You have to love a dog named after Bill Paxton’s character from Aliens.  (Well, I do, anyway.)  More information can be found at From the vizsla rescue list:

Just an update on the dogs found in Nashville, and a plea for help. We are trying to raise money for Hudson’s surgery. The estimated cost to repair his leg is $2600. Our club raised $370 bathing dogs last Saturday and we’ve had several generous donations by individuals, but we are only half way to our goal. If you would like to contribute, please go to

Hudson is scheduled for surgery on June 11th. He and Hunter are being fostered separately, and both are doing well.

Thanks for your help!

These boys have not been claimed. Yesterday they were both neutered. One boy was x-rayed for an ongoing limp, which unfortunately revealed an old elbow fracture that never fused. We are shopping around for an orthopedist and will probably be starting a collection drive soon. Our vet said it could be upwards of $3000 to repair. 😦

  1. These stories break my heart. Thank God they were found and taken care of. I would like to help more, but with looming possible huge vet bill for Daisy’s surgery and now a sick kitten, I can only offer a few dollars, but I would like to send at least that. So if you send me the info I can send off a donation.


  2. Whew… makes Dozer’s surgery look cheap by comparison. Seeing as how I’m now broke (due to aforementioned surgery) and living off rice and squash, I can only give my very best wishes. But they are the best wishes I have. Definitely not second-hand wishes.

    Jim says: Hudson needs these, too. 🙂
