Dakota is the Perfect example of a male Vizsla! When we take him somewhere, we always have people stop us to compliment him. Even other breeders tell us how wonderful he is. One even said he is the best looking Vizsla he had ever seen. Dakota is very loving and affectionate. He is protective of us and always lets us know when a stranger has come near our home. Of course he is all bark and no bite, but no one else knows that. His is my big teddy bear. Dakota is a wonderful hunter and tracker. Of our three Vizslas, he has the best nose for tracking. He is the all around perfect Vizsla.
