Thank you Animal Friends of the Valley's for helping him. Please no calls or emails to the shelter so we don't overwhelm him but if you live close stop in. You can even put a hold on him if you want to be the first in line to adopt him once he is released for adoption. Updates will be here as they come in:…

    EDIT: Since a lot of people are asking: I will be doing my best to keep you all posted with updates on my channel here and on Instagram, same username both places (HuskyVizsla)!

    UPDATE! New dad here! Thank you so much for all the love and positive messages! It's absolutely amazing how many people are asking and caring about how "Bear" is doing. His new name is Shadow (Shadow Moon), and he is like a different dog already! He is healthy, happy and loved, and I will do my best to keep you all updated! He is definitely a Hungarian Vizsla, and now have an older Husky sister. She had a Vizsla brother for about 4 years, so we are well aware of the needs and quirks of the breed, and they absolutely love each other! Vizslas are the ultimate Velcro dogs, and I expect him to keep sticking to me like a Shadow, which is part of why he got his name!
  • Just so heartbreaking, can’t believe people treat animals like that, so appreciative of what you’re doing keep up the good work
  • This was a precious story and I’m so thankful Bear got adopted. You were so sweet with him. I loved it when his tail started wagging. I also loved it when he backed up and took the treat from you so gentle. I’m hank you for all you do!
  • To Bear's new dad: bless your heart!!!! I'm so happy you are giving him a home!!! Please take such good care of him!
  • Thrilled that Bear has been adopted. Hope he's smothered in kisses, treats, love and a lot of fun. He really IS A GOOD BOY!

    I can tell he’s a sweetheart, he’ll come out of his shell soon 🥰 My parents dog is a rescue from Korea and he was super shy avoiding all eye contact first week. Now now all he wants is eye contact that’s how he expresses his love ❤
  • It breaks my heart to see him in this neglected condition. This is my first time visiting your site. He seems like such a friendly dog. Seems very intelligent. So much expression behind those eyes. Thank you for bringing to our attention these beautiful animals.

    Poor boy! I'm so glad he has a home now! He absolutely looks like a pure bred Vizsla to me, though I notice that he doesn't have a docked tail, which would normally been done by a Vizsla breeder.

    I've owned one pure bred and currently 2 rescue Vizsla Lab mixes. Vizslas are wonderful loyal companions and incredibly smart. They are pointers and retrievers as hunting dogs, and often called velcro dogs because they will be their owner's shadow 24/7. They have an incredibly sensitive temperament and badly want to please their owner and have their approval. So very harsh words or harsh training methods can damage them permanently. This sweet boy is amazing. He's so nervous and full of anxiety, as would be expected from a Vizsla in his shape, but he was so ready to be loved and treated with respect and kindness. I just cried happy tears to know he has a good life ahead of him full of love.
  • I went to the shelter today to visit "Bear"! Everyone would be thrilled to hear that he seems very happy and energetic! He has a little red squeaky bone toy that he loves. He licked my hand immediately and rubbed his head on my legs and arms, eager for affection. What a sweetheart!

    So happy to see that Bear or now "Shadow" has his forever home. Thank you Rocky and all the other amazing people that take the time and have the heart to help these sweet babes. He's such a beautiful boy! I just don't understand how people can be so cruel when all they want is love and a family. Ya gotta love them fur babies...Wags and wet kisses from Texas!!🐾💙🐾💙
  • @jhs1975
    Right on, Bear. You are a very good boy. Best wishes for finding the loving family you deserve.
  • @MrArcadyus
    After that first treat his entire demeanor change. He went from not trusting you to thinking you may be kind and he could feel less stressed. That was really amazing to see.
  • Oh so happy for Bear!! What a beautiful sweetheart he seems to be. I was in tears when I saw how emaciated he was😢 I hope his new owners are the kind of folks who love dogs the way that we do. They are truly our best friends and way more loyal than most people!!
  • It was so cute when he started wagging his tail. You could tell his whole demeanor just changed, and he was happy. Just a few kind words and a little attention. That’s all animals need. Well, besides Food. Lol
  • @leiponimoih8625
    This is not lack of education. This is neglect and cruelty. So glad he got rescued. He is a sweetheart!!
  • What a beautiful pup!❤ I'm thrilled to hear he was adopted. His previous owners missed their opportunity to be good parents for a great pup. Way to go!!
