The Wirehaired Vizsla was created by cross-breeding the shorthaired Vizsla and the German Wirehaired Pointer during the 1930’s. It has the same breed characteristics as shorthaired Vizslas. These efficient, versatile dogs, which are able to point and retrieve, are happy hunters, working to the gun, even in water.

A Vizsla’s typical gait is an elegant, easy trot, driven by the back legs while the front legs reach forward. On the plain, Vizslas gallop at an even pace, covering a great deal of ground.
