General Appearance
That of a medium-sized short-coated hunting dog of distinguished appearance and bearing. Robust but rather lightly built; the coat is an attractive solid golden rust. This is a dog of power and drive in the field yet a tractable and affectionate companion in the home.

Vizslas are small enough to be good dogs for a city apartment, but remember like other sporting dogs they require daily exercise. Vizsla's are sensitive dogs, devoted to those who treat them kindly and give them attention. The Vizsla is not very discriminating to who he shows affection, he loves everyone.

A natural hunter endowed with a good nose and above-average ability to take training. Lively, gentle-mannered, demonstrably affectionate and sensitive though fearless with a well developed protective instinct.

Did You Know
The Vizsla is also called a Hungarian Pointer. At the end of World War I, the Vizsla was all but extinct. The importation of the breed into the United States began in the 1950s. The breed was admitted into the American Kennel Club in 1960.
