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 Bronze Breeder of Merit

  • AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T.

  • Member Vizsla Club of America

  • Board of Directors of Vizsla Club of the Carolinas

  • Past President/Board of Directors

  • Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association

  • 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 2nd & 3rd Generation Naturally Reared for optimal good health and longevity.

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


Most importantly, we put the time and effort in to 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.
