VIZLA MAGYAR (Hungarian Braque) Dogs
It is not by chance fact that vizla means "smart and full of zeal" in Hungarian; this Braque is a tracking champion. Its origins come from the X century and even when the breed was about to get exterminated during World War II, it has been extending around the world from that moment on. Thanks to its colorful coat, this breed is very frequent in canine expositions and canine beauty contests; but also as a pet.
Its most flashy feature is its coat,
of a dazzling and luxurious copper color. Adventurous hunter, easy to train, great swimmer and retriever. This breed is easy to please, but it doesn't like being left aside. It is happier in the countryside than in the city. Sociable with humans and other dogs, caring and protector of its family.
Short hair of an easy maintenance, dark copper in color with reddish reflections. Spots and white high shoes are considered defects. Unmistakable brown eyes, full of sensibility, normally a point darker than the coat. Pretty long and heavy ears. Tail placed low that is horizontally. Well shaped cat feet. Arched, short and muscular body with a wide chest.
