"BYNIE" young Weimr /Lab (maybe some German shorthair?) mix- Oregon Weimaraner Rescue

ADOPTED!
Aug 2018

Available for Adoption with Oregon Weimaraner Rescue


Bynie's OWR weblink

UPDATE 8/11: Bynie is a camping champion. She has recently been on a four day camping trip and a separate three day hiking trip, she LOVED both. This beautiful girl is a total water dog who will launch herself into the river to retrieve a thrown toy, or she will launch herself just because she feels like it haha. Sleeping in a tent alongside two other Weims (and two humans) was no problem for her and she really performed perfectly in responding to our verbal commands. In day to day life things are going very well. Her continued training is making the wonderful side of her far more present than the puppy/jumpy/crazy side which is just awesome to witness. She sleeps in her wire crate without protest (when asked, usually she is just free at night) and willfully uses it as a safe place when she is tired of her other companions and needs a break. Bynie is a great dog who learns quickly and loves to get/give affection. If you are a dog savvy person looking to add an energetic member to their already very active lifestyle, Bynie would love to meet you. 

UPDATE 7/18: Bynie is now being fostered in Portland Oregon alongside three full time Weim residents. If you are looking for a dog who is very interested in pleasing and interacting with you, this is the girl. In person this gal is a sleek ball of energy who loves to be around people and play fetch. She knows basic commands and we are working on holding those commands beyond a few seconds haha. Bynie is a busy girl when out and about in the yard or park but when she is home she finds a way to keep her energy in check and not chew any inappropriate items (dog toys yes, everything else no). This sweet girl needs a lot of attention and affection to be happy (she lets this be known lol), but she is such a joy to work with and be around that it is no issue for the dog savvy. If you are looking for a companion who will love you absolutely, this is the one. Apply below to come out and meet her.
Bynie is a healthy two year old, 50#, spayed female, Weim/Lab mix with lots of character. Her early life was not ideal so although she is two and some months old, she acts more like a puppy than that because so much of the world is new to her :)  She has lots and lots of energy and needs an experienced and firm handler to help her continue directing that energy towards appropriate behaviors. Bynie is a fast-paced dog that requires absolutely someone who will work with her- she is eager to please but gets very excited and her enthusiasm requires active management.  
 ====

I have been with her for the last three weeks and have found playing fetch and her running in the backyard for a minimum of two hours per day is the key to success for all of her other quirks.  She is not an overly confident canine and could certainly benefit from continued socialization out in the world (case in point: in the first week in my foster home she would not walk on the grass or go outside without me by her).  I'm happy to report she is now going outside with my other Weim and using a dog door when needed.


Bynie will readily go into a wire crate when told to "crate".  She is really excited and will bark a lot when you leave/return and has tended to jump up when you first let her out, she has been getting better in the past week, especially if I wait until she sits and stops barking before opening the crate door.  She also seems to calm quicker when I refused to release, talk or face her.

She knows many commands such as sit, down, wait, toy, ball, rope, and waits until I say OK during feeding.  She eats very fast and her previous owner used a slowdown bowl which I have been continuing to use.

She needs to be crated or a barrier needs to be used in the car because she will immediately climb into your lap.

Bynie is an incredibly intelligent and exuberant puppy who could greatly benefit from being paired with a more seasoned canine companion to provide her both some behavior modeling and confidence in new situations.
CHILDREN: 10+(must be sturdy) 

CATS: No

DOGS: Yes

I am Chopper, a fun loving and energetic herding mix. Dogs like me love to get out and play but are not always sure what to do with our mouths. I can tend to get so excited I jump for the first thing I see, and the game is on! My ideal family will be active, patient and use positive training methods to help me become a more refined pup. I think working with a trainer would be a fun way for us to bond and learn together. I am eager to learn and can't wait to show you how smart I am! I can be reactive towards strangers, especially men and am looking for a home with low traffic and adult women only. Sorry, no kids. I have done really well with other dogs here at the shelter, but have a rough playstyle. If you have another dog in the home, I would like to meet them first. Please come and meet me today! I am in a quieter area of the shelter, so please ask a staff member to meet me!

"MAXINE" happy adoption Update!


Maxine - Happy Adoption Update!
Aug 2018

Maxine was originally available for adoption at MCAS then transferred to the Placement Partner
Tillamook County Animal Aide foster home to further heal her skin, and receive additional
training skills prior to adoption. 

Here is the Rescue group's Facebook posting for Maxine's adoption!

"⚜️MAXINE, you made it!⚜️ 🎀Our Maxine has found the end to her journey. She began as a "don't want anymore" dog at the Multnomah County Animal Services. She showed up in such poor condition it would have made most folks very upset, burning and balding skin all over her body. But so easiliy controlled!? Why? In any case, through a
transfer partnership, we brought Miss Maxine to TCAA here on the coast to give her even extra special attention and offer her some O-YA DAWGS training courses! After just a short time on our special "skin" menu and a few bathes at the hands of our caring volunteers, Maxine's skin/hair problems were almost at thing of the past! It really doesn't take much to turn a dogs skin around. ( If you know someone with a similar problem, message us! )
🧚‍♂️ As magic usually happens, the perfect person came into Maxine's radar and once hearing her story, never looked away. Maxine was her new favorite friend, her bestie, her BFF! YES!! Maxine is a Ball loving, toy taking, squeak obsessed ride or die girl and she has struck gold. WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR YOU MAX!!!
Love lots girly and live well! You'll never be neglected or shunned again! 🎁🎉

🔅Thanks to Multnomah County Animal Services for sharing trusting Miss Maxine with us, we've loved being a part of her story.
🔅HUGE thanks to Josif at Oregon Youth Authority Camp Tillamook Work Study Center for Boys for the dedication towards Maxine's awesome new set of skills she gets to take with her and keep in her life forever..
🔅AND THANK YOU TO OUR KENNEL SPONSORS!!! With your yearly support we are able to offer dogs, like Maxine, the opportunity to heal by feeding her a specific diet and vitamin regimen as well as a few other tips and tricks. Max's tail wags for YOU TOO!"
 "Available for adoption - Tillamook County Animal Aid, Rescue!

"We absolutely LOVE her!"  BAPBR

Maxine's Tillamook County Animal Aid Rescue's petfinder link
 
Maxine is a young adult Pitty girl who came to us from a large city shelter. We took her on so that she could enter our O-YA DAWGS obedience training camp, which she is enjoying!

About 4 years old, our young Maxine is crazy for toys! She's very motivated to play play and play! She enjoys all types of toys and will carry her toy around and play Keep-a-way with you until you eventually give up. Maxine is "down for anything". She loves to go for walks, she loves to play hard, ride in the truck, go on adventures or just stay home and cuddle on the couch! As long as she's with someone who loves her, she's happy.

Maxine does well with cats and kids. However, with any young pitbull, we recommend children over the age of 8 and children who are taught to respect the boundaries of this breed and no rough-housing. We want her to be set up for success! She ignores cats appropriately but it doesn't hurt to use caution when introducing any new dog to a cat. They'll need to learn each other's boundaries.

Maxine would like to be your only dog. She does not show signs of dog aggression, but she does have some space concerns. She'd do much better in a home where she is your "baby" and gets all of your love and attention. Again, we want to find her a home where she'll succeed. Besides, Maxine is ENOUGH dog! She'll keep you plenty busy!

As stated earlier, Maxine has a bad case of Malassezia Dermatitis. That means she has a severe yeast infection that plagues her whole body from her gut to her skin. However, this is treatable and manageable with consistent care, and high-quality grain-free food. We are treating her with homeopathic remedies and she is on Vet prescribed medication. She'll need several baths a week and special skin care. Her hair will eventually grow back. However, none of these issues damper her spirit! She is as happy as can be. Just imagine how happy she'll be completely healed.

Hi! My name is Cash, a 4 year old Lab mix. I came into the shelter as an owner surrender, and I am learning it is not such a scary place. I've been pretty timid so far, and I am looking for a family of my own that will understand that and my boundaries and give me time to come around to them. As well as new people, I am not always so sure of strangers, but with positive reinforcement training I will come around! When I get to know you, I am super playful. I like to jump in the pool and I get the zoomies, and I LOVE belly rubs as well! I walk well on leash, know the commands: "sit", "down", "stay", and come, and am definitely smart enough to learn more! I would need my new home to have no other dogs as I have had some bad experiences in the past. I'm a great pup that is looking for my forever home, ask to meet me today!  4 yrs 11 mths, 48 lbs

Thank you Molly and Zoey for helping get pics with Cash today!









here's Cash last week, way more nervous but still wanting to engage -
he's great!

I am Beastie Boy an active and playful Pitbull mix. I am about 3 years and weigh around 62lbs. You could call me the hands-on type but since I do not have hands I learn with my mouth. To an exuberant dog like me everything is a game, sometimes I just get so excited I will jump on people. Some manners training and appropriate equipment to make walks enjoyable will help set me up for success. Any kids in my new home should be 12 & up. My new people should not have cats or small dogs.
