BRIEF HISTORY OF BREED
The ancestors of the Hungarian vyzhly came to the Carpathian basin with nomadic Hungarian tribes. The first written descriptions and graphic illustrations are found in documents of the 14th century. Since the 18th century, its role as a hunting breed has rapidly begun to grow. Since the end of the 19th century, in Hungary, they began to organize field competitions for Pointing dogs, in which the Hungarian survived participated with great success. During this period, the development of the breed was actively used by other dog breeds. Modern breed breeding clean began in 1920. And as a result - in 1936, the short-haired Hungarian survived gained recognition by FCI.
