I feel like I have seen a lot of Vs in rescue lately. Maybe someone on here is considering another addition...

ADOPTED!!! Lukin - 11 month old male in PA area
His owners couldn't train or exercise him enough so they put him into rescue. They were also moving.
The rescue would like to place him locally - PA, NJ or northern Delaware

ADOPTED!!! Bella - 6 month old female in SoCal area
Not sure of her back story. (She will be spayed prior to going to her new home)

Adoption pending!! Oscar - 1 year old male in Roswell, GA
He was donated to a raffle at a local school. The owners weren't able to take care of him as a puppy and he's now in rescue.

This is heartbreaking. These dogs are smart, but can you imagine how confusing and sad all of this must be for them? They get attached to their humans quickly, and then... :'( :'(

How unbelievably sad!! I would take another V in a heartbeat if it wasn't for the distance - we would love to have rescue but it need to be a V due to my husband's allergies so it would have been perfect!! :'( :'( :'(

And another one...
(When I saw this one I had dmak in mind as he's hoping to add to his pack. Not sure how far of a drive from Louisiana though.)

ADOPTED? (Post deleted) 2 year old female in Jonesboro, Arkansas (FREE TO GOOD HOME!)
The current owners are looking for a new home for her as they moved and need to reduce the number of dogs that they have. She had pups last year and has not been spayed. Up to date on shots and good with kids per their listing.

How irresponsible to have puppies and then say they have too many dogs and get rid of the mom :mad: hope she finds a better home.

It's very upsetting to see how many V's are in need of new homes...

I believe a lot of people do not research the breed prior to getting a puppy or may be don't realize how much work/ exercise it takes to make V happy.

Texas V rescue currently has 9 dogs for adoption, just a few months ago they did not have any....

The New Hope Vizsla Rescue in PA was contacted regarding 4 this week alone. Including one from a breeder.

I'm going to try to keep posting adoptable Vs on here with hopes of members or other people just stopping by the site considering adopting a V. I know we all like to think there aren't many in rescue but there really are a lot more than most of us realize. And a lot of them are young.

The Mrs has decided that we have to wait 3 monthes to bring another member to our fold (we're moving cross country). :( she doesn't want to drive 2500 miles with 2 high energy dogs in the cab of the moving van. (Can't blame her) I may bite the bullet and get one anyways. We're only 7-8 hour drive from Arkansas and Roswell GA. Lets hope I van twist the Mrs arm

I see these beautiful dogs and its hard to resist.
Having three Vs already, I know I can't offer a home to a fourth, but it sure is tempting.

dmak, just tell the Mrs that you're breaking her in for this cross country drive and then drive her on up to get that pup. Once she sees those gorgeous eyes she won't be able to resist.

I specifically looked in Louisiana for you and (luckily) I didn't see any Vs available.

I wish it was that easy. Surprisingly, I've not come across a single vizsla the last few years we've been in new orleans. Kauzy, for all I know, has never met another v. Its all about labs, catahoula's, curs and gsp's down here. Whenever I go to the hunt lodge or the local gundog club, Kauzy is overly admired by all.

I think having a link at the top of the page for adoptable dogs/links to rescue sites rather than just a conversation thread would be fantastic! I'm always combing the rescue sites as I think about adding another V :)

ADOPTED? (Page deleted) Rex - Adult neutered male in Carrollton, GA
His family has grown in size since when he was "adopted" so they are looking for a new home for him. The family has also recently rehomed their other 2 dogs so they are motivated to find him a home where he will not be the only dog.

ADOPTED? (Page deleted) Nuka - Adult spayed female vizsla/weim mix in Glen Elynn, IL
Her current owner adopted her and believes she has a "dominant personality" which has begun to stress out their V by her "bossy" tendencies. Owner states that she is good off leash but needs a strong owner to train her.

Adopted? (Post removed) Ruby - Young/Puppy spayed female in Charlottesville, VA
Ruby has anxiety issues which her current owner has been working to minimize but can no longer do so. She has been socialized with children and other dogs but they believe she would do best as the only dog and one that can be with their owner 24/7.
