Vizsla Rescue Information: The Vizsla is an elegantly proportioned hunting dog. Vizslas are affectionate family companions and are wonderful with active children. Vizsla usually get along well with other dogs and can be socialized to get along with cats, but have an instinct to hunt smaller animals such as gerbils or rabbits. Vizslas may become nervous if not thoroughly socialized and given plenty of exercise and attention. Vizslas need a good sized yard.

The Vizsla was a symbol of the Hungarian aristocracy. Hungarians worried that Russian invaders would kill off all the Vizsla during World War II.
