Aug 2019: Ginger is a 3 yr old Wirehaired Vizsla in need of a special, very dog experienced home. She is very toy motivated and has good food drive as well. She has a fair amount of energy and loves to play fetch bordering on obsession. She has been moved around way too much during her young life and is not good with female dogs or children. She reacts initially to strangers and strange situations with growling and barking but with a little patience she adjusts and is fine. However a small child will send her over the top, she isn't comfortable with them in any way. She uses her mouth often to communicate, either by taking your hand in her mouth in affection or she will nip you when she is excited or wants something from you, not malicious but without inhibition. (As an example, she wasn't ready to stop playing with her ball.) She plays well with the foster's male dogs, even enjoys their company but does not get along with females. More photos here.

CLANCY & PEPPER - Adopted!
Apr 2019: Clancy & Pepper are a bonded pair whose elder owner could no longer care for them. They are well-adjusted, well-loved, happy & outgoing "pups" whose owner must have loved them very much. Clancy is 8-yrs (b.7/17/2010) and Pepper just turned 7-yrs (b.3/28/2012), both healthy, UTD on vax, microchipped and spayed/neutered. We're still getting to know them but initial assessment is great temperaments, happy & friendly, outgoing, housebroken and crate trained. They need work on leash pulling and door dashing. They ride well in the car and do well with other dogs, including at doggie daycare. (Thank you to The House of Hounds in Boise for letting Clancy & Pepper come to daycare!) More photos here.

BOSCO - Adopted!
Mar 2019: Bosco is a 7-yr old old vizsla (b. 10/2011) looking for a new home due to divorce, move to a small house and less time from his humans. We are told he can be anxious with loud noises and storms, is nervous about car rides but he loves water. He is in a foster home with other vizslas. As a new intake we are still getting to know Bosco and we should have more info soon. (Bosco in in Seattle area)
Mar 30 update from foster mom, Shauna: He is adjusting well. He prefers a man as his person but trusts women immediately. He loves his head petted, playing with his tennis ball, and going outside. He has great manners. Knows sit, stay, shake. He will wait for you to tell him to get his food. He does not want to play with a young dog. He is not aggressive he just tells my younger boy to leave him alone. He barks really loud. It is such a deep bark. He is gentle with kids. My 9 year old knows how to treat dogs so there is that. He is a little apprehensive still. His bed is still under the table where he feels safe. He is passive but will bark or growl as a warning if he doesn't like someone. He also barks for attention, but not when someone comes to the door. Great on a leash, doesn’t pull.
