Getting One Of Our Pups

Adult dogs available:

  • Kiah is a senior female that still moves and acts like she's 5! See our retired dogs page. She is great with kids and all humans, crate trained, kennel broke, yard broke, house broke (however an opportunist so trash and things she will sneak into). She is a great companion dog for humans, loves to hang out on the porch, or go run the forests and fields, a car ride or just cuddle and watch a movie. She must be an only dog and mostly home bound or taken to areas not frequented by dogs off leash as she was severely attacked in her younger years at an AKC hunt test and ever since has been unable to be around other dogs whatsoever due to fear aggression toward dogs. She is also one of our best hunters and therefore should not be around any small animals like cats, birds, rabbits, etc. unless properly and securely separate enclosures. She lived with my mom for 2 years recent and did great keeping her company but then she had to move into an RV, lost her yard and started working very long hours, which wasn't fair for Kiah so we have her back. If you're looking for a sweet dog that will just hang with you at home and enjoy the surround, or is up for a hike anytime, that is her easy going to do whatever you are doing personality. Yes she is 11 but fit as a fiddle currently and would love to be spoiled in her golden years. No homing fee just an agreement to care for her for her lifespan. Should it not be an ideal fit she comes back to us anytime.

  • Piper, adorable, affectionate, and vibrant 9yo female with lots of love to give and the happiest dog ever known (see our retired dogs page). Tail wagging, trotting around, usually with a ball in her mouth all the time. She is a special dog to us and love to see her in a companion home as she deserves to be doted over more now that she is retired. Gets along with most all dogs unless nasty attitude females then she will stand her ground. Leash trained, many voice commands, crate trained, pretty house broke but an opportunist, loves being outside in a yard (may need electric wire like we have as she will dig), loves house time too, car rides, hikes, up for absolutly anything, and is a total ball/fetch fanatic! Loves to hunt and very good at it so if you want to do that she is happy to. Not a barker unless alerted, not a whiner, and very obedient to commands. Loves puppies so if you are getting a puppy from us and want a nanny, she's your dog! She has raised all our yonger dogs. No homing fee just agreement to care for her for her lifespan. Should it not be an ideal fit she comes back to us anytime.

We place pups in all types of homes, pet/companion, hobby or competition hunting, agility or other sports, and show. We continually accept applications and place people on the wait this. Timeline would be upon breeding they will take about 63 days to whelp, and we will have the pups for 8 weeks. We get a lot of interest since we have been doing this 15 years so its best to get on our list as soon as possible to ensure you get a pup on the coming litter. Those that are involved in the process for a litter early will get a lot more out of the process such as almost daily photos so they can see pups grow and change while here, many emails of info throughout the process, and time to prep. By the time 8 weeks comes there will have been thousands of photos taken of which you can save want you want as well.

The Process:

  1. Read over our entire website to be sure we are the type of breeder for you and producing type of Weim for you.

  2. Email for an application to fill out and then email back for our review, this beginning of the process is to make sure our pups and you are a right fit according to the information given on past experiences, home type, activities, plans, etc. Upon our review of your information we will reply back. If all looks like a good match you will be added to the wait list, or if while have a litter then purchase agreement.

  3. Once on the wait list, upon heat/mating we will notify you of expected litter timeline and if the timing works for you then a deposit agreement and deposit payment will be completed. (Purchase deposit agreements are detailed with payment plans, guarantees and expectations of care).

  4. If at time of whelp we didn't have enough pups for you then you will go on the next litter list or get a refund, your choice.

  5. Pups will have photos and videos taken almost daily and families will have a link to the folder.

  6. Around 4-6 weeks we will provide a link to electronic documents to all the families to prepare for the puppy.

  7. Upon 5-7 weeks they will be exposed to a lot and lots of observation done by us as well as temperament testing, scent, birds, and other things will be introduced and their responses closely reviewed by us. Around the 7 week mark we will have all the assignments of which puppies go to which homes based on the application info given and other correspondence. We decide puppy placement as we are the ones that have had much more time to evaluate and any visit here or there is not going to give anyone a true encompassing understanding of any puppy. It's important that the high drive, natural use of nose, and intense natural interest in birds types go to the hunt homes, best built conformation go to show homes, and that homes with already an alpha female or dominant male don't end up with another, and kids homes get a pup that is not fearful of kid chaos, and sooo many other factors that go into matching puppy and home. For these and many other reasons is why we the breeders match puppies with homes since we see them daily for many hours not just glimpses in time. If you prefer to pick your own puppy then we are not the breeder for you.  

  8. Pick up schedule will be arranged for 8 weeks or after. Those that travel the furthest will get first choice of days and times. 

Our Expectations:

  • We expect that you make a commitment to giving our pups a safe, happy, healthy and caring FOREVER home upfront, no matter what!! You guarantee us that the dog will get all necessary routine care and daily exercise and you will seek professional training if ever needed. And that certain titles and health testing is done with particular outcomes before full rights/breeding can be done if that is your interest, and all pups are on limited rights until so. If you can't do this or refuse to make this dog lifelong commitment then please move on to someone with less expectation then. Those that give up dogs for selfish reasons are not the people we want our pups to end up with ever as rehoming them is heartbreaking for them and very hard to do.

  • We will additionally expect lifelong care, training with a pro trainer if issues should arise that it is necessary, and proper exercise.

  • All of our expectations are detailed out in the purchase agreement and pointed out on our application and this website, to ensure the our pups are properly cared for lifelong and the right people understand this and will agree.

Pups from us come with:

  • AKC Registered (Limited rights registration will be given with the ability to become full upon certain titles and health tests acquired)

  • NAVHDA & UKC and other registration applications available (if interested)

  • Health & genetics guarantee in contract, 72 hours life threatening sickness, 6 months birth defects, 2 years serious genetic issues.

  • Great Customer Service! We take 1000's of pictures during the 8 weeks they are with us, and keep in contact. Please visit the "other" page  for testimonials regarding our commitment to our puppies and puppy's families.

  • Lots of exposure - Pups will be exposed to small children daily from birth, and in the 6-8 week period will be exposed to many, many things. Good dogs are bred, but great dogs are made! So it is up to the new owners at 8 weeks to continue their socialization, build on training, and be committed to developing them into GREAT DOGS for the first year-2 years!

  • Pups are well cared for - Pups are in clean and sanitary, climate controlled environments, and at 5 weeks have an outdoor area they can venture. They will be pretty much litter box trained.

Option #1 is personal pick up, which we prefer most, but understand that is not always an option in fact we have shipped everyone of our dogs when we got them. There are a few more options.

Option #2 we will ship cargo flights that are direct or with very short 1 layover. This option is with Delta or United and runs about $250-400, plus a crate, and transport/vet paperwork is $100, and we charge $100 for the time and travel involved. 

Option #3 is for you to fly here to Portland PDX and take the pup back with you onboard the plane, which I can meet you at Portland Airport terminal if your turning around and going back same day or elsewhere if you are staying a night, and pet ticket on SouthWest is only $125 and requires no vet certs. I have a carrier you can borrow that fits under the seat in front space.

Option #4 if there are multiple pups going to the same general area a puppy carpool can sometimes be arranged especially to CA.
