His kennel hadn't been cleaned in awhile and he was slip sliding in the mess as he went from one side to the other. He was quiet, his eyes soulful and filled with hope. Poor guy was found wandering the streets and captured by the animal control officer who told me personally he is 'such a good boy'. The shelter hit a dead end when the microchip came back to a number that was disconnected. Not to be deterred, our volunteer did a background on the number and located previous owner still registered to the now defunct chip. Voila'! A Facebook page revealed a nice family who now lived at least 6 hours north of our current location. She had sold Prince, now Dobby, to a family in the Inland Empire area who never updated his microchip. We still hit a dead end with current owner but now have so much more information on a boy we were not sure of. This is what she had to say: (long but worth the read!) 'He was such an amazing dog! Very sweet. I don't think I could say anything bad of him other than he was a bit clumsy, but cute. The previous owners he had right before we bought him said he had a little fear of being outside. We only kept him indoors because of that. Weimaraners are known to be escapists, in general and he was good at it if we did leave him out longer than 15 mins. He's great with other dogs, they soothe him. He's very loveable and loved cuddles. He was house trained. When we first brought him home we wouldn't pee or poop outside. He would scratch at the door to get in. It was a bit of struggle, but before having to give him up he would go outside and would not pee in our house. With us he had all his shots up to date, no medical issues. All the paperwork he had was given to new owners. We didn't have him very long either, only about a year, because of how sudden and fast my mother got sick. The shot clinic we did take him to it was more like pay $25 for shots and they would add the sticker of what shot he received on his shot record. That was given to the new owner, too. He hated to be in kennels..or those metal cages..it would freak him out. Sadly, we had to get rid of Dobby when my mother fell extremely ill. She had cancer and cirrhosis of the liver so we had frequent hospital stays and traveled far that we didn't have time for him. On top that I had become pregnant and was extremely sick and bed rested I couldn't care for him the way we had. He's such a great dog, he loved running in big fields!' Prince needs a nice forever home. Would be really nice if he had a new family to be thankful for for THANKSGIVING! Hit us up! We just want him out and safe! Currently fostered inb the San Marcos area of San Diego.
