This is where we are placing all the dogs we've listed so that their individual stories are not lost. We continue to send our thanks to those who work in rescue and those who assist by taking these dogs into their families. PLACED indicates the dog was in Rescue and a home was found for them to be placed into. FOUND indicates the dog was lost and then found. Hopfully we've also removed all references to how to contact people as these dogs no longer require assistance.(To assist Rescue Efforts please see the Vizsla Mall to find items for sale that benefit rescue.)
PLACED 4 August 2005 9 April 2002 I am Cindy, a Vizsla lover and supporter in Charleston, West Virginia, trying to place a pure-bred Vizsla, Kodi. Kodi is pure-bred, sweet and handsome! Kodi's and Diggi's owner, Dottie, has developed an illness and must move to Chicago with her daughter. That is why we are trying to place her loving Vizslas. The vizslas are in Hurricane, West Virginia, which is right outside of Charleston, West Virginia. We need to place the dogs asap, but definitely by April 13, when Dottie must be out of her home. Kodi is eight years old. He was born July 5, 1993. His name, Kodi, means mystic shadows in Hungarian. Kodi is very loving and very dependent on his person. He is headstrong and does not like to be left alone for extended periods. He is somewhat of a lapdog and loves kissing and affection. He was not crate-trained and, consequently, does not do well in a crate. Kodi is an inside dog who likes to sleep in bed. He is very-well house-trained and goes to the bathroom in a fenced in yard. His new home should be one that will allow him to live inside and he should be taken out in a fenced in yard or on a leash only, as he is not familiar with cars and the streets. He is not neutered. Kodi is great with small children and with other dogs. He is a bit shy with strangers (people, that is). Sometimes when people come he goes to the bedroom and lies down. He is a friendly dog, but does best in small groups of people, not roomfuls of people he does not know. Kodi has lived with cats, but we think it would probably be better for him not to be placed with cats, as he acts a bit curious around cats. Kodi was bred in St. Charles, Missouri both of his parents were champion Vizslas, including his dad who won best of breed at Westminster. His Mom was from Hungary. His brothers and sisters all have their championships. Kodi was a certified search and rescue dog. He was on standby for Oklahoma City, but did not end up going. Kodi has his AKC papers. Kodi loves to play ball and likes dog toys to chew on. Kodi had obedience training, agility training, and used to love to go up and down a slide. Attached are pictures of Kodi. They say a picture speaks a thousand words. Looking at Kodi, I think you cal tell how sweet, gentle, and loving he is. He is a wonderful little guy.
PLACED 21 January 2005 20 December 2004 My name is Freddy and the rumor is that I'm a Vizsla mix - possible Vizsla/Lab or Golden Retriever mix. I'm about 2yo, housebroken and quite the cuddler. My shots will be updated, my tail is undocked tail, but I'm neutered. I'm a sweet boy and just happy to be somewhere! They found me wandering around a construction site, but my old family let me stay in their house since I am housebroken - whatever that means.
FOUND 20 January 2005 "I have GREAT NEWS! Julep is safe and sound at home! I took the tip to check out the general area yesterday. I originally intended to do the door to door gig. But when I got there it was soooo overwhelming, how much area there was to cover. I decided that instead, I would stand on the corner with my big Lost Dog poster and hope for the best. What a dificult thing that was to do (emotionally). So many faces of passer-bys turning into frowns at the sight of her missing. A couple hours later, a girl pulled over and said that she and her boyfriend spotted a dog running around in that area just last week. I figured, the sign is working and I'm getting closer. Hours later, the sun starting to go down, car headlights being turned on, I started wondering when I would have to give up and call it a day. And no sooner, a man pulled over and said" I think I know where your dog is. Come a bit closer so I can see the picture better. Yep, that's her, my friends found her and have her at their house. Follow me." I almost jumped out of my skin. I followed him a few blocks away from where I was standing to their house. They were a very nice, warm, caring family with 3 kids, a cat, and a dog. They opened up the back door, and in comes Julep. She practically tackled me to the floor and licked my face so clean, I won't have to wash is for months. I am so happy, and so greatful for all the help and support that everyone, (especially you Kate), have given me through this ordeal. If it weren't for your involvement, Michael would never have found me, and I would never have know what area she was in. Love to all, Randy 18 January 2005 LOST 2 year old FEMALE Vizsla. Rust color, no collar or distinctive markings. She is about 45 pounds and was lost in the Kent, Washington area. IF YOU SEE her or know where she is PLEASE CONTACT - Randy Thanks, Kate Olson Puget Sound VIzsla Club.
FOUND 12 July 2004 "We found Lucy tonight. She ended up in someone's backyard (about 2 miles from our house) and no longer had her collar. A police officer was in the neighborhood on an unrelated matter and so the homeowner told the police a dog had wandered into his yard. The officer had seen our flier around town and actually had one in his car. (I had dropped a few off at the police station just in case since I figured they are always driving around the neighborhoods). He recognized her and called us immediately. We picked her up within an hour of her ending up in this person's yard. Thank you so much for you help and kind thoughts!" Patti Larsen 9 July 2004 When the fireworks started on July 4th, our dog took off and we can't find her anywhere. She's really friendly, was wearing a black leather collar with flowers and had license tags and our phone number tag. Ran off at Bridge Rd & Collier. Near MacArthur & Estudillo. Vizsla, female, 50 lbs., named Lucy, reddish-brown, short hair. Please let us know if you find her. Last possible sighting: Wed. July 7 on E. Merle Ct off Dutton, near Roosevelt school near San Leandro, CA. To see a picture of Lucy go to http://www.craigslist.org/eby/laf/35794334.html Patti Larsen (510) 614-9821
2 April 2004: Good News! Sydney is back home! After spending 29 hours outside on her own in the rain, a woman in Dorchester found her in her back yard crying, wanting to come inside out of the rain. The woman took her in and called me as Sydney was playing with her teacup chihuahuas! She is home now and she is sleepling in her very own bed. 31 March 2004: Our 14 month old female Vizsla escaped from our dogwalker today Wed, 3/31 at approximately 10:00am. Her name is Sydney and she is 42 pounds with a small patch of white on her chest. She was lost in the South End of Boston, MA. We have spent the day and evening searching everywhere for her, but it has been raining all day and we are afraid she is hiding somewhere dry and she is very afraid. We will pay a reward for her return. We are devastated and miss her so much, we just want our baby to come home. We can be reached at 617-733-6120 or 978-697-6441. Julie and Tim Mackie
1 March 2004 I am happy to annouce that he has returned. A neighbor of ours found him about 2a.m. in West Bridgewater cold, scared, and tired. He had been loose running around the woods for almost 6 hours. He is a tired boy. I thank you for your response and your intrest to help find him. If there is ever a time when someone else looses their dog please let us know and we will be happy to help. Thank You. 25 February 2004 My name is Jason Cambra. My male vizsla (Mylo-2yrs) was lost 2/24/04 he went out to pee in our fenced in back yard. I noticed that he had escaped some how and was in the neighbors yard. When I cut through the house to see him he was gone. I too will pay a large reward for information leading to his return. He was our first dog we drove all night looking for him with no luck, calls were made to local and surrounding police, animal control, pet hospitals, and MSPCA. He was like our child. He only had his house collar on which was multi-colored with earth tones. He was recently neutered 18 Feb 04 so there will be a fairly new scar on his privates.
30 November 2003: With saddness
we report Gundy's death. 25 Nov. 2003: Gundy took off we think
after some deer last night around 5:30pm and never returned. We were out
searching all the wooded areas and neighborhoods almost all night and again
this morning. We are devastated and need as much help as possible , we are
out in the woods again searching and I don't want to wait too long. So I
am sending you a picture of Gundy to send to any one and any organization
that you think could help in our search. We are desperate to find her so
anything you can do we would deeply appreciate it. And pray for her / us
that she finds her way home. Gundy , 3 Year Old Vizsla (runt) , she weighs
40 lbs. Thanks for any all help!
PLACED 2 November 2003 A lot of you have been interested in Cooder's story and I've lost track of all who inquired or sent wishes for him so I'm sharing the news here in the hopes that the good news will find you all. Many of you got to meet Cooder at the nationals in Arizona last fall. In December he found what we thought was a wonderful home with two V sisters, a chance to hunt some and a couch to snooze on but after 6 months he started fighting with the alpha bitch in the household and last June he came back to rescue. Last week, one year after being rescued from a Boise shelter, Cooder found what we think is truly his forever home and moved to Washington state. He has a 4-yr old v/lab sister who wasn't too sure about him at first but he INSISTED she play with him anyway and after an hour of running, rolling & leaping they both piled into the car and he barely looked back at me.... which is the way it should be :). I feel confident that his new mom & dad will be able to work through whatever issues come up and that Cooder is finally home. Just wanted everyone to know that all your good wishes have been much appreciated and well spent!!! 16 June 2003 COODER is a handsome 8-yr old, three-legged purebred Vizsla looking for someone to love him as much as he loves life! He was found running loose at a shopping mall and his owner never came for him. He found a wonderful home in Montana but after 6 months of getting along fine with everyone he decided he wasn't going to take anymore crap off the alpha bitch in the household so he is back in Idaho and again looking for his retirement home. He is confident & outgoing and to see him run you wouldn't know he has only three legs as he runs like the wind. He lost his leg due to an injury when he was 3-yrs old but it doesn't slow him down and he is a healthy, active 8-yr old. Proper exercise and weight management will be important for this guy. He is manageable with cats, loves kids but is too rowdy for young children and will do best as an only dog. He doesn't have a nervous bone in his body- wiggly ones yes, but not nervous! If you think the missing leg will slow him down... think again! He's just positive the best years of his life are ahead of him and is looking for someone to share them with.
FOUND4 September today, around 6:30 am we received a phone call from the person that found our dog. He is already home (were he belongs!) thank you. 2 September: Lost in South Lebanon Township (Lebanon, Pennsylvania). Three year old neutered male. he suffers from allergies, needs his meds. If you please can post this ad, we are heart broken. Thank you. Georgina Klahr, Tel. 717-279-6469
29 August Just wanted to share the great news! Boone-Doggie, the elder
statesman Vizsla from South Texas, has found a wonderful home! Boone has
gone to live with a great family in Houston, TX. He will have all the attention
he craves, as his new "Mom" is a stay-at-home-mom and home schools
her son. The little boy is SO in love with Boone and of, course, Boone is
happy as a clam with all the constant attention. He also has a pretty female
dog-pal to play with (both are 'fixed') who is near his age and the family
Cat who Boone contantly stares at and large area to play in. Not that Boone
will ever know how big 'his' yard is - he stays in the house with his new
family! As I mentioned in his story I posted in the beginning, he has the
art of Couch Potato down to an art!!! I want to thank all of you that responded
about wanting to adopt Boone and all the fabulous rescue people out there
for the referrals and helpful info in order to help Boone find the best
home possible! Thanks to EVERYONE so very much! This Vizsla community that
we all are a part of is one of the best groups of people (and OF COURSE
Vizslas) ever. I am always so grateful for the information we all share,
the joys and sorrows, and everything in between wih our Vizslas. Thank all
of you so very much again! With much gratitude, Karen Sullivan 11 August
2003 Boon-Doggie (on the right) came to my ex-husband by way of a phone
call from a gentleman who had friends in a rural area outside San Antonio,
Texas, who had 2 dogs wander up to their place. One was an older male Vizsla
and the other a Border Collie. The Vet said that Boon-Doggie appeared to
be in good health - Heartworm negative - Updated Vacc's - the typical once
over. Boon-Doggie, weighing in at 62 lbs., appears to be approximately 8-9
years old with the distinguished greying on his muzzle and all four paws.
He has a properly docked tail, his declaws removed and has been neutered.
Boon has a very sweet disposition and absolutely loves people. This guy
has the art of "Couch Potato" down to a science! There is nothing
in this world that he loves more than to put his head in your lap and have
his ears scratched! - Well, maybe he loves the belly rubs more when he falls
over and turns his tummy up - the jury is still out on this one. I find
it really difficult to resist those expressive, soulful eyes of his! He
is very people oriented - He is accustomed to the house and is house-trained.
He presently sleeps in a crate at night (as long as he gets his bedtime
treat) and uses the doggie door which his foster sister, Rika, taught him
to use.Boon-Doggie knows his "sit", "down", "come"
and "No". He also walks very well on lead and is very good when
called to come if off-lead. I get the impression that his former owners
taught him some obedience, but were short on the affection-factor. He is
learning to play with other dogs and really loves being around his foster
sister V. He does not like it one bit being locked outside alone and will
climb fences in order to get to an entrance to the house, where he absolutely
prefers to be. Good news is Boon doesn't attempt to climb or escape when
he has a dog-pal around and they are outside together. Boon-Doggie has a
wonderful baritone voice and when he plays, he "talks". The sound
is similar to a growl, but not being aggressive - he just makes deep grunting
sounds. I have found that he does need to be introduced to a group of new
dogs gradually, as he is insecure and will low-growl to establish his boundaries
until he is more comfortable with his surroundings. One on one with any
of the dogs he's been introduced to was just fine - A bunch of them at once
is intimidating for him.We have exposed him to various situations - Dog
Show, Play Days, travelling in the truck (loves to ride!), vacuum, kids,
outside cafes, nail grinder (he went to sleep while I did his nails with
my Dremel), and other everyday situations. Seems good in these areas - just
needs a little space to be comfortable with lots of other dogs around. He
definitely is a counter-surfer. Not too hard for him, as his nose can easily
poke right up to the counters edge. He responds well to a good "No"
and he'll get down. At least he's a polite counter-surfer. He doesn't bark
much either. Thought that was interesting for some reason. Hasn't chewed
anything I know of. Also didn't seem very interested in toys or bones. Boon
is just a sweet, older guy who wants and needs a good family to love him
- alot. He deserves lots of love and attention.
PLACED 11 June 2003:Chance will be going to his new home with Deb and Jim Sharp and their vizsla Jake in Austin, Texas this month. Although he has shown improvement in his socialization skills, he will still need a lot of work which I'm sure the Sharps and the Austin vizsla community are very capable of. The one area Chance has excelled in is how to be a vizsla. He loves to stick his head in the refrigerator since he has learned that food is stored there. He also likes to lick the water off the shower floor after someone takes a shower. Hearing ice being dispensed from the refrigerator door sends him flying into the kitchen to beg for a piece of ice.Chance cannot get enough petting and will sit forever while you pet him. And he LOVES to play. He is also learning how to counter surf but the slickness of the linoleum on the kitchen floor keeps him from being too good at this yet. Chance would like to thank everyone for bringing him to the US!15 May 2003: Chance is a purebred vizsla but has the paws of a Great Dane. I've never seen such big paws on a vizsla! He is still rather skinny, has dandruff, many small scars on his body and legs, a botched tail docking (looks like someone started to cut it in one place but actually docked it in another), calluses on his elbows from laying on hard surfaces, and is intact. He is like any adolescent male and likes to mark but neutering should take care of that. He runs like a giant breed puppy -- all legs and elbows. He is not very coordinated and still has not gotten the hang of walking on linoleum. He is VERY affectionate once he has determined you are OK. Being the object of his affection is rather like having a linebacker hit you. <BG> He has no manners or training and will need a lot of work. He is also very mouthy but eases up as soon as you squeal. He seems to be adjusting well. I have a vet appointment for him next week to be neutered, nails trimmed, heartworm test, and complete blood panel to make sure his emaciated condition didn't affect any of his organs. I think he may just like his new life in America! 9 April 2003: Chance" is a vizsla on the island of Cyprus who needs our help. The picture is rather shocking and shows the condition he was found in 3 weeks ago. Although his condition has improved, he is not considered an adoptable dog in that country. He is extremely nice natured and responds to kindness and affection. His tail is docked which is not apparent from the photo. His colouring in the picture appears darker than actual. "Chance" needs your help to immigrate to the United States.
PLACED 15 May 2003: Tigger has been adopted by someone in Colorado. 22 April 2003:Tigger was picked up as stray and unclaimed from the Heber UT shelter. He is approximately 4-yrs old, 55 lbs, tail docked, dews removed. The shelter named him Tigger and it doesn't take long to figure out why. He can jump vertically in the air and look you straight in the eye! When put in the back yard for exercise, he of course would rather be inside with us, so he just "bounces" at the back door until we let him in. He is a total love and we can't believe his previous owners didn't care enough about him to find him. His personality is typical Vizsla as loves to be with his people and thrives on attention. Tigger gets along fine with the other dogs in the foster home but his main focus in life is humans so while he likes other dogs as companions he would also love to be an only dog to get the attention he so wants. Tigger is house and crate trained. He needs a home where he can stay inside when the family is away so that he won't be tempted to go looking for some one to play with. While we have not seen him jump the 4 foot fences, he has gotten out of the back yard and gone to the front door to find his humans. He can also be a digger is left unattended for long periods. He's a little bit of a bull in a china shop but is learning his new routine and about life in the house quickly. Anyone would be lucky to have Tigger join their family. Tigger is in Salt Lake City, UT. For more information on please contact Rebecca Dowdell email@example.com, 801-272-9390 (H) or 801-581-5621 (W) or visit www.utahvizsla.org to fill out an application to adopt Tigger.
PLACED 19 February 2003 Hi Kay - You can take Cocoa off the website. He never did find a home, well yes he did, the foster home decided they could not give him up! Thanks. Rebecca Dowdell. 4 November 2002 Cocoa is an 8-10 yr old male who came to rescue by way of shelter and owner release. He is a wonderfully spirited older guy. He is light on his feet, loves to run and play and is particularly good in the house, around other dogs, children, people and cats and has always lived as an inside dog. He's a great bed cuddler, loves a good couch and is particularly fond of a belly rub (no surprise there!). This dog deserves a home that will allow him companionship, an indoor living arrangement and appropriate exercise.
PLACED 6 January 2003 I wanted to inform
you that we found Brody. He was found by a nice couple at the McDonalds
5 miles from our house. He was pretty shaken up, dehydrated, and hungry,
but he was not hurt. They saw him walking towards the road and after a while
they caught him and gave us a call. I wanted to thank you for your effort
in alerting people. We received one call from another Viszla owner near
our area that you had emailed. He called to let us know he would be keeping
an eye out too. Thank you to everyone who hoped and prayed for us. We are
a very happy family again!!2 January 2003 Hello my name is Natalie
Lloyd. Our 1 1/2 year old Viszla got out and ran away on New Years Eve.
His name is Brody. We have put
out flyers, called around to all available humane societies and shelters. No one has picked him up yet. If you can help with our search we would greatly appreciate it!
PLACED 13 December 2002 You can remove Mr. Cooder from dogs looking for homes! He has been adopted and I got the final word last night that he is a keeper!!! Yippee for Cooder! 4 November 2002 Cooder is a healthy, happy, three-legged 7yo male from a Boise ID shelter. He has an extremely even temperament and he is positive the whole world loves him as much as he loves them. The missing leg does not seem to slow him down at all and most people who have lived with a three-legged dog will tell you they have very little trouble keeping up with the rest of the crowd. We have pieced together some of his history from a rabies tag he was wearing when he was picked up and we know he lost his leg due to an injury four years ago and he was born Jan 1995. (Cooder is in Boise ID)
PLACED 4 October 02: Thanks for asking. The dog's original owner was not found after 2 weeks of looking but I found her a wonderful home where she is very happy. 31 July 2002: I'm trying to find the owner of a Vizsla. She was found in Salt Lake City Utah on 7/26/02. Very nice well mannered young dog. Contact Sarah
REUNITED 4 October 02: Great news, we found our puppy! She showed up after 4 days. She had wandered up to a farmer's house across the road from where she was lost. We had put fliers in mailboxes of everyone in the area and also put up signs and he recognized her from the picture. She is back home, safe and sound. She is a little skinny and had 2 deer ticks on her (she is vaccinated for Lymne disease) but other then that is perfectly fine. Thanks for your help. 1 October: Lost Vizsla. Lost in central Maryland (Howard County). Puppy (9 months old), female, spayed, wearing red collar with yellow and black stripes. Answers to "Sunshine." Lost on 9/28/02. Micro-chipped.
PLACED 18 June 2002 Scotty was adopted on 6/1/02 by a wonderful family in Fresno, CA. His new owners are willing to go that extra mile to help iron out some of Scotty's problems, and his new "sister", Rika, (who was also a Rescue Vizsla) will provide doggy companionship. Scotty has a great new life ahead in his fourth and final home. 8 April 2002 TWO-YEAR-OLD VIZSLA NEEDS A HOME Scotty is a very energetic purebred neutered two-year-old male Vizsla with lots of personality. He's a handsome guy, solid rust, weighing 60 lbs. He's a very affectionate Vizsla and loves toys, play, and lots of attention. Despite his adorable ways, Scotty does have some problems that his new owners will need to work with. He becomes distracted and has a hard time focusing when he is in new situations, especially those involving lots of people. He needs a very stable, structured environment where everything happens on schedule and there are no big surprises. In his foster home, he does beautifully. He has 3 other doggy playmates to ward off separation anxiety, a loving foster mom, a routine that he understands, and he stays on the property and runs with the other dogs for exercise. He was given up by his previous owner because he was in a new situation where a dog at a park lunged at him. He lunged back at the dog, and the other dog's owner came between them and was bitten by Scotty. The ideal home for Scotty would be one with no children, another dog for companionship, and owners who will give him lots of attention and love in a stable home situation. He will probably be ready to venture out into new situations in about 6 - 9 months after he has had some individual training, but he needs stability and structure in his life first. If you'd like to know more about Scotty, please contact Judy Jackson, Rescue Contact for the Vizsla Club of Northern California: 925-846-4022, VizRescue@aol.com
PLACED 25 March Lazer has been adopted effective June 2001. You can view his success story on our web site at www.coloradovizsla.org. Thank you for listing Lazer on your site, but as you can see he has a forever home now. Rita 31 August "If you want to update his information, this is what is happening. He is gradually being put with other neutered males (mine) and is behaving himself. He is more interested in where I am and wants to be with me. He is spending up to 20 minutes in the backyard before he goes over the fence. I am sure he will need some kind of deterrent for that problem. HE DOES NOT RUN AWAY, he just goes to the nearest door to the house and wants in. The chasing cat problem is, if the cat runs, he will chase, and I think that is workable. He might be trustworthy around cats one day, I don't know. This boy needs a home where he can get the individual attention he needs. That might be a big contribution to the fence jumping problem. Thanks," Rita 1 August Lazer - Vizsla or could be Vizsla/English Pointer mix. Looks purebred Vizsla with a lot of white. He is 1.5 yrs old, neutered male, current on his shots and Rabies. Wormed for round, hook & whip worms. He was loaded with hook & whip worms and should be tested again when he is adopted. He has been heartworm tested - negative. He is a little skinny, probably due to the worms and not being a good eater. He likes to run and is very muscled. He has an extremely sweet temperament and is perfectly content to be with you and in your lap. Loves to give Vizsla kisses. PROBLEM - 1. He does not get along with other male dogs and he tries to breed all the females. He has been neutered and after all the excess hormones are absorbed he should calm down a bit in this area. 2. He also has evidentially been taught to chase cats or he associates them with rabbits. He has hunted, don't know how much, but he is concerned when he hears thunder. 3. He needs to be in a secure yard with a fence at least 6' high. He climbs a chain link/wire fence like he was climbing a ladder. Could also be a wood fence. Probably the best would be a training collar, electric wire on the fence or invisible fence. I am not too convinced about an invisible fence with a problem fence jumper. Otherwise on temperament alone, he would be great for any family.
14 March The
missing vizsla was found dead by side of road--see
won't be coming home. I found him next to the interstate this evening
just before dark. I've driven this stretch every day since he got lost, never spotted
him. This evening I walked. Can't begin to explain how I feel, so
won't try. Besides I don't know how much power they run through these
keyboards. I want to thank all of you for the support you've shown.
It's made a difficult time a little easier. The one blessing in this whole mess
has been to make me realize how blessed I am with good friends in dog-dom and the real world. Thanks all, Bob Capistrant - one truely hurtin' unit. 10

Can go to home with other dogs, cats only if he >is kept away from them. He is good with adults and should be with children. He is oral just like a Vizsla, he likes to put his mouth around your arm.

PLACED 29 June Update.
June UPDATE: I have GREAT news to report. Laszlo was found yesterday. I didn't
have e-mail access yesterday or I would have e-mailed you yesterday with the
news. I got a call from a volunteer
FOUND 28 June UPDATE: Thanks, Sunni has been found. Not too far from home. She is ok, a little bruised and sore, but ok. Jenni 14 June: Vizsla Female, 18 months, small has only a choke collar on. Her regular collar and tags were not on her. Lost from truck between Concord, CA and Danville, CA Monday night
PLACED 29 June Ginger has been placed. 7 April 2000"Ginger" Ginger is a 4 yr. old spayed female who is in need of a loving and patient home. Her original owner neglected to socialize her with the intent to make her into a guard dog. He also field trained her, but was unsatisfied with his results. At 1 1/2 years, he placed an ad for her. She now lives with a family of five, who have been very good to her. Although Ginger is very much a part of their family, the addition of a baby in the house is now a concern. The unpredicability of a baby through toddler age is too much pressure for Ginger. Upon a visit to meet Ginger, I found no signs of outward aggression that I was expecting, just a mistrust to strangers. After feeding her hotdogs for an hour, she finally accepted me, and I was able to pet her. She never let out a growl when I tried to pet her before she was ready, she let me know by bumping me with her nose. She was telling me, "back off, I'm not sure of you yet". Ginger gets along with other dogs, and has shown caution around cats. She is behaves in the house and does not run away when off lead. She loves to be petted and will play ball. She must have only positive reinforcement training. The ideal home for Ginger would be a home with no children and people patient enough to understand her background, and willing to work with visitors on the proper approach to her. In the proper environment, Ginger will be a loving, loyal friend to you. Thank you in advanced for your help in this matter Kathy

FOUND (8 April): The Nevada Vizsla Baroness was found 2 miles from home. 4 April: "This lost V is 2 yo, was a little overweight (too much "love"), female on the taller side, very dark, no white. Her name is Baroness and she belongs to Karen Gifford. When she left she had collar and tags on. "
March Update: Lost Vizsla

gave VCNC Rescue a donation! Thanks" Judy 15 March Meika, a 2-year-old spayed female

January Update: Thanks
for the help and concern. Just as it was getting dark, after a FULL day
of calling, posting signs, contacting every Vet and Animal Shelter in the area,
and calling some more. We decided to take one
more loop through the neighborhood. Out of NOWHERE, Ficko
(feetsco) shows up, full of cactus spines and with a
scratched eye. We will never know where he was, or what he learned, but
we are incredibly thankful for his return. Things are back to normal, and
he is happy as can be!!! Life is good.
November update: Ivy was found in
November: I am writing to let you
know that Penny, the Vizsla listed on Nov 2nd is
now happily at home in
PLACED 14 November: Hi there. My name is Barb Turk. My husband, Chris, and I are thrilled to have our new member of the family, Gus, who we found thanks to your web page. Our five-year-old V, Ben, is also happy to have an older brother. Thank you so much for offering this vital service! I'd like to share a little bit about Gus on the web page and figured emailing to you would be the way to do it. Thanks again. Gus -- what a wonderful guy! His breeder cautioned that, "he's a great dog, but real active!" We thought -- of course! We know the breed! How active can he be at 10 (going on 11) years? He certainly puts our 5 year old V, Ben, to shame in the excitement department. Gus exudes enthusiasm, as all Vs do, but he seems even more full of vibrant life than most. A few times a week we go to the off-leash area nearby and people consistently express amazement that this playful, jaunty dog is now 11 years old. (We knew he was destined for us when we discovered that he and Ben share the same birthdate.) Once in a while his exuberance gets the better of him, and he seems to get disoriented when returning to the path. Not seeing us at first, he has on occasion headed off at top speed in the other direction. As we have become better acquainted, he finds us sooner, and few things lift my spirits as much as seeing his happy face find mine and come rushing toward me. Thank you so much for Gus and for this vital service you provide. We love him!!!
PLACED 27 August update: I wanted to let you know that Fergie has been adopted. The breeder got more involved and helped us identify a new home in NH. Mary and Marty have had her now for a few weeks and everything seems to be working out very well. She also has a new companion Elsa, a 7 year old V, and her new people report that Fergie actually kisses more than Elsa -- something they thought wasn't possible. I was waiting to make sure that this placement was going to work out. We got a very nice response to the ad. Thank you so much for helping us give Fergie a new beginning. Sincerely, Stephanie Gaynor and the rest of the folks working vccne rescue. 10 July: Fergie (above) is a spry and healthy 6 year old neutered female with AKC registration papers and full medical records. She is a big lean girl, weighing approximately 50 pounds. She is all wiggles and kisses to everyone she meets and greets and she gets on very well with other dogs. She loves her daily runs in the woods, retrieves very well and does not stray too far whenever she is off lead. Because of her sunny outgoing personality and her great passion for running and swimming, you would never guess that she has some dominant and fearful tendencies, which her former owners mismanaged. Ideally Fergie's new people would have the time and interest to work with her to help her get over her fears and willfulness. She needs her people to be loving but firm. Her life needs as much structure and consistency as possible. She has responded very well to the basic training and behavior modification program we have in place. We have seen much progress after just a few weeks. With the right match, and continued hard work, we believe that Fergie can become an excellent companion.
PLACED 27 August: Hello! We wanted to update you on our rescue Vizsla, Russet, who you profiled some time ago. Russ is doing very well, has matured into a wonderfully loving companion and recently earned his C.D. obedience title in only 4 trials. He sets a terrific example for our young Vizsla pup, Teddy (who is 6 mos. old), though Teddy seems more interested in being mischevious than in following Russet's lead. Russ has already started his Open obedience work and seems to really enjoy it. Take care.Rich and Melina

PLACED 7 March: First I'd like to thanks all the kind, wonderful people out there who were willing to adopt Rose. Thanks to all who supported me in my effort to find her a home. Rose went to her new home yesterday. A lady from upstate NY who had lost her rescue vizsla because of cancer called me. I told her that Rose was no young chick and she answered me by saying " I'm not a young chick either and us old girls got to stick together". Well, yesterday we met in

However, she is doing GREAT. In the kitchen watching for any scraps. She has adjusted well and enjoys playing with her new brothers!! AGAIN thank you for your services!!!" Katrina 2 Feburary Update: "Just wanted to announce to Kay and her list and the Vizsla ListServ that enough funds and pledges have arrived to cover the $1300 in medical expenses for Holly. She is one happy girl and I will post a longer story later this week and announce her new home!!! Thanks again for all your support, notes of encouragement, and faith in V's!!! I appreciate her getting to be the "poster child" this month and urge folks to get involved in any way they can with rescue. (Kay could you remove the request for additional funds and just change her to a happy rescue child.) Boy it is great to be involved with such a grand bunch of folks who really open their hearts and wallets to animals in need. Rescue is work but when you get such great support, I hope I don't burn out for a long time!!!!"
