This rescue is a privately run rescue operation for the Wire-haired Vizsla.

 Our mission is to aid Wire-Haired Vizslas who have been abandoned to shelters, picked up as strays, or surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them. 

We are supported entirely by donations, and therefore welcome/appreciate any donations of funds or supplies.

Fortunately, we do not get many dogs into rescue, due to the small numbers of Wire-Haired Vizslas in this country, but we do sometimes have a dog who needs a new home. If you feel adopting an adult dog would be the right choice for you, please contact us by phone or email for an application.

All dogs available will always be posted here on this page, so check back now and then for available dogs. 

Also, if interested in volunteering your time to foster, transport, or evaluate a dog, get in touch with us as well and request a volunteer application. There are many ways in which you can help by volunteering in the area of your expertise. 

We always welcome support to help us achieve the goal of safely rehoming dogs in need. We welcome donations of supplies, or monetary donations to our rescue funds.

For any rescue related inquiries, please feel free to contact me:

9 yr old neutered male, located in Michigan. 

He is neutered, will be up to date on vaccines, negative heartworm and stool check done just last week. He gets along with other dogs. He has had basic field training as a young dog, but is rusty from not being hunted for years..., but with some practice and refreshing, he could probably hunt again. Hes gentle with children, but wasnt raised with kids. Hes housetrained and is used to being left home alone when owner worked, but was never crated (so isnt yet crate trained).
There will be a small adoption fee. Interested parties should contact me at  

Ozwald is no longer in need of a home. thank you all for your interest in him!

Special Needs five-year old Wirehaired Vizla looking for his forever home.  Rowdy was rescued after his owner died and is currently living with his foster family in Ottawa, Ontario.  Rowdy is an extremely friendly dog.  He is perfect for a busy household as he is an extremely affectionate dog.  He is incredible with children, adults and other dogs.  Rowdy does well on his walks, only barks when he is looking to play, and really just wants to hang out with everyone.  He suffers from stage 1 hip dysplasia and arthritis but he is on medication and it certainly does not impact him walking or playing.  His forever home must be willing to give him his medications and the affection this wonderful dog deserves.  I can be reached at home at
