RUSTY - Story coming

Original story, May 2014: Rusty... yes, another vizsla named Rusty... is an 8-9 yr old purebred vizsla, tail docked and dew claws off. He is a big goofy friendly boy who is sure everybody wants to be his best friend. He was reportedly trained for hunting as a puppy but was turned into a shelter later in life for being gun shy. He does not appear to be noise shy, he is crate trained (but doesn't need it) and is confident and outgoing with everyone. They just don't come any more outgoing than Rusty. He is people oriented but needs work on recall and leash walking. He is interested in the cat in his foster home but not aggressive and would be fine with a dog savvy cat. He loves car rides and road trips.... oh, and toys! Here is a video of Rusty settling into life as a happy vizsla.

June 2014: Rusty just spent 3 days camping at the National Old Time Fiddle Contest in Weiser ID where he proved he is one of the most sociable and happy vizslas ever. He wasn't the least bit nervous about the commotion, kids, vendors or music and loved everyone he met.
