This year we will be launching a new Christmas card and we need your help to name it!!
The competition for name ideas will run from now until Sunday 1st October at 8pm when a winner will be announced. The winner will receive a pack of our bespoke Christmas cards.
We are extremely lucky at Vizsla Rescue that we get to work with some fantastic artists who give up their precious time and skill to help us raise much needed funds for the Vizslas in our care.
We would like a say a huge thank you, firstly to Hartwig Humpel for letting us use this stunning image of the beautiful and regal ‘Lea’ and secondly to the amazing artist Penny Snook who has drawn this incredible image for us to use. Thank you to you both from the bottom of our hearts.
Please submit your ideas below & feel free to share!
The cards will be going on sale in the next few weeks from our online shop!
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.
Meet Jango a very spoilt and highly adored handsome boy!
Jango was adopted at the beginning of the year through no fault of his own and has well and truly got his paws under the table.
With acres of land on the backdoor of his luxury pad he enjoys lots of walks exploring new places and meeting new dogs and people. When he’s at home and his owner, Sam is working he takes residence on ‘his’ footstool in front of her desk and has a little snooze.
Sam said “I can’t imagine life without him – he brings me so much joy and makes me laugh everyday”.
This double duo are brothers who have just embarked on their new lives at their new home.
These two are completely inseparable, best friends and do not leave each other’s side.
They now live in the middle of the countryside surrounded by fields, woodland and magical rivers. They are loving exploring (always keeping an eye on each other) and are utterly adored by their new owners.
This is the beautiful Jess who was rehomed at the start of the year. Through no fault of her own, her owners working hours increased so they didn’t feel they had enough time to give her the love and exercise she deserved and needed. As a very much loved girl we had to find her a wonderful, special home – she now lives with another family, where she goes to work everyday with her owner and is showered with kisses and cuddles from her smaller owners every evening. Her days are filled with exploring the vast countryside on their back doorsteps & she is one loved, happy girl.
Beautiful Brecca arrived safely at Sylvia’s last weekend.
She is very sweet natured and has fallen in love with one of our other dogs – Mac. Sylvia is working with her everyday to build up trust and teach her some more English! She must still think she’s in Spain with all this glorious weather!
She won’t be going anywhere for a little while until we are completely happy we know her inside out. From what we can tell so far, she’s a lovely young lady, with lots to give.
We will be considering homes from existing applications.
We have some lovely news to share with you all today.
This is Breca (right) who is an 8 month old Vizsla from Spain. Breca was found dumped at the side of the road a little while ago and was rescued by Weimaraner SOS where she was placed into the safety of foster care.
Breca was found in an awful condition, where it is assumed as she has little to zero prey drive she was dumped by a hunter who had no use for her.
Well the good news is – She is now on her way to the UK! There were lots of tears from her foster family but we are looking forward to welcoming her to VR HQ where she will stay with Sylvia. She will need to learn some English and have some re-training as well as acclimatise to our rain and cold weather (fingers crossed the sun comes out) but before long she will be ready to start her new life with a new family. We already have potential homes in mind for her but until she’s been in our care and assessed we are unsure which will be the best fit for her or her new family.
If you would like to keep up to date with her travels to the UK keep an eye on our page as we will share updates.
If you would like to donate to help her with her new life in the U.K. any donation however small is greatly appreciated – our PayPal is firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
