Dog breed spotlight: Viszla
If you want a natural hunter that learns easily and has a great nose, the Viszla might be the dog for you. They are energetic and can be fearless when the occasion calls for it, but in normal situations they're gentle and affectionate to the point where many consider them velcro dogs. They like to be right by their human's side at all times.
The ancestors of the Vizsla are assumed to have been hunters accompanying Magyars to central Europe over a thousand years ago. The breed is depicted in etchings that date back to the 10th century, and manuscripts from the 14th century.
A Vizsla thrives on attention, exercise, and interaction. They are often vocal. They sing along with the radio, and cry when they feel neglected.
