Vizsla History:

On the steppes of Hungary, exactly where game was plentiful, this superb hunting dog flourished for centuries. Believed to happen to be brought by the Magyar men and women when they conquered the land, this dog is an excellent pointer, retriever and tracker. Vizsla was in particular suited to tracking partridges and rabbits in the tall grass steppes. The numbers of Vizsla dropped substantially between the two world wars that ravaged its homeland. Inside the Russian occupation that followed, families fleeing to western European countries brought the dogs with them and extended the breed’s popularity. Vizslas were admitted for the American Kennel Club in 1960.
