Hello there, my
name is Willow and I am around 6 to 8 months old. They say I am a
Vizsla/German Shorthair mix. You can see the red Vizsla coat
underneath my mahogany color. But no one knows as I was picked up by
animal control in a small village in New Mexico. My plight was
forwarded to Rita at 2nd Chance Vizsla Rescue in Colorado.
Arrangements were made to transport me to Colorado and 2nd Chance
Vizsla Rescue, along with Draco, who everyone thinks is my brother.
Doesn’t look anything like me, but we really love each other and
were glad to see each other.
My first stop was Albuquerque to get the rest of my vet work done
along with my brother, then off to Colorado. We stayed temporarily
with a 2CVR volunteer in Albuquerque. She was very nice and we had a
lot of fun playing with her two dogs.
So, more about me. I am a very happy puppy with lots and lots of
energy. I get along with other dogs real well. I have LOTS of energy
and love to run and play with all the dogs, especially Draco since I
can push him around more.
Hi: Willow here. Time for celebration, this past Sunday I started my
new life with my forever family Emily and Dan. They are very nice
people and drove me to my new home in Arizona. I have really taken
to my new parents but I do miss my dog buddies at my foster home.
There are other dogs here to play with but I am a little unsure of
everything. I am told there is a Vizsla puppy down the block that I
am going to meet. Can’t wait to meet him. Thank you everyone for
saving me and helping me find my forever home.
Dan and I just wanted to let you all know that Willow is adjusting
great and is truly a part of our family, so much so that Dan will
say hi to her first when he comes home instead of me. I knew it
would happen, but we have been bitten by the Vizsla love bug and I
don't think we can ever go back. Dan has already asked me to start
looking for another one to rescue (I on the other hand know better
and we will wait at least a year before we hop on that wagon).
Willow loves to play with us now, although we have had to take away
her favorite toy Larry because fabric/rope toys appear to be tasty
and delicious to Willow and consequent she tries to eat them rather
than play with them. She loves her Kong ball and cow hooves to chew
on though. We have already filled the amazon cart with far too many
Christmas gifts for her. She is our furry baby and we couldn't be
more in love. She is still a little hesitant around new humans and
dogs but she has started to warm up much quicker. She has had 3 play
dates with the neighborhood dogs this week alone and has made fast
friends. We hope to introduce her to the puppy Vizsla down the
We just want to thank you all for the work that you do. We love our
Willow and we couldn't have gotten her without you all. I have
attached some photos and videos for your viewing pleasure. Feel free
to post these on social media for 2nd chance if you desire. She has
been to Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon so far in her travels.
Also we should have never started letting her on the bed because now
she is our 5am wakeup call with cuddles and kisses ;)
All the best,
Emily & Dan (& Willow)
