Website: MARKETPLACE.AKC.ORG/TEXAS-HILL-COUNTRY-VIZSLA-BARR Kennel Name: Texas Hill Country Vizsla Breeder's Location: Johnson City TX 78636///Austin, TX 78730 Breeding for: 4 years. Texas Hill Country Vizsla --Located just outside of Johnson City Texas on an 20 acre horse ranch that is dedicated to the breeding and training of Vizsla. In addition the ranch supports a horse breeding training and boarding business along with a dog training and kenneling facility.* **************************** I can not say enough good things about this breed that this breed has the natural pointer well suited for hunting in pointing, flushing and retrieving; temperament of a lab; shedding is almost non existent and one of the top 5 healthiest breeds (not well know and back yard breeders haven't enter the market-yet- This will change over the next 5 years because the popularity of the breed is growing. There are two down sides Vizlsa require engagement they are know to be one of the most loyal breeds and lack of engagement tends to adversely effect the relationship with the owner. Even though this is a hunting dog it does not have 2nd undercoat found in labs; retrievers; etc and can not remain in the cold for long .duration. ******************************** The Breed originated in Hungary to work as a pointer and retriever, the Vizsla dog breed has an aristocratic bearing. The first written reference to Vizsla dog breed has been recorded in the Illustrated Vienna Chronicle prepared on order of King Lajos the Great (Louis the Great King of Hungary, Croatia, and Poland) by the Carmelite Friars in 1357. Companion dogs of the early warlords and barons, Vizsla blood was preserved pure for centuries by the land-owning aristocracy who guarded them jealously and continued to develop the hunting ability of these "yellow-pointers". Records of letters and writings show the high esteem in which the Vizsla was held. The Vizsla survived the Turkish occupation (1526–1696), the Hungarian Revolution (1848–49), World War I, World War II and the Soviet Period. However, Vizslas faced and survived several near-extinctions in their history, including being overrun by English Pointers and German Shorthair Pointers in the 1800s and again to near-extinction after World War II. During the 1950s a careful search of Hungary and a poll of Hungarian sportsmen revealed only about a dozen Vizslas of the true type still alive in the country. From that minimum stock, the breed rose to prominence once again. *********** The Vizsla was bred to work in field, forest and water. Agile and energetic, this is a versatile dog of power, drive and endurance in the field yet a tractable and affectionate companion in the home. The requisite instincts and abilities to maintain a "dual dog" are always to be fostered and appreciated, never deprecated. This breed is often described as the "Velcro Vizsla." Most dogs are affectionate, but this medium-size hunting dog is especially attached to his people. All he really wants, though, is to be loved. He's a super companion for an active family who can provide him with the exercise and attention he craves. ****Next Litter (Angel) Planned Early September Birth with pic-up Early Nov 2017*** The Litter to follow (Luna or Stella) Planned for January with pic up in March 2018**** to be added to the contact list you must contact me through the AKC WEB portal***** Kennel Name: Texas Hill Country Vizsla
