NELLIE (was MOKI VELVET)

It starts with Rosie's story... Rosie was brought to a small town shelter in mid-November 2011 as a very pregnant stray. Lucky for Rosie, June with Idaho Weimaraner rescue wasted no time going to pick her. Having pups in a rural city pound would not have been safe for Rosie or her babies and her Vizsla impersonation was good enough we couldn't turn her away. It was truly a Thanksgiving blessing for Rosie and on Nov 27th she whelped 16 pups. A huge "Thank You" goes to the VizslaTalk community who came together to support Rosie and her pups by giving them names and providing funding for their care. Against all odds, all 16 puppies thrived. Rosie may not have any Vizsla in her but at times we have to make decisions from a distance and we would rather err on the side of taking in a mix than missing a Vizsla in need.

Nov 2012: Moki got to go to a wonderful home that had a Vizsla from us prior. Living in a mountain home with lots of places to run and play. Her mom did tell us that age was catching up with her as a puppy was a lot more work than she remembered. The family has faced tragedy as well and recently wrote: She has been a wonderful dog, especially the last few months. We lost our home in a wildfire on Aug. 29th. We spent a few weeks in a small one-bedroom aparment, then in a 2-bedroom and are now in a home. She has room to run again and has met new friends. We've been blessed with her patience and wonderful temperment. She has always been a great cuddler and that is so helpful now.
