About Lonestar Rodeo Kennel...

Lonestar Rodeo started as a project of love for a family in memory of  their beloved pet-a beautiful, loving Weisla ( a cross between an AKC  Vizsla and AKC Weimerauner from Dallas) who with her passng brought much sorrow. Though we have enjoyed a litter, the family now concentrates their efforts on the Vizsla. The puppies are raised by a single mom and her adopted kids to help pay for college.   The puppies are born and raised in a family home environment. They are handled and loved on from the moment they are born.

Raising the pups has been like getting extended family. Some of the pups have been "showy" while others are busy in the fields with gunfire; some are swimming the lakes or in a backyard pool, and some are running tracks and trails with their new best friends. The "velcro dog" longs to be close, so yes we know of some that have keep  company on the couch for a season finale or the big game on TV.

Could the Vizsla be the dog for you?

If you want to know more about adopting a pup, or about our experiences with the breed, please feel free to contact us. This site was set up because we are very busy about work, school and living. As this world we live in has become so "-------". I just do not have the patience to stop and take a seperate picture for every inquiry with a coffee mug to prove the pups are alive as some websites suggest. I would rather go to the lake with my Vizsla...but we can make time to arrange a visit for you with a litter or with your perspective pup. As we always have. And we have always tried to get back to you as soon as reasonable wth updated pictures.                                                                                                           -Aunt Sharon

About a Vizsla...

The Vizsla, also known as the Hungarian Vizsla, Hungarian Pointer, and Magyar Vizsla, is one of the oldest and most distinguished pointers in the world. A versatile dog that can point, flush and retrieve. A medium-sized hunter with a typical height of 21 to 25 inches and weight of 40 to 65 pounds, the Vizsla is most often noticed for its beautiful rusty gold or reddish-brown color.  It's one of the most sensitive, intelligent, loyal, energetic, and affectionate dogs. For these reasons and more, the Vizsla breed has gained a passionate and ever-growing following in the United States, Europe, and beyond.

The Vizsla dog breed has a pedigree to match its character. The Vizsla has been traced back to the Magyars of the 9th and 10th centuries AD, and appears in illustrations throughout the Middle Ages as a hunting and falconry companion of Hungarian nobles. Though imperiled by WWI and WWII, the Vizsla breed was lovingly preserved by Hungarian breeders and emigrants. The Vizsla has thrived since being given official recognition in 1960 by the American Kennel Club, and has become a highly sought-after breed among active families and those seeking dual-purpose or triple-purpose dogs.
