Hi there! My name's Kai and I'm looking for a new friend and guardian to do fun things with. In Japanese, the name 'Kai' can mean "restoration" and "recovery", and that's what I want to do with you every evening - snuggle close to rest, recover and restore our selves from our busy day doing fun things so we can do some more tomorrow. I turn 7 in December , but I'm still young. I want to walk and run and explore and sniff stuff. I can get excited and bounce around when something good is about to happen, but I can also be quiet and hang out when that is appropriate. I can sit and wait while my dinner is being served. I also can be helpful, like if I think it's time for my dinner, I will go get my bowl and bring it to you so you don't have to look for it. Sometimes I like to chase and bring back a ball, othertimes not so much. I do like a nice soft toy too - I get to pull the stuffing out, and then can squish & carry them around! They're just lovely. Much better than baths. I'm living with another Weim right now and his guardian. When I first got to my foster home, the other Weim wanted to be selfish and not share pats and snuggles, but I didn't raise a fuss. Our guardian would shoo him off and give all the attention to me for a while. Now we get along pretty good and can hang out together and not be selfish. We run around a lot and show each other the good stuff each of us find to sniff. Our favorite thing is to go for hikes in the woods where we can run around without a leash and explore. We alway keep track of where our guardian is and come back to see what he is doing or if he calls us. Before this, I was living with a family with a few kids of various sizes which was pretty good. Lot of people to pay attention to me and give me pets and belly rubs. But... (well I'm kind of embarrased about this), it turns out I really don't like to have my feet messed with. And if I'm surprised with that or you keep messing with my feet, I *pinch* you to let them know I hate this and you need to stop. (Well, if you didn't have opposible thumbs, how would you pinch someone that you wanted to get a message to?) I'm careful enough that no one looses anything, but they notice. Then I feel bad for what I've done. Our guardian is working with me on this when I'm calm by petting my head and gently petting one of my feet at the same time. So, I am getting used to this and he is good about not suprising me and he stops when I start to look restless. Oh - he has a cat in the house too. We kinda look at each other and that's that. The other Weim likes to play chasing games with the cat but the cat does not seem to enjoy that much and quietly fades through the cat door to the dog-free basement before getting noticed. I like to meet new people and dogs on our walks and at dog parks. I get along with everybody and they all see to like me too. Everyone tells me I'm a handsome, happy dog. I love to meet kids too and they alway seem to like meeting me, even if they're not much taller than me. I even like all the nice ladies at the vet's office, even if the stick me with sharp things. When they trimmed my nails, one of them hugged me close to keep me calm (and so I didn't pinch the one messing with my feet!). When that was done, they both petted me so then I was happy and not stressed out. The Vet lady also gave me some pills to keep me healthy and happy - one for low-ish thyroid levels and another NSAID for my slightly stiff right hip. She says I have slight hip displasia but it is stable and shouldn't get worse. All I know is, with the pill, I'm not stiff when I first get up and I can still run around with any dog I want. And I get peanut butter on a cracker every day! Yum! So, might you be the one to be my new guardian and adventure companion and snuggle-kins? If you think so, I'd like to meet to find out. I am being fostered in Columbus Ohio. There's nothing like a warm happy dog to snuggle with on a cool fall evening. Just let the good people at LWR know.

Hi, I'm Keylee, and I'm just a fun, silly, sweet goofball!I love getting pets and giving snuggles.I'm a little shy at first, but once I warm up to you, I am a loyal and spunky companion.I am approximately 3 years old, 58 pounds, and up to date on all my shots.I'm heartworm and parasite negative and was recently spayed.I'm more on the petite side for a Weim, but I am long and lean! I came to LWR a few weeks ago, when my housemate and I were found wandering on a golf course in a rural part of Kentucky.We were obviously well-cared for, and the shelter found out who our owner was, but he said he wasn’t coming to get us at the shelter “this time.”You see, we were repeat offenders. It would be best for me if I lived in a home with a high (at least 6 foot) secure fence, not an invisible fence, or with a responsible person who wouldn’t trust me loose outside by myself off leash, or give me opportunities to slip out a door. I like to jump 4 foot fences! It was super-confusing for me in the shelter, but I have really come out of my shell in my foster home.When I first got to my foster mom's house, I was so timid and shy and scared of everything - the garage door closing, the ice machine making ice, and cars driving by.I was even scared of my own reflection in the mirror!Now, with the help of my foster family, I have gotten used to these things.I also learned how to go up and down stairs for the first time! Besides getting pets and giving snuggles, I like chasing tennis balls, running around the yard, chewing on bones, and going on walks.I love playing with other dogs, but don’t know if I could live with a cat.I am slow to warm up to children, but once I get to know them, I am happy to play with them.I am very smart, obedient, know some English words, and am housetrained.I know how to sit and stay.My foster mom is working on English words with me because she is pretty sure I was never taught any at all.I walk best with a martingale collar attached to my leash.I sometimes get scared when I am out walking, but if you talk to me in a happy voice and give me a treat, I'm just fine.I don't much like crates, but I am fine with dog beds.I'm a little spoiled, and like to get up on the furniture and beds.However, I am easily redirected when my foster mom wants me to move off her bed. I ride well in cars and am not food- or toy-aggressive.I will bark when someone comes to the door or walks by the house.Like most Weims, I am a "Velcro" dog and will attach myself to my new owner.I am super-loyal to my family and want to be with them all the time.My foster mom has left me home alone for several hours with her other female Weim, giving me free reign of the house.I have never destroyed anything.I would do best in a home with another dog, preferably a male, to keep me company.I tend to be submissive and look to the other dog for guidance.If you are looking for a sweet, loyal, love-bug who likes to give kisses and snuggles, please consider adopting me!I need a family who is willing to be patient with me, as I learn to become more confident in myself. I am currently being fostered in Prospect, KY, a suburb of Louisville.I live with my foster mom, a 10 year old Weim and two teenagers.** If you are interested in this Weim, please visit www.louisvilleweimrescue.com and fill out an adoption application.
