NOTICE TO POTENTIAL
WEIMARANER PUPPY BUYERS!
Be careful when purchasing a Weimaraner
puppy from "backyard puppy producers". Most of these people know
nothing about our breed and produce puppies solely for money. They do no
health or temperament clearances and if you run into a problem with the puppy,
they want nothing to do with you. Our club cleans up after irresponsible
backyard puppy producers when their pups grow up and get discarded!
if the breeders say their pups are not AKC registered because of some weird
reason RUN TO YOUR CAR! This means AKC has inspected them and
because their operation was filthy and/or substandard, they can no longer register
pups with AKC! Often they make up some lame story about how they "don't
use AKC because they support something or other" but the truth is they are
BANNED BY AKC!! The "puppy mill registries" do not inspect any of these
slime operations and will register anything submitted that pays their fee. Such
registries may include Continental kennel club, Pet Registry of America, Dog
Registry of America, National Kennel club etc, - all formed to get registration
money from those SUBSTANDARD operations who have lost AKC
registration privileges. GO TO:
1. Make certain both parents
have OFA or PennHip certifications proving that they do NOT have hip
dysplasia. Ask for a copy of these certifications (do not take their word
for it). If they have never heard of hip certifications or demean it,
run for the door!
2. Make certain that the dam
of the pups is over 2 yrs old and less than 7 yrs old, that the pups are over 7
wks of age and that the seller will refund your money should something go wrong with the puppy (full refund
within 90 days) or partial refund within 1 yr. Get it in writing.
Blue Weimaraners come from a black gene and this is a DISQUALIFYING
FAULT in the Weimaraner Club of America. Blue Weimaraners are NOT rare.
All Blue Weims are deliberately produced by puppy producers so they can dupe the
uninformed buyer. All it takes to produce blue pups is to breed a blue to
a blue or a grey to a blue or a grey to any black dog. It is UNETHICAL in
the Weimaraner Club of America to breed Blue Weimaraners.
If you really want a Blue Weimaraner
please contact the Texas Rescue organizations who are overloaded from
puppy mills with both blues and greys!
4. Here is a list of
HEALTH ISSUES in
fosters those dogs that can be salvaged, spays or neuters them and finds good
homes for them. Before going to a puppy producer, please consider adopting
a Rescue Weimaraner! If we don't have one for you then we can find one from
the Tarheel Weimaraner Club in Raleigh or from other Weimaraner Clubs.
IS THE WEIMARANER THE RIGHT BREED
FOR YOU? TAKE THIS QUIZ!
WCA ETHICAL BREEDERS
love our breed!
We are part of the nationwide
network of Weimaraner Club of America
local clubs; if we don't have a
breeder with pups in this area, we can contact many ethical breeders all over
the nation and find a quality puppy for you.
WCA Ethical Breeders have many years of
knowledge about our breed and belong to the Weimaraner Club of America where
they continue their education by involvement in Weimaraner seminars and
1. Ethical breeders have
OFA or PennHip certifications on the parents of their puppies proving that they
are free of hip dysplasia, many also have various other clearances such as
thyroid, heart, eye, elbows and stud dogs are DNA certified by the American
Kennel Club. Puppies are kept with their mother for at least 5 wks and the
litter is kept together and socialized until 7-8 wks of age before going to new
2. Ethical breeders will
provide a 3-5 generation pedigree, medical information, written instructions and
articles on the care and training of the new puppy, and sponsor your membership
to the Weimaraner Club of America. They will encourage you to learn about
the breed by joining the local Weimaraner club and attending training sessions
for obedience, show or field.
2. Ethical breeders want to
make certain that the puppy will be in a GOOD HOME above all else, and will work
with the new family to teach them about the breed and about the best type
Ethical breeders NEVER breed Blues or Longhairs. They plan their litters
and the only puppies that are deliberately produced are grey shorthaired pups.
Ethical breeders have worked and trained the dam of the puppies showing that
they are correct for the breed by earning their AKC championships. In
order to find the best match, often, the mother of the puppies has been bred to
a stud dog owned by another WCA member (sometimes all the way to California!), they
rarely breed their own dogs together. They try to find the best stud dog
for their particular bitch.
Most Ethical breeders have trained their dogs in the field, showing that
these dogs have the correct hunting instinct, and so they will have earned
several field titles. Quality puppies (depending on the breeding
and if show potential or pet quality) with champion parents should cost from $800-$2500.
Ethical breeders will always refund your purchase price or take the puppy back
at any age if the home doesn't work out because they know they are
responsible for bringing this puppy into the world and will be responsible for
the puppy for their entire life. They NEVER want their puppy to be in a
home where he isn't wanted!
