Mia is an approx 1-yr old vizsla mix (best guess on the mix is setter or gsp) who came to us as a stray from a Utah shelter. She is a friendly and outgoing high energy sweetheart... good with kids, cats and other dogs but may be too rambunctious for small children. She needs basic training but is comfortable in a house, is a quick learner and aims to please. She suffers from mild separation anxiety and will do best in a home able to work with her as she adjusts to her new routine. She is learning about crate training, needs work on house manners and not jumping up on people but if you can provide her the exercise and leadership she needs you won't find a more loving friend. Mia is spayed, current on vaccines and micro chipped and does well at The Dog House doggie day care.

May 2006: Dana reports that Mia is fitting in well, getting along with the other dogs and is showing a lot of birdiness. Mia is keeping everyone on their toes and in training mode as she still needs work on not jumping up on people, recall, etc but she is a good traveler and, of course, she knows that no one can resist meeting her when they see her. Dana found out just how big she runs when she let her off leash in a field and she ran alright... right up to a soccer field and started running with the players after the ball! Luckily the players were amused and wanted to meet their newest team member. She is learning to not step on Stubbs the senior doxie and is keeping Patches the dalmation in shape by keeping her on the move. Dell is looking forward to working with her on birds.

June 2006: Beautiful Mia keeps her new family on their toes and on the go. We are glad she could be there to ease the passing of Stubbs the daschie. She is getting lots of runs in the field at the family ranch and has a new little vizsla sister to help raise. Hey Mia, don't teach her any of the bad stuff okay? We're looking forward to some good bird hunting stories when fall rolls around. Enjoy your rare black vizsla and remember to have fun!
