The Vizsla is easily recognizable by its elegant golden rust coat. They can stand between 21 and 24 inches at the shoulder and are the companion image of a lean and lightfoot hunter. Long silky ears frame a sensitive and affectionate facial expression at home and intense at work. As a hunter meant to work closely with humans, the Vizslas form a close bond with their owners and hate to be alone.
Athletes with multiple talents, Vizslas excels in various sports and activities. They are enthusiastic and graceful trotters of great endurance, making them ideal jogging or cycling companions. A breed expert tells us, “If you do not have time to encourage the brain to fully utilize its brain, you are wasting a good dog.”
