Adoptions & Rescues

Due to the rarity of this breed in the United States, we do not expect to have many dogs available for rescue.  However, should the need arise, please fill out an Adoption Application and submit it as requested below.  All dogs adopted from the rescue will either be spayed/neutered prior to placement, or, if the animal is too young, will be adopted with a spay/neuter contract.

CSVCA Adoptable Dogs


Moose 3

Moose is a 4.5 years old neutered male with a clean health bill.  He is a lazy dog that enjoys occasional hikes.  He is a good running companion. Moose is a well-traveled dog, used to road-trips, and open to new environments.  He has an attitude and he is a bit insecure but he is very affectionate.

He has completed Nosework I and II foundation classes and seems to enjoy tracking and having his nose on the ground all the time.  He is not a sports-dog. He is crate-trained, housebroken, and is extremely food motivated.

Moose will benefit from an experienced owner who has dog-handling knowledge. His biggest issue is resource guarding, which we have learned to manage with hand feeding and drills.  The potential owner should have an understanding of these issues and willingness to continue working on “Nothing in Life in Free” drills.

Moose will need a home with a fenced backyard and as an only dog; he is very selective of the dogs with whom he interacts.  Moose will also do best in a home without children or cats.  We would prefer to place him in a home within a half-day drive from the Washington DC Metropolitan Area in order to introduce the potential owner into his “pack” to facilitate the transition into his new home.

Successful Rescues


Vinko in Italy

We have had some successful rescues in the recent years.  One such rescue in 2018 was Vinko, a Czechoslovakian Vlcak, (“CsV”), from Italy who came to the United States to meet his new family.  The family had recently lost their first rescued CsV, Loki, and missed him terribly.  Vinko became available at a time when his new family-to-be was ready to welcome their next rescue.  Although Sitka, their other CsV had never accepted Loki, Vinko’s new family was ready to welcome him no matter what.

Vinko settled in very quickly, but hadn’t met Sitka yet. One day, not long after Vinko had settled in, the family came home to find Vinko and Sitka together!  Seems Vinko decided it was time to meet his sister and figured out how to open the door separating them.  They became immediate friends and are enjoying life together with their incredible, loving family!
