Vizsla Rescue of Texas needs fosters for 4 dogs.
Cane Rosso Rescue is trying to bring these dogs (pictured below) into their program.
They have funds to cover all vetting, they just need fosters to make it happen.

If you would like to know more about a dog before fostering. They have these cuties at the rescue center.
Fostering one of them, makes room for another dog to join. All the dogs at the center have a full bio.
The picture of Queenie, was before she joined the rescue. This one is of her on her way to the rescue.

This might be my next foster. She was adopted from a shelter. But when her owners realised she had problems with the way she walks, they didn't want her longer. My nephew stepped up, and stopped her from being put to sleep.
Me and Ranger are going to go meet her next week. Her name is Wobbles.

Wobbles is with me, and we have changed her name to Regal.
She had her first vet check, and xrays last Thursday. No diagnoses on her problem.
She's seeing a orthopedic specialist today. The dog with the funny gait when walking. Can run like the wind, when playing in the backyard.

Orthopedic vets best guess, is she was not fed a nutritional diet in the past. Her growth plates are still open, so she is only 8-9 months old. With good food, and kept on non slippery surfaces, her condition may correct itself. Her hips, and knees look good, she just has some laxity at her hocks allowing them to have more bend It reminds me of the German shepherds bred for show. She is not in any pain, and has no inflammation of the tendons. If she does not improve after a month, she will get a recheck, and consider other possible causes.

This is great news. I am sending ESP that she the self correction happens. Can she swim and if yes is that a helpful option too? Just trying to learn, always curious what `treatments` are best for diverse symptoms.

I'm sure she is able to swim.
That might be a option, a little later down the road. Right now we are having to work hard on manners. She is 51 lbs of pure puppy play. Plus she has a lot of Heeler in her. Heelers love to nip, and more so love to nip at your heels when you walk.
Her recall is hit, or miss. She likes to run full force into your lap. She is perfect on lead for about 10 minutes, and then becomes bored.
We have been working on all of the above. I do 4 short traning sessions with her daily. Some sessions, I feel like she is really getting it. But sometimes, I feel like her excitement gets the better of her.
We have been practicing a sit, right before she gets to me. Keep in mind, she's in a full run with a toy in her mouth. He objective is to shove the toy into my chest. My objective is to have her sit, and give the toy to me. She would rather play tug a war with it. But is learning, its a game I won't play. So its sit, and trade the toy for cheese. Then resit, and I throw it for her. It works about 75-80 percent of the time. Once she gets better at it, less cheese will be involved.

Pull from the shelter last week. Rio, a big black and white, outgoing happy boy.
Today it was Shelby's turn. We tried to get her last week, but the shelter sent her to the vet school to be spayed.
I know vets students need to practice their skills. But I dislike them using dogs, that have a high chance of being put down after after returned to the shelter.

Amazing the energy and toughness you have. These pups are lucky to have people like you around.
There is a whole team of people behind the scenes, that make this possible.
Rio is at the vets, being treated for kennel cough. Shelby had some slight sniffles, when I picked her up. So she is there also as a precaution.
These two will have mandatory vet isolation, until they are cleared to be around other dogs. I would have loved to just brought them home, and let them start settling in. But it would have put the other 3 dogs at risk. I will have to settle for dropping off a Easter toys for them.

Awe. I can understand your anxiousness to have them around. But better to be safe... keep us posted how it is going with them.

After my dogs were not puppies, I didn't worry to much about kennel cough. Thought of it more of as the common cold.
But then we have pulled some dogs, and their kennel cough was accompanied with pneumonia. They needed to stay a few days at the ER vets, receiving 24 hour around the clock care.
So now we try and keep them from all other dogs for 10 days, if they have been in a shelter.

Does pneumonia have long term health consequences for dogs the same way as for humans? (scar on the lounge and reduced oxygen intake etc)

I really have not seen any long term effects in them.
I saw Tula two weeks ago, and her owner was saying how she racetracks around the yard.
My husband had pneumonia 10 years ago, and it hasn't slowed him down.

I would think repeated pneumonia would do more damage/scaring, than a one time occurrence.
