Vizsla

History of the Vizsla

The Vizsla breed of dogs are known as Hungarian Pointers. In fact, the word “Vizsla” is Hungarian for “alert and responsive.”

Considered as prized possessions of Hungarian aristocracy, especially King Louis the Great, Vizslas are classified today as general utility gundogs. They locate, point, and retrieve game, all with moderate to excellent efficiency.

Vizsla Appearance

Sleek and shorthaired, golden rust to cinnamon in color, they have a longer tail dock than most pointers. The Vizslas distinction is shared with that of the German Shorthaired Pointers, German Wirehaired Pointers, Brittanies, Wired Pointing Griffon’s, and Weimaraners.

Vizsla Size at Maturity

This medium-sized hunter stands 22 to 24 inches at the shoulders and weighs in at 50 to 60 lbs.

On November 25, 1960 the breed was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC). Visit the AKC’s official website for additional information regarding the Vizsla breed.
