Vizsla Puppies for Sale in Nevada, NV
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.
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.
