Vizsla Characteristics

The Hungarian Doppelganger of the Weimaraner, the Vizsla is a medium-sized hunting breed with a noble heritage. These dogs are very affectionate and enjoy being family companions. They thrive with a large yard or space to run around in and play. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Large
  • Trainability Responsive

Standing at a manageable 21-24 inches at the shoulder and weighing around 45-65 pounds, the Vizsla is a medium-large hunting dog. These dogs have a single coat that can either be smooth or wirehaired and are low to moderate shedders. Commonly seen with grey or black coats, weekly brushing is recommended in order to keep stray hair around the house to a minimum. Vizslas are spry and healthy but, like any pet, should be taken for regular vet checkups to ensure optimal health.

The Vizsla has a long heritage as an effective hunting partner. The breed was created to be both a retriever and pointer, so it has a tendency to stay close by its human in the field and at home. This is one of the most fundamental – and adored – characteristics of the Vizsla. If you love having a little friendly shadow with you everywhere you go, this is the pup for you!

While the breed is not known to be as energetic as a Brittany or Border Collie, they do require adequate exercise and have a strong desire for purpose and connection. An hour of vigorous daily exercise is recommended to keep your Vizsla happy and content. Vizslas excel at canine performance sports and are the only breed recognized as a "Quintuple Champion", winning the top spot in five officially recognized AKC sports.

How dog-friendly is Arkansas?

Studies are divided over just how dog-friendly Arkansas is. The state has a long going for it, and a few areas for definite improvement. Let’s explore the two primary studies: one from Pawsafe and one from Safewise.


Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, conducted a study to rank each state according to its pet-friendliness. They evaluated states by several important indicators, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and access to services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


In their study, Pawsafe ranks Arkansas as the #1 most pet-friendly state! That’s right, number one! The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


However, Safewise, a site that reviews safety across the country, came to a very different conclusion. In their study, Arkansas is ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Not terrible, but certainly not number one.


While the two studies produced contrasting results, assuming Arkansas falls somewhere in the middle of the two still puts the state towards the top of the list. So we consider Arkansas to be pet-friendly overall.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Arkansas

BringFido lists Arkansas as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also recommends Lake Wilson Park and the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests as fun dog-friendly activities.


Fifty-two percent of Arkansas residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%! 


What kind of dogs do Arkansans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Arkansas are Labradors, Beagles, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Boxers, and French Bulldogs. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arkansas

Arkansas saved 38,197 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 6718 animals were killed over this same period. 


Forty-three out of 93 of the animal shelters within Arkansas are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is rather low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 78%. However, this is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see improvement in years to come.
