Vizsla & her sister

Well the summer seems to have gone for a while and rain and wind has taken its place, so we will cheer you all up with another successful rehome story. You have heard about her before but she’s just too brilliant to not mention again!

Paddy has been in her new home a little while now and her and her partner in crime, ridgeback Scarlet have the most incredible fun filled days!

When they aren’t snuggled up together they are playing – what more could you want!

They are completely adored by their family & love each other unconditionally.

Beautiful Vizsla & her sister 

Beautiful Brecca

We have some absolutely amazingly wonderful news to share today!

Brecca our darling Spanish rescue has today flown the nest to start her new life with the wonderful Martin & Jane!

We are so thrilled she has found such an amazing pair to join – what a great family they make.

Wishing you all the happiness in the world beautiful Brecca – you will be missed at VR HQ ❤️

Beautiful Soul

Today is officially ‘blue monday’. It’s apparently the most miserable day of the year! The weather definitely isn’t helping and when are Monday’s ever good!!??

Well I thought I’d try and cheer you all up a little bit  here are some more pictures of the amazing ZsaZsa. Some of you may remember her story from last year but those who don’t – she is a 13 year old gorgeous girl who needed our help as her family sadly had to move away. They weren’t going to be in a fixed country and couldn’t bare the thought of ZsaZsa having to stay in kennels for extended periods of time.

ZsaZsa was adopted by Jenny and her husband and she is living the life of pure luxury, filled with love, kisses and walks! She even has a new cousin – an older rescue Labrador who was adopted by Jenny’s sister. They adore each other and spend their time frolicking in the sea.

Jenny said to me “I can’t emphasise enough the joy this lady has brought to our lives and I keep banging on to everyone that older dogs have so much left to give, just give them a chance!”

I love hearing about how they are getting on and I think you’ll all agree she’s a lucky and beautiful girlie.

Saving a life

What a busy few days for the Vizsla Community & Vizsla Rescue! As many of you may have seen on Facebook, this weekend, a lovely young female Vizsla was brought to everyone’s attention – she looked like she had been used for breeding and now was no longer wanted.

With the help of the Vizsla community; Tanya & her husband, Paul went in and brought this girl home (now called Ruby). She is now safe with the lovely Joelle who is taking great care of her. Ruby will be assessed there & cared for as long as she needs.

Vizsla Rescue will be supporting Ruby with any expenditures (food etc), as well as any veterinary treatment that she needs. When we & Joelle are happy that Ruby is ready she will then be re-homed where she can start her life as a true Vizsla (obviously being spoilt rotten).

As a charity we do not and cannot buy dogs, we can however, help like we are doing with Ruby – supporting her, her foster parents and ensuring she finds her forever home.

As a team we would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Tanya, Paul, Joelle and all the others who have helped save this girl. The Vizsla community, as we have said before is one that continues to amaze us every day and we are all honoured to be a part of it.

To find out more about us and what we do please feel free to contact us.

Our Day at Crufts

On Friday 11th March we headed to Crufts. Emily travelled from Hertfordshire, bringing our information leaflets and the copies of her book, Natascha and Sylvia travelled from Grantham together, with their car fit to bursting, with mugs, cushions, notelets and Natascha’s Vizsla Angel who was competing later that day. Amanda and Claire travelled from the Peak District bringing our float, receipts and the most important thing – lunch!

We all met at the Vizsla ring in hall 4 at around 7:30am all laden with goodies. Our stand was right on the edge of the ring so we had the perfect view all day of the beautiful Vizslas.

We set up the table, keeping everything quite simple and elegant with only a few examples of our stock on show and some perfect ‘ginger’ roses.

We had our stunning greeting cards which were illustrated by the exceptionally talented Gillian Heaphy, who also has a rescue Vizsla from us.

These were accompanied by our ‘Arthur’ range. Arthur is a rescue Vizsla who was rehomed last year to a lovely lady who is also a wonderful artist – Arthur’s drawing has been placed on a handmade cushion, greetings cards, notelets and a fab bone china mug.

We also had the launch of Emily’s Children’s book which she wrote staring her own Vizsla, Olive.

The day flew by with lots of people popping over to have a chat, ask advice about adopting a Vizsla, help with existing Vizslas or to buy some of our merchandise. We had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful Juta who is the star on the latest cards designed and sold by Gillian (some of you may have seen her competition running on Facebook). Gillian has very kindly offered a donation to Vizsla Rescue from the sale of these cards, which we are extremely grateful for.

All in all we all had an amazing time and want to thank everyone who stopped by to see us.

All products that were purchased go towards the upkeep of Vizslas in our care and any newbies that join us. Without your support we couldn’t do what we do and continue to help our wonderful breed so again, thank you from all the team!

Our Crufts adventure did not stop there and Amanda headed back up with Grant and Amanda’s gorgeous Viz, Agi. They were on the breed stand for Discover Dogs which allows people to learn more about specific breeds and meet and example of the breed.
