I live in Louisville, KY and was at our locally owned pet supply store today buying chew toys for our 2 V's. This pet supply store also has an outpost adoption center for the Humane Assoc. Anyway, my children had to go look at the dogs -of course- (which is honestly heart wrenching for me, so I always abstain). Today though, they came running to me to tell me there was a Vizsla in one of the pens (more like solitary confinement cell). I walked over to check and sure enough, there was the sweetest face sitting there staring at me. She was so sad and pitiful - it absolutely broke my heart. Her story (per the humane society worker) is that the family had a very young (toddler) child, who started messing with the dog while she was eating. The dog reacted and, of course... now lives at the shelter. She has been there since early June. They will not adopt to a home with children under 12 or other dogs because evidently she has some lingering issues surrounding her food and eating with other critters (2 or 4 legged) around. She is a beautiful girl, pure-bred and 3 years old - sweet, sweet face. Her name is Elsa. I wanted to get the word out in case anyone local or semi-local was in the market for adopting a new furry V friend. If I didn't have 2 children under 12 and 2 young V's, I would adopt her myself. I'm not above fibbing just to get her out of there, but I just don't have space for a 3rd dog - especially not knowing how she'd react around my other 2. I'm attaching photos and information about her.
She is at the Springhurst Feeder's Supply/Humane Association in Louisville, KY. (502)425-5486
