Meet Massey, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. He’s a 2-year-old male Weimaraner from Wichita, KS. Massey is already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Massey’s Story:

Massey is a young 50lb boy approximately 2 years old. He is a wonderful dog that enjoys the indoors as well as the outdoors. He is keen and alert to calls and commands and he has shown great interest in natural quail scent from feathers. His nose works the breeze for scent as well as the ground. He has a natural curiosity for small creatures, be it feather or furbearing. His bite is “soft” which will be good for the retrieve, as well as his way of gently pulling by the wrist to direct you toward the pantry for his dog food.

He recently earned his BBO (Bachelor of Basic Obedience) at K9 University. He would love to continue his education at his forever home. Easily trained, he knows several commands, to include “kennel”, “down”, “here”, and “load”. He has been introduced to the lead and the “heel” command and is progressing in these elements. Massey can still be a little jumpy and will need to learn to control himself around small children.

Massey current foster home has four other Weimaraners and one other large dog. Massey is somewhat timid and he knows his place in the pack. He holds his ground when playing with the other dogs. He is good with cats. His temperament is excellent. He enjoys going for rides in truck, but he needs be in a kennel because he is wanting to take the steering wheel and go for a spin. His greatest joy is lying next to guardian, with his head rested on your thigh as he sleeps, dreaming about the days adventurers.

Massey was recently diagnosed with Addison’s Disease. Addison’s Disease is an endocrine system disorder that occurs with the adrenal glands fail to produce enough hormones for normal function. The treatment for this disease is a monthly injection of Percorten. Please speak with your vet if you have any questions about the cost of treatment and caring for a Weimaraner with Addison’s disease. Our medical coordinator is happy to answer any general questions, however treatment and costs can vary from vet to vet.
