Vizsla rescue with
HUNGARIAN VIZSLA BREED RESCUE
What do you think, if you read the above title? Is it
unequivocal to everyone, that this is about saving abandoned
vizslas, not protecting endangered species? Why do we have to
save Vizslas at all? Where would they been taken, and by whom?
Do you have the same question after reading
the title or just want to get some information?
We’d like to introduce the work and purpose
of Hungarian Vizsla Breed Rescue Team
What does “breed rescue” means and why is it necessary?
The breed rescue main task is to save
abandoned, lost ones of the given breed, take them to safe
place, help them, get medical treatment and find new home
for them, monitoring and keep up-to-date list of lost and
find dogs. Mostly the human irresponsibility is the cause of
our work. A vizsla baby is one of the cutest puppies,
therefore they are so popular. But a puppy become an adult
very soon, and it may cause problem or trouble to the family
n the owner had not taken in
consideration the real personality of vizsla before his
decision of choosing a breed
If a vizsla doesn’t get enough
possibility of exercising body and mind as well, he gets
bored and finds the way to exercise himself: starts to ruin.
Even the cutest vizsla baby is a DOG that needs control and
MUST NOT be the boss of the pack – if so he tries to take
the control that will lead to severe problem, by any chance
to danger ... So the dog soon has to leave the family (or
will be taken to the vet for the final shot ... )
Also illness is common reason for giving
away a dog, because the owner is not able or willing to pay
for the costly medical treatment.
These dogs find themselves in shelters,
dog pounds or even worse in the streets.
Naturally there are cases, when the
changed circumstances force the owners to find new home for
the beloved dog for his sake.
- Who works as a breed rescue team for Hungarian Vizslas?
The Hungarian Vizsla Breed Rescue Team is a workgroup of
“Futrinka utca” Dogrescue Association, Budapest. The members
of the team are vizsla loving persons, who work voluntarily
in their spare time beside their jobs and families.
- Dogs can be taken to the program from other shelters,
dog pounds, owners, or from the streets
as transmitted dogs.
- How many vizsla is need to be rescued, and where they
could be placed?
Vizsla is a very popular breed, unfortunately puppy-mills
know that, and produce plenty of vizsla-babies without
papers, health check and proper care, and sell them in very
low price. 100-120 vizslas per year get in our association’s
care. Our association unfortunately does not have own
shelter so far the rescued dogs are placed in hired kennels.
As the number of abandoned dogs is above our capacity
vizslas in need can get in only after a long waiting time.
Even when we do not have enough free place, we try to help:
we keep in contact with the owner asking patience, in urgent
cases we try to find temporary homes or ask for help from
other dog rescue associations. Till we found place, we can
advertise them in our website
Can they find new owners, how they can fit in?
- What kind of treatment do our dogs get?
All our rescued dogs start the new life at our VET where
after a general health check, they are vaccinated, get
deworming treatment, passport and microchip, and any
necessary medical treatment. Our dogs will be neutered
before moving to new owners, to prevent several serious
illness and not-planned litters. In the hired kennels, we
provide them continuous supply including regular walks 2-3
times a day, play, exercise, clean kennels, fresh water,
food, medicals if needed.
After accepting our terms and condition, and signing the
Adoption Contract, the new owner and the chosen dog can
start their new common life. Previously, we talk to the
applier by phone and in live, we go and check their place.
Unfortunately there are more abandoned, thrown out dogs in
Hungary, than good, responsible owner. That’s why a few of
our rescued vizslas are rehomed abroad, through our German
partner organisation Vizsla-in-Not eV. Their terms and
conditions are even more strict then ours. They control
families in many step. The proof is a lot of picture of the
happy rehomed dogs we receive regularly.
What do the breed rescue group need and how can you help
As a non-profit association, we can cover the costs of the
dogs non but by donations that is always fewer than our
charges and the number of vizslas in need. We dearly thank
any financial help, regular or one-time, small or bigger.
