Kennel Club Canine Genetics Centre – URGENT APPEAL
As some of you may be aware the Kennel Club has withdrawn funding from the
Canine Genetics Centre to concentrate funding on BOAS (Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome) and IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease). This leaves the centre in a very vulnerable position and a shortfall of £345,000 per annum.
It is important that puppy purchasers are aware of the responsibilities of breeders and the standards of compliance being strived for, in order to safeguard the Vizsla. ensuring their health, quality and welfare.
Approved and registered by the Kennel Club on 29th November 1972, the Hungarian Vizsla Society exists to try and protect and care for our wonderful breed in this country. We welcome input from members, whether it is comments and general feedback, new ideas, assisting or participating in one of our many events, contributions to the Newsletter… anything they feel they can share!

He has great stamina and is happy to work in all weather. He has an aristocratic air, with a lively but stable temperament. His short coarse, easy to care for coat is richly coloured in russet gold.
