Brees's Story...
Hey there....what's up? My name is Brees and I was named after the New Orleans Saints Quarterback, Drew Brees. I guess they knew right from the get go that I was a going to be a "superstar"! I am still a young boy, just having turned a year old in March. I am very athletic, tall and lanky, not to mention very handsome with my silvery coat and infectious grin. I love to be the center of attention and the life of the party...hey, is that a lampshade over there.. just kidding...lol? And cute? Trust me, I am irresistible and do I know cute! I love to look at my foster Mom with my lip tucked up and eyes sparkling...makes her laugh every time and that means I get a pat or a treat...and if I really want to put it over the top a little sideways tilt of my head will do it! I can get everyone laughing too with my goofy antics, they say I am like a "slinky" toy as I can fall asleep all twisted around with my legs, body and head going every which way. My foster family says that my personality is one of a "pleaser" as I just want to make everyone happy!
Let me tell you a little about my life so far....I was originally brought home by a couple when I was just a pup...they were going to make me a part of their family but then their home and family situation changed and so that meant mine did too. The nice folks at GWLR helped arrange for me to stay with a cool family in Chicago for a while and while I was there I learned a lot and had lots of fun. They helped me to learn how to behave when I am in a home so now I can free roam in the house and hang with the other dogs here. I was trained to be in a crate, but I don't really like that much and as long as you "puppy proof" your home I will do okay free roaming.

When I first arrived there I really didn't know anything. So, I had to learn lots of new things when I stayed with them (I was an A+ student too). I learned things like; how to go up and down stairs (like super fun), run or jog with my humans, sit, stay and wait patiently (that part is really hard), I come back when called (once you and I are "Buds" of course), catch ice cubes from the fridge (like yum), give you my paw to shake hands with you and I can even give you a high five too! But the best thing that they taught me there was how to CUDDLE! I love to snuggle up on the couch with my human family and fall asleep on their laps. They told me I am not suppose to be on the kitchen counters (they laugh and say I am a "counter terrorist" whatever that is) , but I am still working on that one because if there is something good up there it is just so hard to resist...I try, I really do, but between you and I, I still get up there sometimes. Shhhh...don't tell anyone that!

So, let me tell you more about "superstar" me....I am a happy fella with a zest for life and love most everyone and everything (except the water bottle...ummm...not nice)...I like being with all kinds of people, adults and kids alike. My first foster family had five older kids and we had a blast playing and hanging out. My foster Mom & Dad would take me and my weimie foster sister running everyday and then let us run and play in a big field. I also love playing with sticks (I can earn my kibble by helping you keep the yard free of all sticks) as I am really good at stick collecting. I can also be put to work doing routine yard checks for underground rodents...those gophers and chippies cannot hide from me...a little paw work in the dirt and I will find them! I have not quite learned how to refill those holes yet though! I also love to be with other dogs too. It is fun to play with the other weimies here and we often run to see who has the fastest "zoom" when playing out in the yard. When we are all wore out from playing we curl up with each other and take naps together. A couple of the younger girls here are really fun to play and wrestle with and we have lots of fun time together.

I also get to go to day camp this summer and so I have the chance to play with all kinds of dogs; big dogs, little dogs, dogs with long hair, dogs with short legs, etc....I mean who knew that they had dogs that looked like that...go figure! No matter, they are all really fun to play with. They have a pool there too, but I am not sure about the whole water thing. One of the big yellow dogs there (a lab I think) loves to hang out in the pool. I put a paw in but that was about it. It was a funny feeling! So, instead I hung out pool side until they emptied the pool and then got to play in the mud...it was a blast!

I know some of you may have something called a "cat" but I do not know what those are....I may be able to get used to hanging with one, but I am not sure as I have not really met one yet. Other things that I enjoy are...chew bones, treats, hanging out to help you cook at mealtime, mealtime (my food bowl makes me really happy), McDonald's, investigating new smells, car rides, sleeping on the couch (or in bed with you if you will let me), carrying things like toys, pillows, pop cans ( I am told that is not good), or anything that I can pick up...so you will need to watch your socks and shoes still, and just hanging out with you as much as we can....oh, and did I say McDonald's?

So what do you think? Does it sound like we may be a good match? If you have an active home and life style, preferably with some older kids and other dogs to play with I think I would make a great addition to your family. I would like a yard that is securely fenced so I can have some time to play and sniff outside and be safe ( I can jump over a 3-4 foot fence no problem, remember that I am athletic). I am fun, energetic, and entertaining. Oh, and let's not forget adorable and absolutely irresistible (insert lip curl and head tilt here)! I will be the best companion ever and we can go everywhere together...I can even hang out with you in the bathroom, I am great on shower patrol and will curl up and wait for you...I am the "bestest" bathroom buddy ever! I know if you meet me I will steal your heart and you will not be able to resist taking me home! So, give the folks at GLWR a call and see what you have to do to come and meet me....I am waiting (patiently I promise) and am looking forward to meeting you! But hurry, I don't think it will be long before someone comes to take me home....I am way to cool to pass up!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brees, a Grand Haven Weimaraner dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Weimaraner for sale in Grand Haven, or seeking a Weimaraner dog from a breeder in Grand Haven.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Grand Haven already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Grand Haven breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Weimaraner breeders who help with Weimaraner rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Grand Haven paves the way for another one to be saved.
