My love for the Wirehaired Vizsla started with my purchase of Remy, in 2002. Being involved with Smooth Vizslas for 25 years at the time, the Wirehair was a dog to have around the house that was different, with no plans to show or breed. Little did I know I was going to fall in love! Knowing the Wirehaired Vizsla was not yet recognized by the American Kennel Club, I pursued finding an outlet where I could exhibit Remy. I found the American Rare Breed Association where she finished her Championship and received the very first and only, even to this day, Best in Show for a Wirehaired Vizsla in any registry! I then showed her in the United Kennel Club after the breed was recognized in 2006, where she not only obtained her Championship, but finished in the Top Ten for 2007 and 2008. Remy was also shown in the Germany based International All Breed Canine Association where she recieved her International Championship. As of 2009, Remy is the only Wirehaired Vizsla in the United States with Championships in three registries! She is sired by the very well known Dutch/Luxemberg CH Fram Od Smutne Ricky. See her on the Our Girls page! Remy's son Reiley, out of my very first WHV litter and sired by Thorn Hill's Caruso, is also an accomplished dog, claiming the very first Wirehaired Vizsla to attain the title of United Kennel Club Grand Champion. Since then he has also received the first Reserve Best in All-Breed Show in the breed's US history. He finished as the UKC #2 Wirehaired Vizsla for 2007 & 2008. Reiley has many Group 1's, Group placements and Best of Breeds to his credit. He is an awesome dog to show, with his love for the show ring, and his silly attitude! Josh and Melissa Joyner give him a wonderful home in North Carolina, and are very proud of his accomplishments. Co-owning this dog with them has been a true honor and I am forever indebted to them for allowing me to show this gorgeous, beautiful moving dog. See him on the Our Boys page! Since then, Vizcaya has purchased two Wirehaired Vizslas and kept two from different Remy litters. We have taken 8 WHV to their UKC Championships, 1 to his Grand Championship, 2 to their International Championships, and 1 to his National Championship. Now, thanks to The Wirehaired Vizsla Club of America, the WHV has been accepted in the American Kennel Club's Foundation Stock Service. We look forward to future days in the AKC show rings! I am a Charter Member of the WHVCA and am on the Board of Directors. This has been a wonderful and fun ride, and I hope to never have to get off this one!!
