About Hungarian Vizslas - Vizslas are well known for their insatiable desire to be close to their humans, hence the nickname "Velcro Dog". They are experts at wedging themselves next to their owners, climbing over them and draping themselves around their beloved human companions. They crave attention and are incurable snugglers. An old Hungarian proverb says "If you own a Vizsla, it lives on top of your head"!

Vizslas were prized companions and hunting partners of ancient Magyar warriors who, with the help of their falcons, flushed out prey on the vast plains. They were soon adopted as the dog of choice by Hungarian nobility and Vizslas were sometimes presented to favoured foreign royalty and so came to be known as 'the gift of the kings". Fortunately Vizslas narrowly escaped extinction when the Soviets invaded Hungary towards the end of the second world war.

Vizslas are very clever and are notorious mischief-makers when bored. They frequently out-think their owners and can be especially smart and sneaky when it comes to food - opening cupboards and counter surfing - and nothing is considered out of bounds! Many have a fetish for socks, laundry, tissues, shoes and toilet paper, which they particularly enjoy shredding!

With their trademark sleek, red-gold coat and amber eyes, it's hard to resist their adoring gaze and unending desire just to be loved.

The 'Dog Tag' prints celebrate the history and characteristics that define particular breeds. The "dog tag" design idea came from thoughts about the plight of dogs in rescue centres and shelters. Debbie from The Enlightened Hound imagined that they might be wearing a dog tag that helped prospective owners find out more about the dog in the hope that they might be rescued and given a ‘forever home’.
