WILSON (was RAGS aka ITTY BITTY)

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: Wilson was the smallest puppy, known to June as Itty Bitty and named Rags by the VTalk community but you wouldn't know it to see him 1 year later as he is neither "itty bitty" nor "raggity" and has grown into a handsome prince. Steve & Monica were looking to add a pup to their family as a buddy for both Steve and 2-yr old Toby who is a bit shy. There was nothing shy about Rags the day he stepped forward and picked Steve to be his dad! He got the new name of Wilson to go with his new life where he enjoys going to work with mom on occasion, play dates with friends and hanging out with dad. He learns quickly and was a star in his puppy classes.
