Appearance
His coat is short, smooth, dense and close-lying with a glossy sheen. Sometimes called the "Yellow Pointer", his colouring is a golden-rust. He conveys the impression of an alert, muscular, well-balanced dog with a distinctive and aristocratic appearance.
 

Temperament
In North America, the Vizsla is used primarily as an upland bird dog, renowned for his excellent scenting and retrieving abilities. He is a eager and happy hunter in the field and a strong swimmer that retrieves well from water.

The Vizsla is a quick learner and an intelligent dog, so training shouldn't prove too much of a challenge. He is eager to please and responsive, faring well in obedience training. He can be easily distracted and independent, so a firm yet very positive method is important when training. In order to promote a stable and confident temperament early socialization is advisable. The Vizsla will generally bark to raise an alarm, and can make effective watchdogs. Their size can also act as a deterrent for potential intruders. These dogs get along fine with strangers and other animals, as well as with children. The Vizsla is an ideal pet for an active owner with the time to dedicate to a loving pet.

 
History
The Vizsla, also known as the Hungarian Pointer, was perfectly suited to perform the duties of a pointer and retriever in the open plains of Hungary. The breed is now considered the national dog of Hungary. The breed was imported into the North America during the 1950s and gained recognition by the American Kennel Club in 1960. The Canadian Kennel Club officially recognized the breed into the Sporting Group shortly thereafter.
 
Health
If you are considering a Vizsla puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases. For the Vizsla, health clearances should include OFA, OVC or PennHIP certified clear of Hip Dysplasia; CERF certification for eyes diseases; as well as testing and clearances for Thyroid disorders, and Congenital Heart Disease.
