Hungarian hunting dogs, these are bird retrievers, as well as game trailers and pointers. This breed (or close ancestors) are well over 1000 years old. Most of these dogs were found in Central Europe, so WW I nearly killed off the entire breed. They were saved by a few dedicated breeders and in the 1950s, were brought to America.
These dogs are not as neurotic as Weimeraners, but can cycle between emotions quickly. They are incredibly affectionate and highly active. They are a wonderful breed for a single parent or couple, but might be too much for children. I often call them an outboard motor with fur.
