Bob Engelhardt Link didn't work, so I changed it to one that I had verified & it doesn't work either. Cut-and-paste works.

The HVF site is shortening the link & putting "..." in the middle. Support has been notified.

2Vizslas Hello!
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

Keegan is going to a foster this weekend.

v-john Couple more pictures. The second picture is her eating a cheese puff. Not sure she knew what to do with it at first.

v-john Hey guys, meet Flora. I'm fostering her for Iowa/Nebraska Vizsla rescue. She is an absolute doll, but doesn't know how to be a dog yet, and may have a fear of men. I believe she was used as a brood bitch for most of her life, and her owners were supposed to be getting out of the breed. Who knows on that aspect, but she came in with Keegan. I fostered Flora, and Keegan, I believe is still looking for a foster home. He might have one. She is extremely fearful, so I carry her outside and carry her back inside. We will get there, but she will take some time. Yesterday was a big step in the right direction when she came out of her crate voluntarily to hang out with all of us in the living room.
She isn't adoptable yet. But we will get there.

Re: Adoptable/Rescue Vs

I've heard it can take a long time to place a senior, and would think a senior mix could take even longer.
So if she is still with me this time next year, I've got a good excuse.
In the mean time I don't think she's stressing over it.

Amen, Bob! Those seniors find a way into your heart real quick. And before you know it, they're permanent additions. Just ask Kravitz

Attagirl! Guard your heart - you said that you intend to foster her till a permanent home is found, but "foster failure" is real. Right, KB87?
