The vizsla is a dog breed originating in Hungary. The Hungarian or Magyar Vizsla are sporting dogs and loyal companions, in addition to being the smallest of the all-round pointer-retriever breeds.
Never seen one of that Cheasake Bay Retriever type color before, only the silver/gray ones, and because of that I thought they only came in that one distinct color.
So, Viszlas are a pointer-retriever breed, and therefore it's easy to understand why it would like to go do some pheasant hunting. But tell me halloween: is your dog more of a pointer or a retriever when you go hunting?
As young as 4 months he pointed the retrieving was a progression, he will be 4 years old next month and has mastered both. At 11/2 years old he had every thing down, the breed is a smart breed and eager to please, really not to much work involved at all just repetitive on commands is about all. He loves to swim, hunt and just play, the breed in general are very loving(sometimes over loving) and protective of their family members. If someone is looking for an agressive type of dog they are not, but if one was looking for a dog to take to the field for several hours and then back to the family for some R&R their great. Another thing that I love about Pup is he is not a chewer, the lab I had before him nearly chewed me out of house and home( love labs but hate the chewing). I hunt him in cold weather but not bitter, they have no undercoat, although there is a breed of Viszla that has an undercoat but I'm not sure they have not been breed with a dog to develop their undercoat but to me if I duck hunted it wouldn't matter as long as he maintained the charactristics of the Viszla as a whole. I take him to trials but have never seen the colors you mentioned, can you send some pictures I would like to show them to a friend of mine he is one if not the best breeders of Viszlas in the U.S. for the last 40-to-50 years.
