Their story:
We are looking for a home for this pair where they can stay together as they are very devoted to each other. Amber & Austin are purebred Vizslas who might be perfect for a senior hunter or as wonderful house companions. Amber is about as mellow as a vizsla can be and loves to lounge in the sun or on a dog bed. Austin is more active and loves to chase tennis balls. Amber & Austin made it out of a UT shelter on the 24th of December as we received a last ditch call to save them. They were found running loose and they had matching collars but no ID tags. Amber & Austin are 8-yr old littermates, born approx Oct 1996. Information from the previous owner is that all of the pups looked to be pure except Amber, who was "fluffy". Based on input from the Vizsla community, she carries the long-haired gene which is rare but happens occasionally (see photo at www.vizsladogs.com/ARTICLES/V_traits.htm). Amber is 22 inches 50 lbs, Austin is 24 inches, 60 lbs, tails docked, dews removed. Both are house and crate trained, are good on vet visits and at the boarding kennel, like to chew bones, give kisses and go for car rides. No cats! They know heel, sit, come, kennel, and get em up (find the birds). Neither is gun shy, afraid of thunder or fireworks and both like the water.

June 2006: Amber & Austin are now 10-yrs old and are still hoping to find that perfect retirement home with room in their heart for this bonded pair.

May 2007: After almost 4 years in foster care and now at age 11 it was decided that Amber & Austin were members of the Dowdell crew and would be best served by staying til the end of their days with Daryl & Rebecca.
