Hungarian Vizsla Breed Overview
The Hungarian Vizsla, or widely known as Vizsla, is a medium-sized dog that originally was bred in Hungary for hunting purposes. Sometimes they can be confused with Weimaraner because of similar appearance.
The Vizsla contains a strong body that is covered in short coat that can come with rust color and nails, eyes and nose blend in the fur when it comes to color. Of course, they shed a little, but if compared with other breeds they don’t need lots of maintenance, just occasional bathing and brushing when it is necessary.
They have great hunter instincts and tons of energy which meant that you have to take them to a long walk or jogging every single day. They need large areas at home to play and run. It is not recommended for people that live in apartments to get Vizsla.
