Hello there my
name is Penny and I am a 3 year old purebred Vizsla. My former
family took me to the local shelter in Carlsbad. They told the
shelter that they thought I was pregnant and didn’t want me anymore.
The shelter contacted 2nd Chance Vizsla Rescue and they arranged for
a foster volunteer to come and pick me up. I was very lethargic and
evidence of having my skull crushed when I was a pup, caused some
concern. The nice man that picked me up and was fostering me took me
to the vet and they determined I was not pregnant and after some
tests also said I was healthy… but why so glum? Well, whatever my
life was like before, I’m not saying - but I was very depressed!
Neal, my foster dad, was real worried about me. It took some time
but I slowly started getting out of my funk, at least I was getting
up out of bed. No leaps and bounds but it was still an improvement.
Turns out Neal was also in the process of looking for a Vizsla to
adopt and fell in love with me and wanted to adopt me although was
very concerned about my depression. One day Neal got another Vizsla
foster in the house named Ruger. Ruger recognizing another Vizsla
went straight to work on getting me to play – he must have sensed
the puppy in me just begging to break out. Well Ruger was able to
break down the walls of my depression and chase all the blues away!
Neal was very happy when he saw the new me Ruger released and
decided to adopt both of us! The three of us make an incredible
family. Everyone, including me, is very happy
