Hello all -- I've had my Vizsla, Willie for a couple of years now, but just found these forums. Willie's story started out pretty sad. He was a lost dog, maybe about two-years-old. He was running around loose in a neighborhood for two or three weeks. It was the middle of a Michigan winter and night time temps were hitting about 10 degrees below zero. He was starving and looked pretty much like a skeleton. Some kind soul finally called the local "dog catcher" and that phone call saved his life! He ended up in the dog pound. I found him on the web site called www.petfinder.com and went to adopt him. He cost me $37. I had him back to good health in about a month. Now he is my very best buddy! Everywhere we go, people comment on how beautiful he is. He is also very sweet and loving. I have heard people say that Vizsla are "hyper" but I think the truth is that they are just extremely playful. I'm a retired lady, 63-years-old, and Willie is the light of my life!
