*Our newest litter, born May 1, 2017:
At Stud, “Linden’s Cobalt Blue Dog”
Cobalt is a magnificent “blue” Weimaraner who is admired by everyone who sees him. He has perfect conformation, and exhibits all of the typical characteristics of the breed: easily trained, loyal, obedient and affectionate with members of his household and not aggressive toward other dogs. He weighs 110 pounds and stands 28 inches at the withers. He has a wonderful coat that shines (literally) with good health.
Dam of current litter: “Linden’s Silver Girl”, kennel name “Sylvie”
Sylvie is a big beautiful silver Weimie. She has a lovely friendly temperament and she has proven very adaptable and obedient. She is 80 pounds and stands 27 inches at the shoulder. Her line derives from hunting dogs and all of her line were successful in field trials. Linden’s Silver Girl has delivered her second litter in late August. Some of these puppies are already obligated to prospective owners. If you are interested in one of the remaining puppies, please submit this application.
We are expecting another litter early in 2017 from “Sylvie’s” daughter, Linden’s Blue Mist. All of our puppies are guaranteed to be free of genetic issues for two years. They are docked and have dew claws removed within a few days of birth. They come to their new owners with their AKC application, a health certificate, six-week puppy shots, de-wormed, and with a microchip.
Our puppies have beauty, spirit, endurance, loyalty and obedience already embedded in their gene makeup. For more information about this or future litters or for an application please call or e-mail. Puppies are sold to approved homes only.
The breed was developed in Germany in the late 18th century as a hunting dog. Breeding was tightly controlled and litters were severly culled to ensure quality. Breeding pairs were not readily available outside of Germany until the 20th century, further ensuring quality of the breed and continued strict breed characteristics.
The Weimaraner is very obedient and easy to train. They are also very loyal and devoted to their owners. Don’t be surprised if your Weimie follows you into the bathroom or is “waiting” for you when you emerge after the shortest visit. They are, however, “noisy”. No visitor or car comes unannounced and Weimies bark very loudly until they are sure they know the arrival or until they are called off by their owner or leashed.
They are benign and gentle by nature, but as with all retrievers, they are “mouthy”. They have a soft mouth designed to allow them to retrieve and carry game without damaging the skin. In play with humans, they will often “mouth” the arm of their playmate or those they love. This can be disconcerting, but the only damage that might be inflicted is if you jerk your arm away. Cobalt “retrieved” a fawn while we were on a trail ride and came trotting down the trail with a small, bleating baby deer carried proudly in his mouth. When ordered to “drop it”, he laid it carefully on the ground and allowed it to leap off into the woods unharmed where we hope it found its mother.
Weimies are athletic and energtic and need exercise. Weimies who are not allowed adequate exercise become fat. Weimies who are confined alone without human companionship for long periods can indeed develop behavior problems and when that happens they can be very destructive.
