Dante is one of our French imports. We imported him along with his brother, Zidane, in the aim to broaden our bloodlines. They come from some very exciting work combination: their grandmother on the father’s side is the Top Wirehaired Vizsla in Field Trial in France (Fürdőházi Áldás) and the grandfather is Django DDSH, who has already given us some very special offsprings in our E and K litter of Lepke and Fecske. The mother’s side is also true French working lines, ones that are not present in Hungary.
We thought we would keep the better one from the two, but both of them became exceptionally good. They represent the perfect looking Wirehaired Vizslas. They are still young dogs (born September 2015) but already have some impressive titles in show. Especially Dante catches the judges’ eyes. He is somewhat more robust in type. Both Dante and Zidane are slower maturing than my other dogs, this was especially true to Dante, who liked to fool around when it came to work, but by the end of the 2016 small game season (when they are still only 14 months old), both became excellent hunting dogs.
Their natural abilities (pointing, retrieving, love of water) came out already at an early age, they passed the Natural Ability Test and the Hunting Aptitude Test with maximum scores at 7 months of age. But after that, their teenage period began, when they started to fool around. Luckily we got over this, and both of them are now prepared for the Field and Water Test (VMV) that will take place in spring.
Both Dante and Zidane have a very kind and friendly character. Calm dogs who love to get cuddled. Real companions.
