The Hungarian Vizsla is a medium sized, elegant gun dog of noble appearance with a distinctive short russet gold coat. They were originally bred as a multi-purpose gundog to hunt, point and retrieve fur or feather from land or water.
Vizslas come in various shades of Russet Gold and Dark Sandy Gold. The ear leathers may be a little dark, otherwise uniform in colour. He has an intelligent and lively expression. The brown eyes harmonise with the coat colour, as dark as possible preferred. His rather light, dry, lean structure embodies the harmony of beauty and strength.
