History of the Vizsla

This clipping was in some articles that Meghan Tallman was kind enough to share with me. Thank you, Meghan, for sharing some of the history of the vizsla with us.: "The Observers Book of Dogs" by Clifford L. B. Hubbard Frederick Warne & Co., Ltd., London and New York (page 153 Re: Vizsla, Hungarian Pointer, Yellow Pointer): "One of the five national breeds of dogs in Hungary. The Vizsla is the sole sporting dog, a breed which combines the duties of POINTER, SETTER, AND RETRIEVER. He is admirably suited to the game and conditions of the puszta, being descended from the Transylvanian and Weimar pointers, well equipped for those particular terrains. Today the race is protected by the interest on the Hungarian Kennel Club through their specialists stud book (Magyar Eb Torzskonyv) and records of exported specimens are meticulously maintained. He is particularly in demand in the Debrecen district of Eastern Hungary, where most feathered game seek sanctuary.Height, 25 inches, weight, 70 to 75 pounds, color, yellow only, rather like the sedge shade of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Coat short, close and smooth. Tail docked to about two-fifths."

"One of Charles Hunt's puppies Borka owned by Leah Clayton's family of Chicago, IL in 1957. The dam was Asta Z Povasia."
