Thread Name: Dog stories....
Subject: RE: Dog stories....
Hi Mary........I've heard others say that too about weimies, but I've never had anything but wonderful, docile dogs. They need exercise, but many are major couch potatoes when given the chance. The breeder at the website I gave above commented to us and I see its on her site too, that they tend to pick up the "tone" of the house. On the other hand, they are prized for their intelligence, but mine have all been lovable idiots. The Bassett Hound Karen had when we married was THE hardest headed dog I have ever seen.

While we're all talking dogs here, until I got on the net a few years ago, I had no idea there were so many "Breed Rescues." I knew they existed for Greyhounds and Dals (too popular=too much bad breeding and too many unwanted dogs) but was unaware that they exist for almost all breeds. They are very dedicated folks in general and very particular if you want to adopt one of the rescued dogs. If you can find one close for a breed you are wanting, its a great way to go.
