|Rescue Me ID: 16-11-14-00471Sophie (female)|
A very loyal companion and sweet friend! Our best guess is Sophie is a German Shepherd and Vizsla mix (based on what other dog owners have told us). She would make a really great companion for someone who enjoys the outdoors, hiking, running, just being out! She requires everyday exercise if possible to get out her high-energy nature except if it's raining then she doesn't care much about going out, she's quite the snuggle bunny. Thankfully her most favorite thing in the world to do is fetch! She will do that until she is so tired she flops down to bask in the delight of a good run! The way we best achieve this is by a favorite game using the 'chuck it' a handy tool 'ball thrower', finding a open field and you're SET. She will love you forever and do that any day of the week. She is incredibly agile and fast, a very precise dog (think Olympic athlete). She blows my mind every time she catches a ball in midair, sometimes even before it ever hit the ground! Would make a great running companion if that's your thing and in general LOVES being outdoors with you. The following are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what she has to offer: Crate Trained. She is crate trained and loves her 'den'. That's her sacred space and she finds refuge there many times throughout her day. It's where she sleeps most of the time and will go to if a thunderstorm is happening or just anytime she wants to of if you need her to she is happy to so. Knows the following commands: Sit, Stay, Lay down, Spin, Leave it, Come, Out, and many other human words. You can basically talk to her and she mostly understands what you're saying. Active: As stated above she loves to be moving and playing. Affectionate: She wants to be where ever you go/are which makes her a wonderful dog to take with you on trips, she's the perfect pal. Dislikes being left at home and if we are going to work when we can't bring her we leave her with a peanut butter stuffed kong to keep her mind and taste buds busy and she usually does very well. Loves the water, In the summer it's simply amazing to take her out to a river or stream and just have a ball! She will fetch sticks and swim them back to you. Great for someone who enjoys being at water, rivers and hikes. Sophie is Very loyal and while can become protective. This is something to be aware of as people come into your (her family's) space. She has the tendency to bark at first and doesn't always do the best with strangers (typically large unknown males), sudden movements or folks coming into her space. It depends on the person and how they sniff out. We've found that greeting new people outside first is always best, and taking it slow. This is a typical dog trait to a degree and I'm certain that Sophie simply didn't get enough people exposure during the critical age and most likely received the negative aspects from certain people in her past. With patience and continued consistent training I'm sure Sophie would improve greatly. We've seen much progress on this front since we've been working with her. This would be a great area of work to continue in order to round out the rough edges and social awkwardness she has with new people. I mention this as I feel it's important to know for hers and everyone's safety. She requires an alert individual. She is a complex animal with many layers to learn as I continually have. She will teach you more about yourself than you may have wanted to know! She gives back in many more subtle ways through your own learning experience of working with an animal who can use a little help/patience and love. As mentioned above she obviously has had some mistreatment in her past, therefore she is a bit fearful of new people and also does not do well with children (my guess is kids in her previous house were really hard on her). We have never had any serious issues with these things, but it's important to be aware of at all times and to not take chances. Shes good with other dogs most times, but will not be good with cats or any other small-size furry animals in your house. We've learned this the hard way through personal experience. She has a naturally high prey drive that would be better suited not having those temptations for her until proper training has been accomplished. Sophie is free to the Right home and comes with Many toys and accessories (Create, car seat cover, many toys and treats, balls, ball throwers, bed, etc. Only serious heartfelt conscious individuals will be considered as I'm not in any way willing to let her go to a home where someone will not properly care for her. Please contact me to talk about more details and setup a meeting to see if Sophie is right for you! Neal (540) 830-4103 (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-10-30-00451June (female)|
June didn't have a great start in life but is looking to find her forever home to start her happy ending. June was originally turned into the shelter through a hoarding case, she lived in a home over-run with dogs, none of which were spayed or neutered and multiplying fast. Coming from an environment where there were just so many dogs, June was thin, flea-ridden, and scared to death from being under socialized. Since she's been in foster care she has made great leaps into becoming an affectionate and well behaved companion. Although still a little bashful with strangers, she now only takes a few minutes to warm up to people when we once struggled just to be able to pet her. Her hair, which was, at intake shaved down to her skin because the copious amount of fleas on her, now has grown back thick shiny. She has steadily gained weight with regular good quality meals. June has very happily discovered belly rubs and can't get enough of them. She is a very quick learner and takes direction well. When we initially got her, June had no concept of potty training and within just the first couple of weeks in foster care had it down. She has really started to find her personality, which turns out to be a very happy-go-lucky, eager to please, goofball of a dog. She is still learning what toys are and how to play with them but has soon as she has them figured out we are sure she will find great joy in them. June gets along with most dogs but occasionally meets one she isn't a fan of. We estimate her to be around 4-5 years old. **Northern Virginia and Fredericksburg area applicants only** Wanna meet me?

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Vizsla in Virginia|
Vizsla Dogs can make good pets in Virginia if they match your IifestyIe. The Vizsla is an elegantly proportioned hunting dog. Vizslas are affectionate family companions and are wonderful with active children. Vizsla usually get along well with other dogs and can be socialized to get along with cats, but have an instinct to hunt smaller animals such as gerbils or rabbits. Vizslas may become nervous if not thoroughly socialized and given plenty of exercise and attention. Vizslas need a good sized yard.
