Earlier in April a trio of adopted dogs Hercules, Snoop, and Ophelia left Lifeline Dog Rescue for separate forever homes. Each has a loving family to care for them which makes us happy (and somewhat sad) to see them leave. Happy tails!
Hercules, a 2 year old male Weimaraner, was adopted by Rich and Teri and plans include walks, the park, the dog park, swimming, and travel.
Snoop, a 10 year old male Weimaraner, was adopted by Susan and Robert and recreation includes walks, the dog park, shopping, and travel.
Ophelia, an 18 month old female American Bulldog Mix, was adopted by Marc and Maria and will go for walks, the park, plus always have someone home.

Another rescue dog was adopted this week and the future holds a wonderful life in a big family for female Weimaraner Bambi. She has human parents, a human sister, a canine sister, and a family cat.
Bambi was an owner surrender rescued from a public shelter and arrived at Lifeline heartworm positive. Treatments from August to October concluded with a clean bill of health.
Bambi was never listed on the main site for adoption because she was chosen and reserved during evaluation.
Her new family “fostered” Bambi during the last stage of her heartworm treatment. The transistion from homeless to adopted was made easier, plus she became acquainted with her new humans, doggy sister, and kitty cat family members.
Read additional details of the Happy Tails listing for Bambi on our main site.
A big thank you, again, to Joe, Mariza, and family for adopting Bambi into her new forever home. We are truly grateful for the time you took to foster Bambi leading up to the formal adoption.
Happy tails to all.
Our purebred female Weimaraner Dita was adopted this week and lives with her forever family in a single family home in Central Florida. Read additional details on our main site Happy Tails listing for Dita.
Dita was originally an owner surrender due to lack of time because of changes in their work schedule and business trips.
She knows the commands sit, stay, and down, plus enjoys playing fetch, swimming, walking, the dog park and car rides. Dita can look forward to more family time now, and has already taken the plunge getting used to the family pool shown above.
That amazing photo of love being shared with Dita in her new home was taken by Jack using the timer function on his camera. Well done!
Lifeline staff will miss our girl, yet are so happy to see how well she fits in already. Thank you again, Jack and family, for choosing to adopt our lovable female Weim Dita.
Our sweet and friendly Maggie, a 4 year old female purebred Weim rescue dog, wears a big smile after she snags a forever home. She was adopted yesterday, Monday 24 September 2012, and her new human mom sent us this photo.
Home is on the west coast of South Florida, and the gorgeous single family house includes a fenced yard.
Katherine reports that Maggie did well her first 24 hours. She owns her business, and after a real good first night, she took Maggie to work with her and will again every day. Maggie was well behaved laying on her bed next to Katherine’s desk.
Katherine has experience with the Weimaraner breed, and chose Maggie because she misses her Weim that died, and wanted another Weimaraner because “they are such good companions”. When not at work, Maggie can look forward to plans that include walks, the dog park, swimming, boating, and shopping.
Thanks again, Katherine, for choosing to adopt our sweet and lovable Maggie! We wish you many years of happiness sharing new memories together with Maggie.
Happy Tails all!
Our sometimes goofy and very entertaining male Weimaraner rescue dog was adopted this weekend as Kibou joins a family with Weims. Lifeline Dog Rescue will miss our very special 3 year old, yet he now has a forever home with a human brother and two Weimaraner sisters.
Perry and Kathy plus son Zach pose behind Kibou (red collar and leash) at Lifeline Dog Rescue with Weim sister Jazz (blue collar) and Bella (hiding behind Kibou). The family has had Weimaraners going back more than 15 years, male and female, and wanted a younger companion for their 2 senior Weims.
Companionship is very important. Perry and Kathy have rescue cats, too, but the real bonding is between the dogs. Bella has health issues and looking ahead for a companion for Jazz now is a matter of being realistic.
We are actively pursuing the adoption of a young male. Jazz is a dog that does very poorly by herself for ANY length of time. While she IS a princess and a bit of a loner; she needs to know when the humans in her family are not home, that she has a buddy lying next to her; and felines don’t count.
Kibou will fit right in. He’s great with other dogs, children, and strangers. Kibou enjoys baths, grooming and nail trimming, plus going for walks and the dog park. He is crate trained, housebroken, comes when called, walks on a lead, and plays fetch.
Readers may read other details of the Happy Tails story for Kibou on our main site, too.
Thanks, again, to Perry and Kathy for bringing their entire family to Lifeline to meet Kibou, and sharing stories of your history with Weims.
We know Kibou fills a special place in your lives, and wish you Happy Tails and best of health for everyone!
Another friendly and lovable rescue dog has left Lifeline as we announce the adoption for Luca the male Weimaraner purebred. Luca went to his forever home on the east coast of Central Florida over the weekend. It was love at first sight.
Chuck and Cheryl have experience with Weimaraners and understand their special needs including an active lifestyle and plenty of exercise. When they met Luca at Lifeline Dog Rescue they enjoyed playing fetch and instantly bonded with Luca who showed true affection for both. On their adoption request form they wrote:
We recently lost our wonderful large boy, Jack, very suddenly. The vet could not tell if he got into something toxic or if he contracted a disease or had something coming on over time that became acute. It was devastating to us because he was so loving and just a handsome big boy. He weighed approximately 90 lbs. and was very tall and long.
We know we can never replace Jack but we fell in love with Weimaraners and want another one in our lives. We know they need lots of exercise and so do we. That’s no problem. We have no children and the dog is our family. We are interested in Luca because he appears to have many of the same characteristics we found in Jack.
The adoption for Luca the male Weimaraner is certainly ideal. As the new parents stated “…the dog is our family.” Luca can look forward to being a faithful companion for walks, the park, the dog park, swimming, and travel.
Thanks, again, to Chuck and Cheryl for choosing to add Luca to their family. We are confident of a very happy future in his new forever home which overcomes any sadness we feel seeing him leave. Readers may want to read the Happy Tails story for Luca on our main site, too.
We wish you many long years of happy experiences and memories as you continue to bond and get closer in the future.
Another Weimaraner was adopted this week from Lifeline Dog Rescue with a great future and active lifestyle for Ella the Weim. Lifeline staff truly appreciates this latest happy tails, and especially meeting Ella in the pouring rain!
Ella is shown above with Diana at Lifeline Dog Rescue the day they met. After getting acquainted and finalizing the adoption, the skies opened up with torrential rain just when it was time to leave. When possible we like getting photos of the special new family moment, so this was taken in the car as Ella and Diana were leaving.
Diana had commented earlier on her adoption request form about her choice of a Weimaraner.
I am in love with the intelligence and personality of the Weimaraner breed. I jog daily and want a dog to go with me. Good for both of us. I am also close to a dog park that allows for free run, and usually train my dogs off leash. They learn to come along on a bike ride and I take them wherever I go. I love their companionship.
Ella loves swimming, walking, the dog park, and car rides. She is crate trained, housebroken, comes when called, and walks well on a lead. She will truly enjoy jogging each day and the freedom to play off leash in the dog park.
Thanks again Diana for opening your home, heart, and life to make Ella your faithful companion. We wish you both many happy trails and a life building fond memories in the future.
Bella the female Weimaraner has a new home on the west coast of Central Florida that includes human parents and another Weimaraner. She is shown in the photo below with parents Jennifer (left) and Sandy (right), plus her new Weim doggy sister Diver.
The family adopted Bella when looking for a playmate for Diver after the recent passing of their other Weimaraner dog. Home is a single family property with a 50 x 150 foot fenced back yard, so Bella and Diver have plenty of room to romp, exercise, and play.
Recreation plans include road trips to the park, dog park, plus swimming and boating! Readers may want to see the Bella Happy Tails listing here for more details.
This is the third Lifeline Dog Rescue adoption for a dog named Bella. She is best known for being featured in a dog rescue mission video (here) involving volunteer pilot non-profit organization Pilots n Paws.
Thanks again to Sandy and Jennifer for choosing our sweet and lovable Bella to join their family. We wish you all the best, and hope that Bella and Diver are happy playmates for many many years to come.
This dog rescue report is about the amazing female Blue Weimaraner Sasha who was found near death last March as a stray in Texas. As a stray she was nameless, so Lifeline called her Sasha.
This report outlines what is likely the best 6 months of her life!
Here is a before photo taken in March 2012, and after photo more recently less than 6 months later.
For now, view the photo of Sasha (above, left) to count each rib and her hip showing just skin and bone. Her face is thin and gaunt, plus her left eye is swollen and red with conjunctivitis. Sasha is obviously emaciated, deyhydrated, and must have been scrounging for food and water for weeks.
That before photo was taken at animal control. Less obvious in that picture were Sasha’s acute medical conditions. She was infested with ticks and fleas, tested heartworm positive, and was bloated due to overfeeding at the shelter which is dangerous.
Starved dogs need to be fed more often yet very small amounts in the beginning.
The first 24 hours of day one at the veterinarian was the critical period. On day two she was reported as doing fine, eating and drinking, and normal eliminations, yet they stated in their daily notes that her “stool was a bit soft and had bits of black and white plastic in it”.
Sasha spent two weeks at the veterinary clinic before she would be well enough for private home care.
Today is a different story. View the healthier Sasha in the photo (above, right). Her eyes are healthy and her face is full from ongoing medical treatment and proper diet.
Sasha has escaped near certain death due an outpouring of support. She is currently in foster care, yet Sasha has now been listed for adoption. A special thanks goes out to Kathy the foster Mom in Texas for taking such great care of Sasha.Lifeline Dog Rescue played a major life saving role in cooperation with individual volunteers, Fort Worth Animal Care and Control, Family PetCare of Fort Worth Texas, and Weimaraner Rescue of North Texas in making this happy ending come true.
In addition, a long list of animal advocates made generous donations for her rescue, treatment, and recovery. Here’s how Lifeline became involved.
We responded to an urgent plea from a local individual volunteer in Texas, and then spoke with animal control and provided credentials to have her pulled.
When she was released her truly critical condition became known. In no way was she fit for transport.
Sasha needed immediate emergency medical treatment, so the only choice was to have her taken to a vet in Texas.
During this time, Weimaraner Rescue of North Texas contacted Lifeline Dog Rescue because they had committed to pulling Sasha that same day.
The animal control staff may not have realized two rescues were ready to help. We said “yes” because they told us she needed help immediately that day – that hour.
In communicating with the Texas rescue group later it was decided they would take over the medical care, rehab and foster, and eventual adoption for Sasha.
Lifeline stepped up and paid all the initial veterinary bills for her two week stay and treatment at the vet. Upon release, Sasha was left in very good hands.
We are extremely grateful to Kathy the foster and Weimaraner Rescue of North Texas for their help rewriting a happy ending to the story of the Amazing Female Blue Weim Sasha.
Thanks to all those involved in her rescue, Sasha will never face a diet of plastic scraps again.
