Originating in Hungary as a hunting dog, the Vizsla belongs to the Pointer family. Despite their strong instincts to track prey and protect their family, the Vizsla makes a wonderful family pet. They are known for their loyalty and deep attachment to their family, earning them the label “Velcro dog”. However, while they display strong affection for their human family, they are best suited to homes which do not have cats or other small animals.
