Vizsla Stalks “Wolf”

My preference is to provide Citizen Canine readers with original material, but sometimes an article or video on the Internet is so good that I’m happy to pass it on for everyone’s enjoyment.

Behold the Vizsla, originally a pointer/retriever from Hungary.  As with other pointing breeds, when another animal triggers a predatory response, the Vizsla will often stalk the other animal.

My favorite parts of this short clip are at the 1:52 mark when the stealthy Vizsla’s left front leg is as rigid and stiff as a stick, and I like watching the back feet come up in perfect slow motion as we can see the hard-wired behavior in action.

And best of all, I loved, loved, loved the Wizard of Oz music at the very end.  Perfection!
