vizsla

 First time to hear of this breed.  Similar to a weimaraner.  Yes, I had to look up the spelling of both of these breeds.  This is an 8 x 10" and is a Christmas surprise for someone.sold

  2. I am a dog afficianado and I love this Hungarian breed. They are one of the few NAVHDA recognized breeds and they seem to have such a sweet temperament. Maybe some day I will have one of my own. This one is beautiful, Carol! The Weimaraners are also beautiful with a stunning coat. Now that is a breed I find a bit neurotic because they suffer greatly from separation anxiety and can do some serious damage when left alone. I've owned several and every one of them was this way with the separation anxiety. The Weims are also a NAVHDA recognized breed. My favorite hunting dog, by far, is the Spinone Italiano. So very sweet and smart, such big babies. I lost my Gio a few years back and I don't think I will ever get over it. Spinones are also recognized by NAVHDA. Ah well...sorry for the dog litany.
