Those fires sound horrible.
Cash is right, smelling smoke is something to worry about in my book.
Ranger spent 30 minutes in the house without stress, while I was outside.
Keep hoping these small steps will lead to bigger ones.
Bailey headed to Dallas on Wednesday.

So glad that he's making some progress! It's a slow road for sure but I'm sure with consistency and patience he'll come a long way. Penny knows Place and it has really helped her with her fear issues. When I see that she's starting to struggle with her fear I tell her to Place and once she's in her spot I can see her relaxing and feeling more safe.
It's amazing how sensitive these dogs can be. With all of these fires here in CA, it's very smoky in my area and it's freaking Cash out. He's glued to my side and this morning when I had to go to work he was visibly shaking when he realized I was getting ready to leave. You never know what little thing might upset them. Luckily for Cash, usually a little cuddle will get him past it.

We've had them close, but not interacting yet. My husband tore a calf muscle, and I like to have a extra person doing introductions. He's on crutches, so not a lot of help. She really isn't paying any attention to them. She just wants us to play with her. Switching out who's crated, or who's leashed with us for today.
Maybe one of my daughters wants to walk dogs with me tomorrow. The introductions go better when they get to figure each other out away from home.

|einspänner||What a cute girl! I'm sure she's excited to get regular meals again. How's she doing around the other dogs?|

Keeping his food schedule the same is worth a try. It's the one thing I sometimes slack on. If one of the dogs goes sniffing around the food container early, they get fed a hour early.

The owners could have at least signed her over to the shelter, when they called.
We could have then pulled, and had her vetted sooner.
With them just blocking the calls, she had to stay on a 72 hour stray hold.
She's very skinny. We don't yet know her age, or if she is heart worm positive.
I know Cane Rosso Rescue is loaded down with Harvey dogs, but I had to ask 'Is there any room at the Inn?"
Sometimes it doesn't hurt to post it on the founders Facebook page.
Something I don't normally ask, if I can't foster. I could only offer to pull, take to vet, and transport this one.
They put out the word for fosters, and within a hour I was told YES.
I can't say enough about the big hearted people that run this rescue.
The picture of Ranger at Pups on the patio, was at a Cane Rosso restaurant.
It was to raise money for The Vizsla Rescue of Texas.
If your ever in Texas, look up the location of the restaurants.
Good food, and dog friendly.

It was only inside the house. Outside he would run around and play. Like a lot of vizslas, you have to be out there with him.
He's been with me over a month. Teaching him to settle on place, has helped him when he is just hanging out.
He doesn't try to stay as attached to you now, and can lay watching you.
He will even stay in bed for a few minutes alone, when I get up in the morning.
I was shocked, the first morning he did it.
At times I wonder what I got myself into.
Other times I see him wanting, and trying very hard to learn anything I'm teaching him. And think he should be here.
Even if we get to the point he can be alone for some periods of time. All of that could be undone, if he went to a new home. There's a chance this foster will never leave. I knew he would probably be a long term foster, before I agreed to take him.
So I have my hands full with him, Abbey, and June. Plus I'm pulling a Weimar Lab mix from the shelter on Monday. She will only be with me till Wednesday night, before she heads to Dallas.
Please just let her like other dogs.
She was found as a starving stray, but was chipped. After a few calls from the shelter, her owners blocked the calls.
