Odi was able to start his vaccinations yesterday. He's picking up weight, and his skin is looking better. He's turning into the normal silly Vizsla. Likes to snag towels, and trot around with them. I have to keep my coffee cup up high, or he tries to get a quick taste.
He goes back to the vet on Thursday, for his next round of mange treatment.
That's awesome news.....we need more caring people like you in the world.

God bless and best of luck to Odi going forward!

What a difference in the pictures. Yeah, his skin is still terrible & his ribs still show. But his attitude is so different: in the 1st ones his head is down and he has a dejected & weary look. Now he looks interested. I'm happy for him.

I'm glad to hear Odi is doing better. Mine likes to snag the kitchen towels off the counter and parade them around, too! If he can't grab one in time, he looks for a shoe. Jax and I are sending well wishes to Odi and are watching his story unfold!

Glad to hear he’s doing Ok. He looks like a sturdy little guy; bit short in legs but very nice head. I’m sure he’ll be a fantastic companion, with personality blossoming as he feels better! :)

Picture of Odi playing fetch with me.
He's looking like a new dog.

He's a doll with people.
Sadly he's not a fan of Shine. ☹
She's a in your face kinda dog, that thinks every new dog should want to be her best friend.
So he will stay my foster, until the perfect home is found for him. He gets neutered, and chipped next week. That way he will be ready for his new family.

That's a shame but not a surprise, anyone that would let a dog get into that condition would not have been socialising the pup.

I admire your work with these dogs, it's great that they get such a good opportunity for a happy life.

We always hope they are dog friendly. It makes them so much easier to place. He's been good in every other way. No accidents in the house, good in his crate. Loves everyone he meets, and not scared at the vets office. Even thunderstorms don't bother him. No signs of food aggression around people.
With all he has been through, I guess we are lucky it's his only flaw.

Odi is turning into the biggest good ball. I guess I should say, He's just being normal male Vizsla. My husband set his socks down for two seconds, and Odi was trotting around with them.
He's back to a good weight, and had his last mange treatment. It will take a while for his full coat to come in, but it's already looking better. He is losing that dull orange hair, and it's coming back in a dark beautiful rust color. He was neutered, and chipped last week. He will be ready for adoption in another week.
We have had tons of applications on him. But sadly all have other dogs. Vizsla rescue is going through their apps, to see if they have anyone that would fit, to be Odi's new family. I love when rescues work together, to save, and place these special dogs. For now, we are trying to keep Odi in Texas. Although out of state Vizsla rescue has offered to do home checks for us, if needed.

Odi leaves me today.
He will head up to Dallas, then next week he goes north to his new family.

he turned out to be a very handsome fellow! good luck sweet boy, have lots of lots of fun in your furever home.
He looks nothing like the dog, I brought into my home 3 months ago. Other than the huge feet, but he grew into them.
He weighed 57 lbs on his last vet visit, and I think he's add more weight since then.

Your right, it is bittersweet on my part.
The longer they stay, the more we miss them.

Fosters are the bridge to a new life, we are not meant to be forever homes for most of the dogs.

“I am the bridge,
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.

I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, limping, depressed
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.

For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.

I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
when your eyes shine,
And your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.

I will let you go; not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever
And a new dog needs me now”
