Wirehaired Vizsla Club
Celebrating 10 years of Protecting and Promoting the Wirehaired Vizsla
The Official AKC
Parent Club of the Wirehaired Vizsla
These two male Wirehaired Vizslas in Ramona, CA need a new home. Their owners have to move from an acreage into a small condo and can't take the dogs with them.
These dogs are 6 year old litter-mates. One has a stouter build and the other is much leaner.
They have been outside dogs and will need some training to adjust to living inside, but they should be able to learn and adapt. If both can go together, they have 2 igloo dog houses and additional portable fencing that can go with them. They understand basic commands and enjoy exploring. Being Wirehaired Vizslas, it is no surprise that hey also enjoy the water and like to swim! They have lived outside together in a dog run and are used to being let out twice a day to roam their acreage.
The owner says they're well-mannered and love human companionship, being brushed and petted or just being close to them. They are both neutered and healthy, but need to have their vaccinations updated. They have gotten along well with other dogs that came to be on the farm with them, both large and small.
WVCA Rescue is trying to help the owner find a loving forever home for them before she has to move and we are also working to get a foster home lined up so they won't have to go to a shelter if the move happens before they're adopted.
If you live on the West Coast and can provide a temporary, foster home for them, or would like to give them a new forever home, please use this link to contact our rescue coordinator today!
In 2003, WHVCA Rescue was created in response to several WHV or possible WHVs in shelters. As a rare breed, they don't turn up in shelters often, although occasionally a dog is relinquished to our club's Rescue by the owner. We defines a "rescue" as a WV from various types of shelters, a stray, an abandoned dog, or a dog whose owners can no longer care for it. WHVCA Rescue is dedicated to the welfare of such Wirehaired Vizslas. Rescue program workers are volunteers, and give their time, effort, expertise, and often their own resources to help WHV in need. WHV Rescue is supported entirely by donations. We always appreciate donations of funds, supplies, and services.
Dogs in the rescue program are spayed, neutered, and their temperament evaluated before placement into a new home. In addition, all applicants wishing to adopt through the rescue program are carefully screened by experienced Rescue volunteers (Wirehaired Vizsla owners, breeders, and trainers.) A detailed questionnaire, interview process and home check are all part of this screening process. The adoption fee is $200 and helps pay our veterinary expenses.
If you are familiar with this wonderful breed and think that adopting a dog through rescue might be an option for you, or
if you know of a Wirehaired Vizsla in need, please contact us.
Rescue operations put a very great strain on our limited rescue funds and wouldn't even be possible without the generosity of some very special people.
The good news is you can help, too, just by getting your dog a new collar or toys, or a canine T-shirt for yourself!
