experience the love and warmth of a family that will truly love and care for them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Great Lakes Weimaraner Rescue is not a shelter. We are a group of volunteers that live throughout the Great Lakes Region; Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Ontario. The weims stay in foster homes until they are adopted. Once you complete the adoption process, you are more than welcome to visit the dogs at their foster home!

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our Weims please contact our Application Coordinator at We will send you an application and get you started on the adoption process. This process consists of three phases: an application with a vet and personal reference check, a phone interview and a home visit. Once you are approved you can start meeting dogs!! Our tax deductible adoption donations are as follows: Puppies up to 6 months, 6 months to 1 year - $400, dogs 1-up to 3-years - $350, dogs 3-6 years - $300, dogs over 6 years and over - $250 **

** Special needs dogs and senior dogs may be considered for a reduced donation due to the nature of the medical condition and the age of the dog. **
