Seamus came into rescue from his former home. He was born in 11/02 and was given up in 4/03 to a local Humane Society as being "too much pup". He has a natural tail and dew claws but appears to be all V. The family who asked us to take him adopted him from the H.S. and after 4 months they agreed he was too much. They had several small children that he was being too unruly and mouthy with. So Yugi came to the Dowdell house and quickly fell into the routine and found a great buddy in Abe.

It did not take his forever mom long to find him. Eileen had recently lost her best friend Hector but was ready to open her heart and life to another Vizsla boy. Yugi was renamed Seamus and he will have big shoes to fill but we are sure that he can lighten her heart. Seamus loves to play with other dogs and will get to go to work daily. Eileen reports that he has already had a romp on the beach, swam in a pool, and gone on hikes in the hills. He comes well to his name and is truly a velcro V. Thanks for giving this young wild boy a great chance in life and for being such a great chauffeur all the way from UT to CA!

Jun 2008, Eileen writes: Seamus is now 5-1/2 years old. Honestly, sometimes I wondered if that wild child would ever make it this far! Seamus has matured greatly since I first adopted him at 8 months. He still has a wild streak, but he has, gratefully, calmed down and is a well-behaved pleasure to be with (okay 80% of the time!).
