About Firelight Vizslas

My Story


I am a retired career Fire Officer and Paramedic, with the City of Miami Fire Department. I got my first Vizsla, Ellie, when I was a member of our USAR Team in the late 1980's.

Fast forward to 2009, when I got my 3rd Vizsla, Ember, the Foundation of Firelight Vizslas. My intention was to just to have a 'trail partner' now that I was retired, but she has taken me on an amazing Journey in the Sport of dogs!

Ember is now:

AKC Bronze Grand Champion

International Champion RBIS

CH Vizcaya's Firelight Phantasy

Registry of Merit, Therapy Dog and Canine Good Citizen

Organizations I belong to:

  • AKC Silver Breeder of Merit

  • AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T.

  • Vizsla Club of America

  • Vizsla Club of the Carolinas

  • Vizsla Club of Metro Atlanta

  • Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association

  • (Past President/Board of Directors)

  • Delta Society Pet Partner Team

  Firelight Vizslas is in the Asheville area of NC

  Firelight Vizsla puppies are weaned directly to RAW food and are 4th, and now 5th Generation Naturally Reared, for optimal good health and longevity. We offer life long mentoring and support to our buyers.


Read more about starting your Natural Rearing Journey in the FAQ  section.


Our puppies are raised from birth to departure inside our Home, not in a kennel. Our adult dogs also live in our home as part of our family, never in a kennel.


Our vibrantly healthy puppies are able to have visitors and spend lots of time outdoors as we do not need to wait for vaccines to "take". Look through all my photo galleries to see where and how my puppies are raised!


Most importantly, as I am retired, I can put the time and effort in to doing extensive early training and socialization with my litters. I follow Jane Killion's Puppy Culture Program: The Powerful First 12 Weeks that can shape your puppy's future! Firelight Vizsla puppies are ready for whatever adventures their new lives hold for them!



It is not a population issue, it is an owner-retention issue.
