The Hungarian Vizsla is a lovable and loyal pet. This breed was trained as a sports and hunting dog but is also as a companion dog which is rare in the history of breeding. The dogs are high energy and high maintenance, but a Vizsla owner would never complain. The Vizsla makes a great pet for anyone wishing to have a devoted companion who will become your “shadow” and protect you while providing you with fun and amusing antics. Once a Vizsla owner, always a Vizsla owner.
