Sending Out an SOS: Hunting Dog Garden Statues


Today's post is a bit of a call for assistance — in the form of, "we've looked everywhere and can't seem to uncover where a pair of these hunting dog statues can be found." Alas, in our fruitless hunt we're putting out a collective call (in our best Police voices) for your knowledge on all things dog statue related...

It all started during our morning walks around the neighborhood. Every so often, we'd venture a few streets out of the way to pass the house with a pair of weathered hunting dogs, that in their concrete finish very closely resemble a pair of Weimaraners (just like the roundup of images we've put together above). Their owners would dress them up for holidays and just generally they were a joy to see. You may recall seeing a few snaps of these dogs in one of our recent Fan Holiday House Tour roundups.

Then one morning Tim noticed they went up for sale on our Nextdoor social app for our neighborhood. It was at that point we realized we'd love a pair to either stand guard at our front entry, or keep watch over the back garden. Unfortunately, we were too late — the pair from our neighborhood had already been claimed, never to be seen again.

Since then, we've exhausted every combination of searches we can muster both online, at local garden centers and salvage yards. While image searches have returned exactly what we're looking for, we've had zero luck finding them available for purchase outside of past-due auctions. Perhaps we'll stumble across a friendly set in our future adventures, yet can't help but think we're just missing a source.

With that, do you or anyone you know hold the key for where to find these dog statues? And should you stumble across one or a pair in your own adventures, will you kindly keep an eye out for us?

  5. I found the dog statue at UK Amazon, if the helps. They call them Pointer Dog Statues. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005IDM8B8/ref=dra_a_rv_ff_fx_xx_P2000_1000?tag=dradisplay0bb-21&ascsubtag=c6d8153eef70b50ccd64518d9ec8736b_S
