Sep 2018: Colt and Major are two very sweet 11 yr old brothers full of love and devotion. Colt is the more active of the two, still your typical Vizsla that loves to be on the go. Major loves his couch and would rather enjoy the senior life of watching his brother be the silly one. Both love their long walks/hikes with their family off leash on the WA trails. They sadly are looking for a new home (hoping to stay together), because their long time family can no longer keep them due to life changes. They are special pair that we would love to place together if at all possible. (Colt & Major are in the Seattle area)

JORDAN aka Clifford the big red dawg - Adopted
Apr 2018: Jordan is an all-American redhead looking for a family to love amd help him become the dog he wants to be. He is likely a Rhodesian ridgeback/lab mix and definitely NOT vizsla. He is a very friendly outgoing 1-2 yr old juvenile delinquent, 65-lbs, good with cats and dogs of all sizes. He gets a little stressed in a large group of dogs like at daycare but does well in small play groups. He knows basic commands (sit, down) and has fantastic recall. He has done well visiting outdoor restaurants with dog friendly patios. Jordan would make a good hiking/fishing buddy. Jordan is one of those never met a stranger kind of dogs, loves to snuggle.

JAKE - Adopted
Jan 2018: Jake is an approx 5-yr old male who came to us as a shelter stray in Utah. He is a small boy at 45-lbs, tail docked, dews off. He has been neutered, has had a dental, vax updated and microchipped. He is good with dogs & people of all sizes & ages (loves kids) and crate trained. He has been to daycare and the dog park several times and is good with dogs of all sizes but not cats. We think he was probably a yard/kennel dog but he quickly figured out how cool couches are.
His faults - Jake is not a classically handsome boy. His head is square, nose too short, ears too short but no doubt he is a Vizsla, docked tail and dews off. He has some scars on him perhaps from field work. He was not neutered until we got him so he wanted to hump everything but that has pretty much disappeared since his neuter.
His good points - He is small at only 45 lbs. He has some cute personality traits starting to peek thru like he stretches out full on the floor with his legs behind him and crawls forward on his elbows. He also is playful in the yard when you clap hands and chase him. He loves to snuggle on the couch, rides well in the car, hunkers down and is not a ping pong ball. Great with people of all ages but NOT with cats. (Thank you to The House of Hounds in Boise for letting Jake come to daycare. More photos here.
