Available Weims

If you are interested in adopting a LWR Weimaraner, please fill out an adoption application.



Hello, my name is Molly and I’m an eight-year-old Weimaraner. I was rescued in May with one of my pups and my male mate. I have been used for breeding but am now spayed. My tail was docked very short and I had very little human interaction and no exercise. Because of this, I was a short, big girl-but things have changed. I have lost 30+ pounds since I came to my foster home and feel so much better! I am finally playing, as a Weim should. I’m parasite free and on heartworm preventative. All of my vet care is up to date.

Since I have lost weight and have had a chance to exercise, my back has become straighter and my belly muscles are helping get my Weimie figure back. I am still saggy in the belly area, but what old girl isn’t? I absolutely love my treats but need to stick with the veggies-carrots, green beans, etc. to watch my weight.

I love attention from both big and little humans. I love my bed and favorite chair, and sleep much of the time. I will want to lay in your lap (and get my way, hehe!). I also like to trot and explore. I love to go on car and truck rides. I really like to hunt, and I am relentless when I’m on a scent trail. I love going to the pond and creek to explore and swim. I also like rolling in mud, manure, and dead animals that I find in the woods and digging. Because of this I often get baths that I hate-I’ll take disposable dog or horse wipes to clean me up anyday! I like trash cans and can’t resist getting into them so it will be best that the trash can is behind closed doors at my forever home.

I’ve learned a lot since I came to my foster home. I’m officially potty trained. I sit and stay when I’m told in the house, (not so much outdoors where there are things to do but I am good about coming to you when called). I have never been left alone inside the house except with the other Weims. I’m not a chewer and haven’t destroyed anything in the house. I still am improving on the leash.

My foster parents tell me that I’m a good and loving girl. It would be best that I live as an only dog with no other animals-I get fussy with the others. I don’t like cats and other critters; I will do my best to get them regardless of where they are.

I lived in horrible conditions until I was rescued. I would like to be adopted by a family who lives in the country or has a large, fenced yard for me to explore. I want to be the center of attention and I will love you forever. Thank you for reading my bio and I hope to see you soon. I know there is a family out there for me and I am waiting patiently so I can live the rest of my life with them. 

If you are interested in me, please go to www.louisvilleweimrescue.com to complete an adoption application and one of the LWR volunteers will be with you soon.

Sincerely, Ms. Molly

If you’re looking for big personality along with a big ole body, then take a look at Lenny! This 1 year old, 100 pound Weimaraner came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner could no longer care for him. Lenny still has a lot of puppy energy and is working on learning some manners and how to control his massive frame. He’s definitely what we call “food motivated” and will work for snacks. He loves to learn and will be a great companion for someone with a little patience and love for this wonderful breed. Lenny is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. He’s just waiting on you!

Please contact Kentucky Humane Society about Lenny. More information in available here- kyhumane.org/adoptable-dog-details/?pet_id=52154171&pet_name=Lenny%20%28In%20Training%29



Hi I’m Hershel! If anyone has watched the Walking Dead, I was named after that character. I’m a beautiful blue male Weimaraner. I just had my 5th birthday on March 22nd. I originally was an indoor dog but have lived the past few years outside. In the past I did live with other dogs but I was the alpha male. I’m up to date on my vaccinations, heartworm negative and started on prevention, microchipped and neutered. At my foster home I’m an only dog and I really like that. I love having all the attention to myself. I like to play fetch and tug of war with my foster mom and teenage sister. I can get a little mouthy when I play so I probably should not live with little children as that may be taken the wrong way. I have a lot of energy, love going on walks, but also like to cuddle and have my ears rubbed. I’m learning about living in a neighborhood and am curious of all the noises and animals while on my walks but just pause to watch and listen. I am a great leash walker and will stay by your side. I’m curious about human food, but not a stalker or beggar. I’ll usually sniff then go lay down while you eat. I enjoy treats, but can be picky. I’m learning commands such as sit and down. I currently wear belly bands while in the house as I am learning which door to ask to go outside. I was previously housebroke when I lived inside the first few years of my life at my original home. Of course, I hear that anytime a new dog is introduced to a new home, they will make mistakes. You will have to treat me as a 6-week-old puppy in a big body until I learn which door to ask to go out. I’m smart, so it won’t take long. Please be patient with me. I am crate trained and sleep in my crate at night and do not cry. I also can be left alone in the house for short periods of time and be a good boy. I’m excited to find my forever home so we can go on lots of walks and cuddle together.
