Alma mater comes from two Latin words Alma = soul and Mater = mother. Originally it was used by the ancient Romans to describe their Goddesses,
Luna, my first Weimaraner is the Alma Mater of our kennel (I say “our” because I got married with another weim-lover and we gave birth to another 4 weim-lovers that altogether share the same “grey passion”). As I was telling you, it all started with Luna. She was my inspiration and taught me everything about weims. She came into my life right after I lost my Mom. Since the first day, she was my shadow and the reason to wake up with a smile despite such a terrible moment in my life. She turned out to be so much more than I hoped for. She was Argentinian, Uruguayan, Latin American and International Champion and ranked #1 in Argentina. I was fortunate enough to have Luna as the foundational bitch for my kennel. She gave me and other breeders high-quality progeny in all aspects that represent the breed (conformation, temperament and health). She gave us several Champions and incredible pets.
Owning a weimaraner is a wonderful experience and a great addition to your life. Caring for it can teach children and adults to appreciate a terrific pet and to develop loving bonds that enrich the quality of life. Understanding your dog properly is the key to success in a healthy relationship.
In our case, they enrich our lives and we are here to help you to have a very nice experience with your gray ghost friend!
Weimaraner is talented in many areas, including hunting, tracking, retrieving, pointing, search and rescue work, obedience and agility. An intelligent breed! Weimaraners are quick to learn, eager to please and very obedient with proper training. Yes! Training is the key for your weim. It is a must and we can help you with that.
We pride ourselves in producing weimaraners found in the show ring, obedience trials, agility , field or on the couch.
Our goal with each litter is to produce healthy, mentally sound, good-looking puppies, hard workers dogs but who can relax in front of the fireplace at home when the day is done. Our weims are all titled (or on the way to being titled), and must show a stable temperament. In addition, all of our weims have OFA (Orthopedic Foundation of America) hip and elbow clearances before being bred. All of our weimaraners are DNA test by the University of California and are free for HYM, HUU and SD (pls read the important info below) Litters generally sell out in advance and reservations are recommended for your pup.
If you are looking for a first-class, healthy dog that you and your family will enjoy living with, please give us a call or email us. We are always delighted to meet Weim lovers! We give preference to working/companion homes, where your dog will be part of the family.
Pups come vet checked with first set of shots, health guarantee microchipped, CKC registered and lifetime of breeder support. Our dogs and puppies are raised as true members of our family. They are properly socialized with other dogs, farm animals and kids of all ages and are loved unconditionally!!!!.
It´s a passion we share and they brighten up our lives
Our kids love them and they love our kids!
Don´t tell anybody but once in a while we put a little bit of butter on our kids feet and it´s a game where the first one who moves their feet when the weim licks it , loses!
We have so much fun!!! We call it "laugh therapy"
And our weims enjoy it a lot!!!!
Nothing better that a nap with our weimaraners
but you must train your weim and teach your kids how to interact with them.
Hyperuricosuria (HUU) means elevated levels of uric acid in the urine. This trait predisposes dogs to form urate stones in their bladders or sometimes kidneys. These stones often must be removed surgically and can be difficult to treat. Hyperuricosuria is inherited as a simple autosomal recessive trait. The trait can occur in any breed and the carrier frequency within the Weimaraner breed has been estimated to be ~25%. A DNA test for this specific mutation can determine if dogs are normal or if they carry one or two copies of the mutation. Dogs that carry two copies of the mutation will be affected and susceptible to develop bladder/kidney stones.
This condition leads to tremors during puppyhood. The disease is inherited as a simple autosomal recessive disorder and the carrier frequency has been estimated to be 4.29% within the breed. Hypomyelination is also called ”Tremors” and “Shaking puppies” by dog breeders based on the fact that affected puppies have tremors when awake as early as 2 weeks of age. Clinical signs resolve in most cases by 3-4 months of age. Some of the dogs may have a mild persistent tremor of the hind legs.
Spinal dysraphism (SD) in Weimaraner dogs is a genetic disorder present at birth that results from faulty embryonic development. Affected Weimaraners have a defective spinal canal which leads to neurological abnormalities. Puppies born with SD may have difficulties starting to walk due to weakness of their rear legs. Adults with SD show a typical abnormal gait that includes simultaneous movement of the hind legs or “bunny hopping” in the rear. Additional characteristics include weakness and lack of coordination in the rear, together with normal front end coordination and strength. Rarely a “bunny hopping” gait is observed in the front.
