Remington’s Story

Roux’s Story

 

Well, for my family, this was our first time to participate in the adoption of a Viszla rescue. Our love for Vizslas started 9 years ago when we brought our first “child” home–our four legged, furry Jake. His mother was a Vizsla….read more…

Duke and Missie (Con’t)

 

image006We were nervous to bring a baby home because Duke and Missie were so terrified of children. Being part of the South Side Kennel dogs, they were never really exposed to people. I talked to them about the baby through the whole pregnancy and I played shows on TV….read more…

Lola

As you know, Lola is not my first dog, but once you have a wonderful dog, and I have had more than my share of wonderful dogs, a life without one is a diminished life. I now have Lola and my life, of course, is so much fuller…read more…

Within the past 18 months my husband and I lost our two Weimaraners: Sadie was our 12.5-year old that we adopted when she was four, and Buck, our 15 year-old came romping into our house when he was seven-weeks-old. They had wonderful lives and gave us so much more. …read more…

Scooby

vcli rescue dog scooby in a dog bed with another vWe could never imagine our life without a Vizsla and when our beloved Hunter died it took us all of 30 days to get puppy……we found a crazy loving and wonderful boy and named him Remington (we call him Remi).  After Remi turned 2 we realized that he needed a friend and as my son’s… read more…

Kody

southside vcli rescue dog kody with a toyWow, has it really been a year since this beautiful, wonderful, precious soul entered my life?  It’s hard to believe.  The time seems to have just floated by.  When Kody first came home, he was a little shy about meeting new people and dogs, but once he had a ‘proper’ greeting, he opened right up and read more…

rockyRocky

As Rocky lies curled up on our feet, it’s hard to believe we’ve only had him for six weeks.  Our journey began five months ago, and Rocky was certainly worth the wait.  Neil and I had been together for almost two and a half years and decided it was time to expand our family… read more…

kobor2Kobör

“He is the best present ever…” which is how we always describe him.  Sadly, we just lost our previous 12 year old Vizsla to cancer, and were determined to find a Vizsla in need of rescue to help fill our empty hearts when Kobör came into our lives.  Previously named Carter by his foster family, he was found running around… read more…

My name is Scott Miller and I have been a Foster/rescue volunteer for two and a half years. I mostly fostered for Diane Shearer who serves as the Eastern Pennsylvania rescue coordinator.

I was in Florida at the time.. read more…

chesterChester

It may seem odd starting out a story of our newest rescue, Chester, with another short story, “The story of Lany” that was rescued with the help of Mary K and Stephanie. Lany joined our family in May 2007? (Mary K – can’t remember if that was the year?) And although she obviously had a troubled past she quickly became our best friend and was an energetic learner and love bug that gave us a true appreciation for the breed and how tender and lovable they truly are… read more…

AjaAja

I sleep on a pink satin sheet in my master’s fluffy bed until noon.  Every viszla should have this life.  After all I was awaken at 6:30 AM to tend to my toilet needs, run in my yard with my older brother, Dion, eat breakfast, groomed and given my “treat” (fish oil).  Now I need my beauty rest.  I know my master’s mother will call me down at noon to sit with her.  I love to rest my head on her soft shoulder and snuggle close to her warm body.  My brother Dion is old and sleeps a lot… read more…
