A co-worker of mine is getting rid of his dog. His wife never wanted a dog and it seems he lost the battle. It is a pure bred Visla. About 1.5 years old. I was really holding out for a Brittney Spaniel, but this one is FREE to a good home. It may be a few years before I can afford a Brittney from a good line. I don't know very much about Vislas so I'm wondering if this is a good breed for upland birds.
