Hungarian Wire Haired Vizsla

Breed History / Description


The Hungarian Wire Haired Vizsla is based on the Vizsla with an input of German Wirehaired Pointer blood, the first cross taking place in 1904 and the resulting two puppies becoming the foundation stock. 

They are slightly bigger and stronger in bone then the Vizsla and the protective wire coat makes them very suitable for hunting in cold conditions or rough cover.

General Appearance

Medium sized, wire coated, distinguished appearance, with a more robust build and a stronger bone stucture than the shorthaired Vizsla. 


Loyal, intelligent, obedient, sensitive, very affectionate and with patience, easily trained. Bred for hunting fur and feather, pointing and retrieving from land and water
