Vizsla File

The Hungarian Shorthaired Pointer, better known as Vizsla, is a dog that adds several qualities of the Pointer and the German Shorthaired Pointer: it is fast, has a very sensitive sense of smell, allowing it to follow tracks without problems. He is quick to find prey and is able to hunt perfectly.


There are several theories about the origins of Vizsla, being more accepted the one that considers the dog Sabueso da Panonia as its main ancestor. In the development of this breed, a yellow-haired hunting dog (which appeared in Hungary in 1526) and Sloughi, an Arabian harlequin, were crossed. At the end of the 19th century, the Vizsla, like all other Bracos dogs on the continent, received the blood of the Pointer. The breed was recognized by the AKC in 1960.


Vizsla dogs are intelligent, faithful, caring and balanced. They are energetic and love to run and play with their owners. They get on well with children, as long as they treat you with respect. They are docile, obedient and easy to train dogs.

It is a robust and short-backed dog. It has a muscular head and a square snout that gradually narrows. His ears are thin, silky, wide and his eyes are oval and brown.

Specific care
Although the Vizsla is an athletic looking dog, it is recommended to keep him indoors with his family, since he is a very sensitive dog and does not like being separated from his family. It is also recommended to provide you with a garden and regular exercise. When you get bored, it can become a little destructive.

Vizsla is not prone to specific diseases, the problems that affect it are common to many races: allergies, cryptorchidism, monorchidism and other disorders.
