The Hungarian Vizsla, or the Hungarian Pointer, is a hunting breed popular not only because of its excellent working qualities, but also because of its affectionate nature, which makes it an excellent companion. One of the characteristic features of this breed is that it is constantly located next to the owner. This is due to the initial purpose of the breed. Hungarian cops were bred as girlfriends, which, on the one hand, were able to point out prey and bring it, and on the other, they could constantly be next to the hunter. For this reason, if you do not like the constant presence of a dog, you should choose another breed.
