Sweet young Vizsla boy, that's going to be my next foster. He's not ready for adoption yet.
His medical needs need to be taken care of first. They include eye, and ear infection, a case of worms, and mange.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

No, he was found wondering the streets in South Texas. They are guessing only about 8 months old. But when malnourished, they can appear younger than they are. He's not chipped, so a good chance we will never know his story.

I just have to figure out how to keep me, and the other dogs from getting scabies.
I will have to fix him a spot separate from them for the next two weeks, and use gloves when handling him. I'm going to research what other protocols I need to put in place, or we will all be itching. 😨

good lord, how can anyone be so cruel. How is he Texas Red, is he very frightened, or relieved to have found you? I really can't understand some people.

Good luck with avoiding catching any itchiness from him. Poor baby.

I won't get him till this weekend.
In his videos he looks sweet, and just wants attention.

Poor baby! A velcro Vizsla, more than another breed, would suffer from abandonment & being alone on the streets. Good on you, Deb, for his fostering.


Possibly the only good thing about scabies/mange: "However, canine scabies and feline scabies are not caused by the same type of mite that triggers human scabies. You can get mites from handling an infested pet, but these mites canít reproduce in human skin. This means they usually die off without causing serious symptoms." (https://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-...abies-overview). Still, you don't want to get them and transfer then to your guys.

From a long time Vizsla rescuer, I've been told to wash everything daily in hot water. That anything I wear needs to go straight to the washer, no putting it in the hamper.
This includes his bedding, and it's recommend that I wash mine more than normal. I look at it as a small price to pay, to get him started. He will be getting here on Sunday.
Going to take the next couple of weeks, to figure out if he is going to be more than a foster to my family. I don't normally adopt my fosters, but he could be the exception.
He has a lot of interest in him, so I don't want to keep people waiting to long.

Well, definitely sounds like a lot of work, but he will turn out beautiful I am sure. Hoping that he fits in and will have a long, happy life.

Odi is here.
Hard to get a picture without him scratching, but he's a sweetheart.
