Vizsla Dogs

Close Cousin to the Weimaraner

Vizsla dogs share a number of characteristics with Weimaraners. Vizslas are hunting dogs, energetic, athletic, protective of their families, gentle with children, and they can be quite headstrong.

While the Vizsla and the Weimaraner have different colorings, they are often confused with each other.  In fact, some people think the breed is named Vizsla Weimaraner!

Weinheimers or Weimaraners originated in Germany, and the Vizsla orginated in Hungary.

Just like Weimaraners, Vizsala are often used for hunting small game and birds.  They are active dogs with lots of energy—and you should only consider getting one if you are an active, energetic person yourself…
