This part of the Vizsla's history fascinates me and is one of the reasons I got this breed. A dog breed that goes back 1,000+ years was almost completely eliminated because of a political agenda.

"Protest against GOLDEN GATE KENNEL CLUB dog show!"
"PLEASE WEAR ALL BLACK and LEAVE YOUR COMPANION ANIMALS AT HOME PLEASE. Bring extra dog collars and leashes for display!
We will have a "body bag" display to symbolize the 3-4 millions of animals killed at shelters because of breeding. We will also have someone in a dog costume and a "euthanasia technician".
Our message will be that not only can you rescue pure bred dogs from shelters and rescue groups, but more importantly, it is not about what the dog looks like!
People adopt animals because of the joy, love and complete loyalty they provide us, completing our lives and filling them with happiness.
If people who buy dogs from breeders "love the breed" they would not contribute to the death and suffering of dogs in shelters of that same breed.
Please come out and be a voice for these animals and let people know that breeders KILL shelter dogs' chances at LIFE!"
