Be an informed puppy buyer and do your research.  Reputable breeders health test all of their parents prior to breeding.  Familiarize yourself with Vizla breeding protocols and specific health testing.  A valuable resource is the Canine Health Registry http://www.caninehealthinfo.org/

Have you found one yet? We searched high and low for one. He came from IL… We drove 18+ hours for him. $800 with papers, shots, tail docked, dewclaws removed, and health exams. I am sure I could find his breeder again. He is a beautiful dog and so true to the breed. Message me if you are still looking or want more information on how ours from them turned out.

katy13:  I know this dog.  I actually know someone that got one from a adoption place.  That said, yes breeders can be difficult to get a hold of.  I had to make connections with several people who don’t live in my state to be connected to the right breeder.  And I do agree that if your dealing with a professional breeder your not going to find a dog for less than $1,500.  In my experience pure breed dogs run more like $3,000 dollars.  

If you feel like this is to much I’d try to make some connections at adoption places.  Talk to people who are willing to take the time to connect you with the right dog.  You may have to get it shipped in from out of state or from Canada.  Talk to people that show their dogs.  Sometimes people that show want to sell their pure breed at a fraction of the price once they can’t show anymore.

My grandma breeds Goldens and they sell the pups for 1500 to 2500 per puppy. It all depends on the bloodline. I’ve never heard of that breed so maybe that’s why the cost more since they’re not very common. I hope you have found a pup now!

katy13:  are you getting the dog for aesthetics? Vizslas are working/hunting dogs, and people breed them with that in mind. I just see a lot of inner city folk getting high energy dogs like vizslas and Airedale terriers and being surprised that they can’t wear them out.

I spent $500 on my Airedale and thought “what a steal!” Turns out the breeder was a “backyard breeder” which is a step up from a puppy mill, which is why he was so inexpensive. And you really don’t want to support that kind of business venture.

my advice is to go to pounds, or look for a hunting dog rescue group in your area if you really want a vizsla.
