Weimaraner Association of Canada – Rescue

Unfortunately, Ata’s results were not good. She had nasal cancer and quickly deteriorated. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 12 May 2021 surrounded by her loving foster family. Thank you for your support which allowed us to know what was afflicting this sweet girl. 

Ata’s Story:
Ata was surrendered to WAC Rescue due to potential issues with a new baby in the home. She had been kept in a kennel with another Weimaraner from the same home. At one point Ata was “adopted” by a family but they quickly returned her to the kennel when she started having nose bleeds. The other Weimaraner was taken home by the original family but Ata was left there for about 6 weeks.

Ata is currently being fostered by a wonderful family of experienced Weimaraner owners who love Ata very much. Her foster mom says “Ata’s nose drips blood all day and all night. I look at her and she is so happy that I don’t believe she is in any kind of pain…..but I am not a Specialist”.

Her weight is slowly coming back, however the nose bleeds have become more frequent. Her current medical expenses plus a nasal scope to try to determine the cause is estimated at over $2700. The concern is that it may be cancer, but until we know for sure, please help us help Ata in giving her the best care possible.

The results of the endoscopy came back and Ata had nasal cancer. She deteriorated quickly and crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 12 May 2021 surrounded by her loving family. 

We appreciate your continued support in helping relocate abandoned, mistreated or unwanted Weimaraners.

The WAC Rescue mission consists of relocating abandoned, mistreated or unwanted Weimaraners.

Notre mission de Sauvetage consiste à relocaliser les Braques de Weimar abandonnés maltraités ou simplement devenus indésirables.

We cannot take on mixed-breed dogs, however we can put you in touch with those groups that can.
