Gus's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gus's Story...


Seeking a forever home for our 5 year old pure-bred Viszla, Gus. He has a solid training base and is very well behaved. He does need an average of an hour of vigorous exercise (running, chasing balls, playing with other dogs; he will not run around in the yard by himself). He loves working and follows commands well (Sit, Lay, Stay, Leave It, Out, Come, Heel, Follow, Up, Shake, Kennel-Up, On Mat, etc.).

He is good with kids, but we feel he is better suited for a home without small children because he is excessively protective of the kids, constantly pacing when the kids are home checking all doors and windows and doesn't allow strangers near them. We have also had a hard time with his exercise requirements due to our kids' schedule.

He has a typical Viszla temperament (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/). Playful. Very sensitive. He's leash trained (won't pull or cross in-front of you). Not a great hunter. Needs an experienced dog owner that will be his pack leader.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gus, a Otsego Vizsla dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Vizsla for sale in Otsego, or seeking a Vizsla dog from a breeder in Otsego.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Otsego already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Otsego breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Vizsla breeders who help with Vizsla rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Otsego paves the way for another one to be saved.
