We just adopted a Vizsla mix and she has "pointed" twice now while walking her. I'm not sure what she was pointing at but both were perfect points and quite beautiful. She is only about a year old. Is this common in Vizsla's?

Behavior & Training > Very Scared Rescue

Marli Rose

What was that?!?

We rescued Marli Rose about 5 weeks ago. She was very scared with tail tucked and a worried look. We knew that she was going to require a lot of work and patience before getting her so now I'm asking for advice. When we first brought her home she was very nervous but settled onto the couch and stayed there. She would not leave the couch unless someone took her out to potty or walked her into the kitchen to offer drink/food. The second day, I was taking her for a walk when she got loose from her collar. She found her way back to our home where she spent the next three days circling and barking at the house. She would whine to come in but would not walk all the way in until the third day. Once in, she stayed on the bed or couch and would not leave the spot until one of us led her to another location. She has gotten away from us on two other occasions and followed a similar pattern as above. When she's outside during the day she seems to have fun with the other dogs but at night she wants to come in but acts scared too. She is back inside with us currently and we walk her at least 2 miles a day and have taken her out on a long lead to play with the other dogs but she will just sit there and not participate. We really want her to be happy and would love for her to learn that she can go outside and inside the house. We live on a large farm surrounding other large farms and the neighbor's dog is always over playing with our dog. Some improvements have been her getting off the couch to follow one of us to another room and the last time she got loose, she stayed closer to us outside. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what else we can do to make her feel more confident?
