A Special Message from Robert and Jen

I hope everyone at South Side Farm is doing great. We are the family from Boston who owns the liquor store and we love Vizslas. We had 2 Vizlsas in the past who we loved dearly and life wasnít the same without them. We bought Molly from you 13 years ago and she had a wonderful life. She was the best dog anyone could ask for-every place we went people would ask where we found such a beautiful dog. Molly was great and we were very fortunate to have a perfect Vizlsa. We decided to get another Vizlsa 4 years ago and we bought one from a local breeder. The price was $200.00 cheaper than yours and we didnít have to travel-so we bought her from this breeder. She never looked like Molly, and we seemed to spend a lot of time at our Vetís for numerous reasons, and then we lost her to cancer. Iím glad we came back to South Side for our Max. He is the love of our lives! Max is great with our grandchildren and our cat has a new best friend! Thank you South Side Farm for giving us a wonderful dog who is part of our family and has made our life so happy and complete.

Stoli the Vizsla from South Side Farm
ties the knot on Good Morning America

Just wanted to share with you a picture that aired on Good Morning America on Halloween. Stoli (my dog) and Hennessy (my neighbors dog) got married on Halloween. Stoli is the groom. He was born from the Feb. 7, 2006 litter. We walked them on Halloween and more people stopped and commented on the dogs then the kids. We found out last year that our neighbors who live behind us have a female who is 6 months older than Stoli. They play together almost everyday. We have a dog door in our fence and they play with each other all day long. They are very funny to watch, whether stalking, chasing, wrestling, or sleeping. We all love him so much, he is a giant mush, and as you can see we can pretty much do anything to him....Stacey G. (Setauket, NY)

It has been 2 full days that we have had Asha (our puppy), and I wanted to let you know how it was going. Well, she and my 2-year-old son, Adrian, have become BEST friends already, it's hilarious how they interact. I am happy to say she came to us already practically house-trained! She has had 2 accidents, but both were our fault for not seeing the signs. On the day we got her, we went to a local event, "Peace in the Park", near where we live. There she met so many people and children, and even some other dogs. She behaved very respectfully with the dogs, staying still while they sniffed her and waiting for them to approve before trying to initiate play. I was impressed! Her mother taught her well. She was also exposed to the noise of somewhat loud music being played live. At first, all of this made her nervous, but by the end of it she had come completely out of her shell and was running and playing with everybody. I think it was a great socialization experience for her. My son also got her to walk on a leash. She was following off the leash fine, but as soon as I attached it, she would park herself firmly wherever she was. Coaxing her forward with the smell of food wouldn't even work at that point. Then she realized that if she complied, she could catch up to where Adrian was and walk alongside him, and that was all the incentive she needed. She now walks on the leash, with or without my son, like a champ! She has even conquered her fear of the porch stairs. She's come along so much in just two days.. she's very intelligent, too. Using very small pieces of chicken, I taught her "sit" and "down"(as in lay down) in under 5 minutes, and more importantly, she now knows to sit or lay down in the presence of my son when she gets too excited, rather than jumping at him. She's already gone on many runs through the field across from our house and is loving life so far. Thank you for a wonderful girl. I've attached some pictures, and I'll be in touch to let you know  how she's doing in the future. Thank you!....Jackie (Herkimer, NY)

 

  

 

   
 

 

 

I am so happy that I chose to come to South Side Farm and patiently waited for a Vizsla puppy. Yogi is everything that I hoped for in a puppy very healthy, intelligent, energetic, playful, & affectionate. At 12 weeks of age I have already gotten him to sit, lay down, and shake on command. I will keep you posted as he continues to grow into a wonderful dog. Thank you again & I will most definitely be coming back to South Side Farm when I am ready for another Vizsla!!!

Our newest addition to the family is absolutely wonderful! He's enjoying life and his new home! He's got 4 acres to roam in the country area and 2 loving parents! As well as many many friends and family members that absolutely adore him as well! Along with a new home he's gained a big brother! (Our boxer) they are inseparable and are always snuggling. Here are a few pictures of them! We have named the vizsla, Xerxes (zerk-sees) and our boxer's name is, Bane!
I will send some more updates pics throughout his life! He's already getting bigger ! We LOVE our fur babies to pieces !! I have some better photos but they are on my big Nikon camera that I will send over another day! Thank you so much for everything ! Warmest Regards, Kristi & Jaso
(North Tonawanda, NY)

Update Just wanted to send some updated pictures of Xerxes ! He's doing GREAT! He loves his new home and his brother. They do everything together and don't like being apart. They watch all my shows with me (as seen in the one picture) , they stare out the window together, sleep together, etc. Two of their best friends are huskies and they all take walks together (seen in another picture). He has such a big personality and couldn't have asked for a better dog. Anyways , Xerxes is getting so big and wanted to send you some updated pictures and status of how he's doing . Thank you so much again for our fur baby! Krist & Jaso (North Tonawanda, NY)

I just wanted to update you on our pups.  Things are certainly lively around here and it's great.  Willow is great with our new addition ,Piper, who is doing very well.  Piper is growing like a weed and looks as though she will be a bit bigger than Willow and just as beautiful! She is fun and smart and sensitive and such a joy!...Take care! Christine (Auburn, NY)

Attached are a couple photos of Gunnar (Vizsla puppy) and friends. He has established himself as a very loving member of the family.  He is well behaved, responds positively during training so far, and our vet was impressed with
how healthy he is.  Thank you so much for the pup and producing such wonderful dogs!

Here are some pics of Willow.  She is getting so big so fast!
She has a more predictable routine now which is making things easier. She
enjoys riding in the car so we pretty much take her everywhere. She's the happiest when she's right next to one of us which is just fine! She is so much fun and honestly one of the sweetest dogs I've ever run across. She has her crazy puppy times but she really tries hard to do what we want her to. She's so smart! We love her to pieces and are very grateful that we found South Side Farm! Thank you!....Christine (Auburn, NY)

Update

Everything is going very well with Willow!!  It's so hard to believe that it's been almost a year since we brought her home.  It seems like she's been part of our family forever.  She is so beautiful and smart and we love her so much!  She's been very healthy, strong, active and most importantly the most loving dog I've ever known. Well, we have decided that we would like to bring another one of your beautiful Vizslas into our home.  I was wondering if you have any litters planned this year.  We have a trip planned this summer and need to work around that so I figured I'd just contact you to see what your litter plans are. Here is our pretty girl (still a lap dog!!)...Christine (Auburn, NY)

Hope all is well. I have been meaning to check in all week but, that flew by.  With the new baby in the house - the routine's been a little hectic. However, I/we are proud to report he's been a very good boy, and is adapting well to his new life and family!  He finally slept through most of the night last night and Mommy/ Daddy feel a little more rested. We named him "Jax" and I have attached a few pictures from over the week-end.  With the weather being so nice - we spent it outdoors most of the time.  I'm sure that helped with his potty training.  He had his blanket, toys, water and all the love he needed. Not to mention the family was over on Sunday and he faired very well.  Not to mention, he sucked them all in to loving him! He is very loveable. Loves to give kisses and always be around us.  He has learned to sit (as best to be expected), he knows where to go potty and has even gone to the door on a few occasions.  His sister was not happy when she first met him but, is slowly getting better at playing nice.  It's going to be a very slow process but, we've got all the time. He loves going up and down the stairs and is such a happy little guy. He has been a wonderful addition and the house is back to being crazy busy, once again.  Although Max will never be forgotten, Jax has certainly filled that void and we look forward to many wonderful years. Thanks for everything!!....Regards....Lori & Chris (Mamlius, NY)

It has been over 2 months and we wanted to say hello. Melo is over 28
lbs now and is a smart and handsome boy! He is feisty yet
loving...everything you said a Viszla would be. And when teething is
over, he will be even more fun!
Thank you again for bringing him to our family.
Have a great summer!

I wanted to give you a quick update on Sally the Wonder Vizsla.
Sally has made a seamless adjustment into the Pick family. She is smart
and sweet, and GROWING. The vet saw her a few days after we brought her
home, and again last week, and said she gained 6 pounds in that month, and
is developing "beautifully." She is all legs now, and loves to use them!
I am sending a few pictures so you can see how your little girl is growing
up.
As you can see, she certainly is a sporting dog--football, basketball,
soccer. If it involves a ball--she's in!
We are so happy to have Sally, and so impressed with her beauty and brains
and sweet, sweet heart.
We are grateful to have found you, and your wonderfully bred dogs!
We will keep you up to date on our girl.
Sincerely,
Jenn and Billy (Huntington, NY)

Just wanted to send you an update (and note of thanks) to let you know
"Digger" is doing fine! We now live in Bozeman, MT (Digger & I) and I
can't begin to describe to you his enthusiasm and love for this 'Great
Outdoors'. After a painful divorce and the spouse's encouragement to just
give the dog up for adoption, I choose the better path, packed the Volvo
wagon and tossed her the keys to the house & other cars. Off we went!
(Digger & I)
To say that Montana is "Dog's Country" would be an understatement, also,
to say I have the best breed by far in the Vizsla Category would be
understating it as well! There is a breeder local here in Bozeman and I
have met several Vizsla owners. To say "Digger" powers out these others
would be an weak comparison, he's 84 lbs. of muscle & bone, incredibly
active on the snowshoe trail up in the Bridgers, and pond friendly in the
summer time. everyone comments on his health, size & temperament. He's
twice the size of the breed out here, more gentle & friendly then all -
did I mention 'Handsome' as well?
I joke with folks, and tell 'em we breed them "Big" in NY, but "Kudos" to
you, because of your first class care and attention to "Man's Best
friend". Not that I'll need another companion soon, Diggers only 5 YO,
but I'd fly back in a heartbeat to purchase from South Side Farm Dogs, without a
thought. Ps. I do miss those awesome Cannolis we had during our visit. Sincerely...Chef Scott (Bozeman, MT)

Just wanted to send you a picture of "Digger", the neighbor favorite!  As all the kids on the street and our neighbors love him.  He's really come into his own as an ever faithful companion and Brooke and I would have never selected or been more pleased with another breed.  His vitality and health are a tribute to your care and selective breeding process.  True champions! He is full on high energy out in the field and a faithful "at your feet" dog in the down times.  We continue to receive complements from family, friends and people we meet how gentle and loving he is to all people.  He is acute and intuitive to an owners desire and eager to please and receive commands. I am thankful you allowed us, and we took the time to choose the mother for our litter selection.  Though it took time for the next breading cycle, the wait was well worth the result of a fine dog with great attributes. I hope your success continues with such a fine bloodline of top dogs. Many Thanks....Scott & Brooke (Upstate, NY)

My Vizsla that was bred on your grounds is the best thing that happened to me. Glad to have a pup that keeps up with me and when it comes down to training, he's easier then I am. He's great with kids and all other dogs!!
Will definitely be getting every dog I have in life from your lands!!!...Chad Maggi (Chicago, IL)

Attached please find images of Ruby. She is the exemplification of the
Viszla breed and full of energy. In addition to "yard" time, we run her on
the treadmill for two 30 min. work-outs at 5+ mph. She gets on the
treadmill and barks when she's ready to go. Thanks for a great dog! I will
send you additional images as she progresses. Thanks Again!....Pat and Sue

Just wanted to let you know our South Side Farm Vizsla pups that we picked up from you on 2/6, Ayla and Chase are doing great. We had them both fixed today so I thought I would pass that info along to you since it was part of the contract we signed. I also thought you might like to see some pics from their basic obedience class we just finished last Saturday. They are very smart, learn very quickly and are a ton of fun. Chase is somewhat timid so we are working on getting him over his fears. Ayla on the other hand is very much the opposite and is pretty much all over anyone she meets. They totally love being together, romping in the yard as the weather warms up and going on their walks through the neighborhood. I also started taking Ayla out with my bicycle this week for the first time and she did really well with it. Thanks again for the pups....Karin (Oakland, NJ)

I hope you are doing well.  I wanted to take a minute this morning and
thank you again for my wonderful dogs (Vizsla puppy and Weimaraner puppy).  It's been a really rough year
for me--going through a divorce, moving to a new town and starting over.
The one constant thing in my life that I can count on is the love and
friendship my dogs give me every single day.  You can post this in your
testimonials, I am so lucky to have met you and your wonderful dogs.
Mine remind me every day to exercise and love life with the same
exuberance they do.  They have adjusted to our new home easily and
appear to be happier than ever.  I remember when I adopted Lily from
you, you asked me which dog would get more attention from
strangers--Prudence, my vizsla, or my new weim?  I finally have the
answer--ME.  Because everyone asks me why I was crazy enough to bring
the two most energetic dogs around into my life!  My answer--I couldn't
imagine a single day without them.  They are an inspiration.  Thank you
again--I have attached a beautiful recent photo of my girls.  Happy
Holidays!Best....Melanie (Highland, NY)

Your generosity has added a whole new level of fulfillment to our lives.  Lola (Vizsla puppy) is a wonderful dog -- filled with spirit and love for us and for the world around her.  She is absolutely the sweetest, most gentle, and most adaptable dog I have ever come across.  We live in the city and she is routinely exposed to different sounds, people, and experiences.  Whether it be the hand of a little toddler speedily moving towards her unannounced, another dog jumping at her, or a stranger transfixed by her beauty, she is always calm and friendly. 

I would like to share how much you blessed our lives with Lola by sharing our story with other folks.  Prior to turning to South Side Farm Dogs, we had a horrible experience trying to purchase a vizsla puppy.  Moments after arriving home with our new puppy, our dog began having seizures.  At first, I thought perhaps her running around the house, barking, and bumping into walls was a normal new puppy behavior.  However, as her condition worsened, it became clear to me that our puppy was not normal.  Over five seizures later at the animal hospital, we returned our dog.  I had pretty near lost confidence in the idea of owning a dog.  However, due to a referral from a good friend of mine who owns a lovely South Side Farm vizsla, Calle, I decided I should get in touch with South Side Farm. 

After speaking with South Side Farm, I learned that he did not have any new litters of vizslas available, but, due to my experience, he was willing to consider giving up one of the puppies from a past litter that he had been saving for himself.  My boyfriend and I drove all the way out to New York that weekend to meet the puppy.  She was so beautiful and so sweet!  I could hardly believe it.  I was still nervous about purchasing a puppy, but the staff of South Side Farm Dogs was extremely supportive, kind, and understanding.  They helped me feel comfortable about owning a puppy again and allowed me to realize my dream of owning a vizsla. 

Now, Lola, Bryan, and I spend as much time taking walks in the woods around Pittsburgh as we can.  Lola loves it when we provide her with the opportunity to walk by our sides without the leash and we love watching her run in the woods, climb up little hills, and point at birds.  What we love most though is that she always will stop, look back, and, if we are too far away, she'll wait for us patiently.  We are extremely lucky to have Lola in our family and I am so happy that the kind folk at South Side Farm Dogs allowed us to become dog owners....

I just wanted to write and give you a quick update on Goliath, our Vizsla that we purchased from you almost 3 years ago. He is the most beautiful, loyal dog that a family could ask for. He is so gentle with our children. At night he goes to bed with my son, and stays there with him until he gets up in the morning. We are so blessed to have him in our family! Attached is the picture that I included on our family Christmas card. Happy Holidays....Wendy (Hornell, NY)

Attached are some pictures and videos from our cell phone, today, of our Maggie (Vizsla puppy) and my daughter Danielle.  It seems that Maggie has found a new sport that she enjoys very much, swimming in our above ground pool.  This is the best exercise we have found for her, since running her is tough, in our city area. She just turned one year old on the 11th of July, and this pet has brought great enjoyment to our home.  My daughter and I are trying to talk my wife into getting a sister for her.  It may not be too hard, as Maggie has taken over all of our hearts. I hope that you can view the files, as I am new to this cell phone technology, via camera.  As I master the technology, I will send you better pictures. Thank you so much for a great dog....Robert (East Rutherford, NJ)

Chilli our wonderful Vizsla is doing great. She is finished with all her shots and is growing by the day. Chilli just loves to roller blade and throw football and play soccer with all the kids, she is really keeping us in shape. Chilli even took a swim in the ocean in Oct., she is everything we wanted . Now that it is cold out Chilli loves to lay right in front of our wood burning stove. I have attached a picture of Chilli at 5 months. I hope you and your family and everyone on your farm a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year....Mike (Townsend, DE)

We would like to thank you so very much for such a wonderful experience with all of you and the "new addition to our family", Colby (the Vizsla puppy)! He is such a pleasure. We had him completely house trained after 4 days in his new home. Not only is he adorable, but very smart! He already knows how to sit, and give us his paw, and loves his treats! We can't stop hugging and kissing him! His personality is exceptional. He's very affectionate, and eager to please. Everything you said he would be, he is, and more! He's been to the vet once since he's with us, and the vet couldn't believe what a beautiful pup he is, healthy, and said he had to come from an exceptional breeder. He is so right! You are the best, and we can't thank you enough for our new family member. We are considering a playmate for him he's so great! Thank you all so much! You are terrific!....Dale, Jesse, Nicolas and Colby S. (Elmsford, NY)

Well, the above family did decide to give Colby a playmate and this is what they wrote to us:

Warm regards....Kristin and Joe (Roselle, NJ)

It is with great appreciation that we write you this letter. In July we purchased a puppy, Niki. Chalk another mark to your perfect matching record! Niki is a magnificent puppy. She has all the qualities we were looking for. We had spent a significant amount of time researching the breed. We thought that our other Vizsla, Lola was one of a kind. We were wrong! Niki has shown all the adorable, loving, playful, faithful, and rambunctious traits that set the breed apart. This was our first time purchasing a puppy. Lola is from the Humane Society and Taby is a retired racing greyhound. At first we were a little apprehensive about going all the way to Albany form Fort Lauderdale for a puppy. But everyone was so nice and honest and took their time to answer all of our questions that we knew we wanted to get our new family member from you. Our weekend getaway to Albany was wonderful. Your recommendations for accommodations were excellent. When it was time to pick up our little baby, we were very impressed with your facility and really enjoyed the time we spent with you. We cannot say enough wonderful things about you and would recommend South Side Farm to anyone who is looking for a quality puppy that will be a valuable member of any family....Henry & Daniela B. (Ft. Lauderdale, Fl)

Well, it has been a while since we have given you an update on Niki. We are excited to tell you she has exceeded all of our expectations!!! She is so smart, fun, loving, intelligent, healthy, and so on. There is absolutely nothing negative that we can say, not only of the breed, but of Niki. She is almost 2 1/2 years old and still a playful "pup." We think she will be for a long time; which helps keep her older sister Lola (our Humane Society adopted Vizsla) in shape!!! These is no doubt in our minds that we will contact you again when we are ready to add another Vizsla to the family!!! We have included a picture for you to see her. You have no idea how much she enjoys the pool - even if no one goes in, she does....Henry & Daniela B. and Family (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

We purchased a  puppy from you in Aug. 2004 (she was from the July 4 litter).  Her name is Savannah.  She has been nothing but an absolute joy and we couldn't be happier that we decided on the Vizsla breed and South Side Farm Dogs.  Her active, loving and friendly temperament was a perfect match for us.  We would love to get another Vizsla but have decided to wait until we get a bigger yard.  When we do,  we will definitely be coming back to South Side Farm.  We recently had a baby and Savannah has been absolutely wonderful with him.  I am sending you some pictures of our perfect little Savannah.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed our first year with Savannah.  Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful    addition to our family....Shannon R. (Downington, PA)

South Side Farm is proud to receive a commendation from the Office of the Sheriff in Schenectady County. The owner donated a puppy to their K-9 program and an appreciative and elated Sheriff Harry C. Buffardi was kind enough to send this letter to South Side Farm expressing his gratitude for providing the department with such a gifted and talented puppy. Click on the letter to the left or read below what the Sheriff had to say about South Side Farm.

 

Thank you for the generous donation of a puppy. We have researched the pedigree of this dog and have found him to be of the highest quality and background of any dog that has ever entered our K-9 program.
 At the very earliest stages, we were able to see in this dog very stable and even tempered characteristics. As a puppy, this dog is unaffected by the environment and remains stable under adverse conditions. He is not timid in any way and continues to have drive and hunt for a source of odor when there is exterior noise and other environmental distractions that would shut down most dogs. We normally test dogs that are at least one year of age to look for these characteristics but found this temperament i your puppy when he was only eight weeks of age.
 We have named this puppy bosco and his training has begun with socialization and basic obedience. At 16 weeks of age we have found that he already has the ability to track subjects and has a sense of smell that I have never seen in a dog of that age. We will continue this training until he is about one year of age when we will begin his formal drug detection training. I predict that this training will be quite simple for Bosco and will be a key player in the war on drugs. One of our most experienced had handlers and police officer has already began taking him out in the field to socialize him to his future role as a police K-9.
 Not only are we grateful for this donation because of this dog's ability, we are appreciative because of the financial implications. For us to obtain a dog of this caliber and background would create an expense of five to ten thousand dollars. Because of your generous donation there will be no expense to the tax payers of this community. For this you are commended. Again, thank you for the generous and charitable donation....Harry C. Buffardi, Sheriff (Schenectady, NY)


 

 

South Side Farm is proud to have received the commendation from the Office of the Sheriff in Schenectady County. The letter to the left is a follow up to express, to the owner of South Side Farm, how well Bosco (the puppy South Side Farm donated) did in the K-9 program. Well, it appears that Bosco was is at the top of his class! Click on the letter to the left or read below what the Sheriff had to say about the puppy we donated!

 


Enclosed is a biographical data sheet we presented to a grand jury regarding KI9 Bosco for a case he was involved with. Bosco has been our most active dog in our K-9 program. He has made the most searches, made the most discoveries and found the greatest quantities. Though our K-9 does not always make a discovery on every search, because there may not be a presence of a target odor, I am convinced that Bosco has never missed a narcotic. As you were the donator of Bosco I thought you may be interested in this biographical sketch and interested in his accomplishments. We remain grateful for your generous donation of Bosco....Harry C. Buffardi, Sheriff (Schenectady, NY)


Just wanted to write and thank you for selling us such a great dog. Cooper is just over a year old now and has turned out to be a nice addition to the family. He and I had an opportunity to get out and do some bird hunting in Kansas this weekend. This was his first hunting trip and we had a great time together. I attached some picture I thought you might enjoy. The first picture is of Me, Cooper and a bird that he pointed out, the second is a photo of Cooper showing off his orange vest I bought him on the way and the third is of Cooper wondering why everything is so flat and dry. This dog is everything you said it would be and much more....Michael (Denver, CO)

Debby and I just wanted to write you to let you know how well our new Vizsla, Sukoi, is doing after almost two weeks at his new home here in Clearfield, PA.  It didnít take us long to fall in love with the little bugger.  He is more than we expected in a Vizsla puppy.  He is loving, playful and affectionate; heís interacting well with our older ShihTzu, Cosmo and adjusting well to my clients who come and go constantly from my home office.  Everyone comments what a handsome pup he is. You can tell his breeding is exceptional.  We want to thank you for the long phone conversations prior to our purchase and for all the information and direction you provided while guiding us toward the puppy most suited for us. Debby and I were both impressed with the South Side Farm; your grounds were immaculate and the staff was very congenial and helpful. We so appreciated the two hours that you and Lisa spent with us during our visit. The information you provided about our new puppy was very informative and comforting as you took the time to answer each and every one of our questions.  You can certainly tell a lot about the quality of your dogs by simply observing the effort and knowledge you put into your organization.   Once again, we must say, that you went way above and beyond what we expected in a breeder. As we left South Side Farm, and said goodbye, we received a big hug from you instead of just a handshakeÖ.it was obvious that a lifetime friendship had begun! Thanks from the bottom of our hearts....Tim and Debby (Clearview, PA)

Just wanted to give you an update on my beautiful little girl, Chloe. Let me tell you, she is quite the celebrity in my Boston neighborhood. Everyone knows who she is. She trots along on her leash and attracts every single person that walks by. The local restaurants know her and keep dog biscuits near their doors. She is the most lovable puppy that I've ever known.

I thought you would enjoy this picture of Picha. She is extremely entertaining and so bright and alert. And FULL of mischief. Picha is also a nosy little thing. Has to investigate everything...........including getting up close and personal with a skunk! At three am, no less. I thought she just needed a rare middle of the night potty break, which she did, and then, oh noooooooooo, she heard something interesting.. We both learned a lesson with that episode.
Hope all is well with you and yours. Picha Walling is not spoiled, is she??? GREAT DOG and we lover her!!! Thank you for everything....Charlene & Troy (Norwich, NY)

I am writing to you on this Thanksgiving to Thank you for my wonderful little boy, Rusty. He is a 5 month old Vizsla whom I purchased from you. This is my second dog from you, and I never thought any dog could steal my heart like my Jake. You see, I came to you for another companion. Every day that I awake, Jim and I look at our dog, and revel in the joy only a pet can give. Rusty is like no other. We are thankful for every moment spent with him. At 8 weeks he was house trained. At 12 weeks, he knew the basic commands. At 4 months, he is boundary trained within our large yard, he is fetching and retrieving on command, as well as giving high 5's when he is praised for his manners. Rusty has become a large part of our lives. He wakes up every morning! with bouncing energy that is filled with love, and unconditional desires to make us happy. The funny part is, we wanted Rusty to make us happy. We have a four wheelin' dog, a dog that steers the riding lawn mower, while cutting grass with us, and a dog who is so smart, he knows which car is the Adventure automobile just for him. His behavior in the woods, or in town have won much admiration. Everyone notices how uniquely happy Rusty is. I cried tears of happiness the day I left with Rusty, from the home he knew with you. I still cry knowing you have managed to give me such a wonderful gift to nurture, love and enjoy for many years to come. For the second time in my life, you have made me a very happy person. Giving Jim and me the chance to raise another one of your pups, is just what my broken heart needed. My hope would be that everyone remembers to continually feel the daily blessings a pet has to offer, and that we each take the time to give that extra thanks to you for the job you have become so proficient at doing. My "little baby" is growing into quite the young, dapper man. You have made my world a very special place....Jayme, Jim & Rusty K. (North Berwick, ME)

Debby and I just wanted to write you to let you know how well our new Vizsla,

Here is our Christmas photo, we are glad you enjoyed it. We cannot tell you how much these guys mean to us. They get along wonderfully and are always on the go. They have the best personalities and they are totally different from one another. Thank you for the wonderful experience and for two beautiful puppies! We hope all of you have a happy holiday season!....Denise & Doug (Clinton, MA)

I am enclosing a picture of "Max", who is by far the most intelligent, loving, well-mannered dog I have ever owned. I have owned many different breeds over the years, though this Vizsla is the best natured of them all. I want to also point out that I have never dealt with a more focused professional breeder. South Side Farm is immaculate, well-kept, and a wonderful nurturing setting for raising and maintaining such wonderful animals. Another phase I was impressed with was your personal involvement and screening process which ensures that all your animals are placed with the most suitable and compatible owners. I have never experienced such a complete process to own such a pure-breed puppy. Max is 6 months old, and doing incredibly well, growing by the minute, well-cared for and much-loved. I am very pleased and in your debt for all your graciousness and help, and that of your staff too. I will stay in touch and am looking forward to breeding information for Max as he approaches that time in his life.....David W. M. (Batavia, NY)


We just wanted to write again to update you about our Holly. She turned 1 in October and enjoyed her second Christmas with us. We always called her the clown of the house because she loves to play and make us laugh. Growing up, she was always a watchdog but she would bark from the safety of the bedroom. We recently had a baby, who is now 2 months, and she has become the most amazing watchdog. She immediately runs to the door and has a scary bark to people who do not know what a mush she really is. She alerts us when the baby is crying and she loves to try to "kiss" the baby. The other day, she heard a baby cry on t.v. and ran over to it! We have noticed that she does miss the attention that she had everyday but she does not mind when it comes to watching over the baby. She has become a surrogate mom! We can't wait for the day when our daughter Kate can play with Holly. She point! s like crazy and the other day, she stopped playing in the yard to point at a hawk! She has never gone hunting but she loves to sniff out anything including her favorite ball. She follows us from room to room and always sleeps by our side. We always talk about how amazing your stables are and how fantastic you were at picking the perfect dog for us. The other night we watched the dog show (of course Holly did too!) and we can see that she is show quality. We have never seen a Vizsla more beautiful than our Holly! Thanks again so much and here are some pics!....Liane C. (Holbrook, NY)

    We brought home one of your Viszla puppies in January, and I thought you would like to see how our little girl Zoe is growing up. Besides being beautiful, she has a wonderful personality. Everyone who meets her thinks she is the best puppy in the world! We started socializing Zoe right away with lots of people and other dogs, so she is very friendly. Her best friend is a Borzoi named Sadie, who is twice Zoeís size! They love to run together off-leash on a trail near our house. Zoe also loves to get in the car and go places with us. Sometimes my husband takes her to the office where she entertains everyone. Zoe was housebroken in just a few days and never peed in the house once. In fact after only about 8 weeks we found we didnít have to crate her when we left her in the house. She is very smart!

    South Side Farm- I know that you have seen most of the attached pictures, but I wanted to thank you again for taking such good care of all of your animals and giving our girls such a wonderful start!  I truly couldn't ask for a better pup, and her personality matches ours so well, that you would swear she was our child if she didn't walk on all fours!!....Jason and Shea W. & Jeff and Michele H.

    Here are a pictures of our pup from Hungary - Lela. 6 months old in the pics. As I took her out early on to socialize and meet people everyone was always impressed at home calm she was. She has her puppy moments and zoomies of course but really has a fabulous demeanor. Recently I've taught her to play ball. By that I mean - catches the ball on the bounce of 1 - 2 or 3 bounces when I give a hand signal and verbal command. Its a riot. She loves swimming and enjoys our lake home. Lela is doing very well. Graduated from first in her puppgarten class. Here are some pics....they feature the summer clothing line for doggies vacationing on the lake in the Adirondacks....(Princeton, NJ)

    We lost our dog in January. Our house was so empty without the joy a brings to a home. We were looking at getting a Vizsla or Weimaraner. After talking to South Side Farm, he made us feel better all the way around. He talked with us in length, and through his advice decided a Vizsla would be the dog for us. He was definitely right. In June we went and picked up our little girl, the only female from the litter  of Honey and Hugo. She is a beauty as you can see from her picture. She was basically potty trained as soon as she came home. We have never had to puppy proof the house, She just knows what she can play with, and what she cannot. After six months, she does not use her crate; I truly believe she could have been out of it sooner. I can go to work, and not worry about anything being destroyed. Everybody loves her. We have taken her with us to as many places as we can. People always want to pet and play with her. She loves people, and people love her. She is going to obedience school with the hopes of her moving onto agility. She passed puppy classes, and is now in beginner obedience. She has to pass that and the novice class before she can move onto agility. In the puppy classes her teacher feels she is a natural. They are encouraging us to her involved with agility, She loved doing it in the puppy classes. Kaycee is truly the most loving and affectionate dog. She is a pleasure to have in our home. She brings such joy and happiness, She is also so funny. She has a great personality. We would recommend South Side Farm Dogs to anyone looking for an outstanding puppy. We were very impressed with how clean and the overall condition of your facility. We were delighted to meet Kaycee's mom, Honey and interact with her. You truly have done an outstanding job in every way to make adding a puppy to our home a pleasure. Thank you for such a sweet loving pet....Sue & Walt P. (North Tonawanda, NY)

    I wanted to write and tell you how happy I am to have my Vizsla, he is all I dreamed of and better.  He has been really easy to train and has a wonderful personality.  He has come with me several times to may job ( I am a social worker/ therapist in a special education program).  He has already helped me working with my kids and participated in a fundraiser for the homeless. When he is a year and can be certified, I hope to be able to bring him to work on a consistent basis....Wendy. (Alexandria, VA)

We hope all of you at South Side Farm are enjoying the holiday season! We just wanted to send a quick note that Maddux has earned his first obedience title at the age of two. On Dec 1st he completed his Rally Novice title in three shows, with scores of 87 in the first two and 81 in the last show. He is extremely smart and very loving so I know he will do well when he moves to advanced.  We plan on showing Racer this spring and we hope to have him titled before he turns two.  Again we cannot tell you how much we love our boys and we are thankful to have had the opportunity to work with the wonderful staff at South Side Farm. Now if I could only convince my husband that we need a third! Have a Happy Holiday!...Denese Koza

    Here are some pics of my baby Kahlua this past summer. They're her 'baby' pictures as she has grown since then. When I download her more recent photos to my laptop, I will email them to you. But honestly, Kahlua is the perfect Vizsla, her eyes, her body, her face, her color. We love her tremendously! Enjoy. Natalie (Washingtonville, NY)

    I hope you liked the pictures my wife sent. Gol is doing great. All his vaccinations are up to date , he has been nurtured and a microchipped, he was up and running in no time after the procedure. He has so much energy that you could not believe, our kids love him. He is eating twice a day and he is housebroken. He likes to chew on things a lot so we have given him some toys suitable for his age and gums. We even taught him how to enter and exit the pool to avoid accidents. We look after him very much, he is the joy of our kids and ourselves. We feel very lucky for having him....Rodrigo (Weston, FL)

    I am really enjoying my new life as queen of the hill! Don't I look comfy? I am learning to sit, and take treats gently, and I potty outside a lot! If my mom and dad remember my routine. There is so much room to run around and I have lots of toys to play with. Thanks for telling my mom about he bacon bit treats. I will do just about anything to get a bit of them!!! My favorite thing of all is this chair that I like to cuddle in, though. My mom and especially my dad snuggles me in it and I fall asleep. I met my new grandma and she like to play with me, too.
I met a doggie friend that is a Cocker spaniel, an 8 month old dog, and I had fun playing with her, until she jumped onto her mom's lap. I heard the big people say she was getting what she used to dish out to her brothers ....... what does that mean? Are my siblings in new homes, too? I hope so because I want them to be loved as much as I am....Picha, the Vizsla, W. (Norwich, NY)

    Hope you are doing well.  Wanted to give you an update on my 2 Vizslas that I bought from South Side Farm Dogs.  The first one, Killian we picked up in June of 2006.  We instantly fell in love with his spirit. He is very loving and energetic and has a very funny sense of humor.   He is a little smaller than normal Vizslas but is so regal and striking that everyone comments on how beautiful he is.  He has a very gentle personality and is always eager to please.  We instantly knew that we wanted a second Vizsla and picked up Murphy in January of 2007.  At first Killian wasn't sure what to make of the new puppy, but it didn't take long for them to become buddies. Murphy has been a very different puppy from Killian, he is pretty lazy and loves to cuddle, he is extremely content just laying next to you and playing with his brother.  They compliment eachother very well.  Killian is the show off one who wants to please you and make you laugh, and Murphy is the one who wants to snuggle and isn't as energetic.  Also, Murphy has outgrown his brother and he is only 6 months old!  We couldn't be happier with the two dogs and the breed.  Thank you for all of your help with this process, we are first time dog owners and are hooked for life.  I have attached a picture that we took a few months after we got Murphy, I am sure you will enjoy!...Rainette and Dave (Providence, RI)

One Year Later....

Hi South Side Farm,
I hope you had a wonderful New Year.  Wanted to give you and update on our Vizslas Killian and Murphy and send you some updated pictures if you want to add them to our testimonial. I told you I would keep you posted and Murphy is a little over a year old and weighs 67lbs! His big brother Killian is only 46lbs! Killian and Murphy are very attached and hate to be away from one another. They have very different personalities but compliment each other well. I have to say, I do not regret getting another Vizsla.  Having two dogs is truly better than having one.  The companionship they get from one another is so worth it....Rainette and Dave (Providence, RI)

Just wanted to send you a few photos of the most beautiful Vizsla in Boston.  It was one year ago this past weekend that you handed her over to me.  I had no idea then how this dog would change my life. All my best to you, Lisa, and your staff....Elaina (Boston, MA)

My husband, Steve, put down a deposit on a Vizsla puppy before Christmas.  I was wondering when your next litter is expected, and if there are puppies still available. We absolutely ADORE our Vizsla girl Zoe, who is now 3 years old.  You can see from these pictures what a gorgeous, athletic girl she is.  Sheís full of life and brings so us much joy -- we canít wait to share our home with another Vizsla!...Kathy B.

This e-mail is long overdue. I wanted to let you know that we are thrilled with Charlie (our new vizsla puppy). Here are some highlights of his first week with us:

- he had his first vet check up, and is perfectly healthy. He's gaining weight and has a great appetite.
- he's close to 100% house trained. He goes immediately when we take him outside, and hasn't had an 'accident' since his 3nd night here.
- he and our 7yr old Vizsla get along great - they run around together outside, play with toys together inside, and even occasionally 'snuggle' together in the older dog's bed.
- Charlie is already learning some basic training. He's starting to understand sit and come.

The most remarkable thing Charlie has done was relocate his bed. We're crate training him, and his crate is located in our laundry room next to a heater. When we are around, he has free run of this room and the adjacent kitchen, which is where our older Vizsla has her bed. On his own, Charlie pulled the bed out of his crate and dragged it into the kitchen next to our older dog's bed - very smart! (you can see this in the pictures attached)

All in all, Charlie is doing great. We'll keep you posted. We hope you have a happy and healthy holiday! All the Best....Neal and Hillery (Waltham, MA)

We purchased our Vizsla Oliver from you in January 2007. He just turned three this past week so we wanted to update you on how he is doing; we have been meaning to do this for a long time now. We couldn't be happier with our decision to buy from you. Oliver has the sweetest personality and charms everyone he meets. He makes us laugh every day with his antics. He is eager to please, very playful, and adaptable to whatever we are doing. He loves burning his boundless energy off leash at our local park, protecting his stuffed toys,begging for treats and most of all snuggling with us on the couch. He is truly a member of our family! We would love to get another Vizsla from you, but are not sure if you ship your dogs. We moved to Colorado last year and are unable to make the trip to NY to pick up a pup. We hope this note finds you well. Enjoy a few pictures of Oliver! Thanks....Becky and Jevon (Lakewood, Colorado)

My name is Patrick, we adopted a beautiful vizsla pup from the March 18th, 2009 litter at South Side Farm. As you can see from the attached pictures, one taken the first few weeks we brought him home and the other taken just last week, he has grown into a very handsome 5 month old. 'Leo' is a joy to have and a wonderful addition to the household. He has been a healthy and happy pup and coulnd't ask for a better dog. Hope you like the pictures....Patrick & Courtney (Camillus, NY)

"....And we'd just settled down for a long winter's nap, When what to our wondering eyes should appear but two lovely brown dogs with antlers for ears....."
We brought our Lily(born 7/1 to Isabella) home on Labor Day and she is delightful. With this first big snowfall in the Boston area, we have been hiking in the woods and she loves it. She tries to keep up with our other Vizsla, Danny, who is 3 years old and leaps through the snow like a gazelle.
She was very easy to house train, learns commands quickly and is so very loving and affectionate to everyone.
It is clear that your careful breeding and early care of your dogs insures that your puppies are healthy, sweet-tempered, and of course, absolutely beautiful. We attach some recent photos of our "beauties."
We wish you and all your terrific staff the merriest of Christmas and the "Peace of Christ."
In love with our Vizslas,....the Glynns (Milton, MA)

    We were looking for a Vizsla puppy for some time because Tibor is Hungarian and he wanted a really great original Hungarian Vizsla dog same he had at home in Hungary. Then we discovered the South Side Farm on the internet. We traveled 4,5 hours just to look around and we were absolutely amazed by the beauty of the stables, animals and nature. South Side Farm show us one puppy girl and we were convinced at once of the quality and beauty of the puppies we could get. After for us never-ending waiting just before the Christmas we have received a call from South Side Farm and we`ve got a tiny precious 3 months old puppy of Hungarian Vizsla who become the most fun, beautiful and wildest ;-) member of our family. He is so pretty, loving and smart we just have to look at him proudly all the time... Thank you so much!!! With kindest regards....Eliska & Tibor (Middletown, NJ)

It has been two weeks since I picked up the new puppy and I wanted to update you on how she is doing..... ďLenaĒ has quickly become a family favorite. She is sweet and sociable and our 3 year old lab play fabulously together, although of course they are well supervised! I am also impressed at what a quick learner she is and housebreaking is going very well too. I am so glad that we have added this new family member!....Mary (Reading, MA)

We have had Gemma for just 5 weeks and we cannot picture our lives without her!! She is a beautiful dog and you cannot imagine how often we are stopped on the street by people wanting to pet her and to ask what kind of breed (Vizsla). She is a smart dog and catches on very quickly although at 13 1/2 weeks she certainly has a mind of her own. We have a close family but Gemma has brought our family even closer together because of the love we all share for her. We are truly fortunate to have found South Side Farm and equally fortunate to have such a beautiful dog such as Gemma. She has brought so much joy to our lives already....Andy & Maria (Londonderry, NH)

Our Vizsla, Gemma, is two years old already!! What a great addition she has been to our family! Not a day goes by without someone complimenting us on what a beautiful dog we have. We couldn't agree more !!....Andy and Maria (Londonderry, NH)

Not a day goes by that we don't receive a compliment about Gemma. She is
a wonderful dog who loves the outdoors. This picture is Gemma running through her
favorite orchard in town. She loves the many orchard smells of fruit and other animals and
most of all she loves her freedom to run and chase those smells. We cannot imagine our lives
without Gemma a major part of it !!....Andy and Maria (Londonderry, NH)
