Ch Pitswarren Picasso (Imp UK)

Picasso was imported from England by Kimlise Kennels in 2008. He was bred by Pitswarren Hungarian Vizslas - - who are considered by many around the world to be one of the most successful Hungarian Vizsla kennels ever. His litter brother, SH.CH.PITSWARREN PLANET JW Sh.CM., is the top Winning owner bred and shown Vizsla ever in the U.K, and his wins include Best of Breed at Crufts and UK Gundog of the Year.

Pitswarren vizslas were the foundation of Kimlise’ bloodlines, and Picasso and Kimlise are the foundation of Metropolis’ bloodlines. The desirability of Picasso’s bloodlines is demonstrated by some of Australia’s most well known kennels, Tanashka and Hanafor, promoting descendants from Picasso.  Picasso sired the winner of the Best in Specialty Show - US - at the April 2015 Hungarian Vizsla Club of NSW Specialty Show, and all other Metropolis entries (grandsired by Picasso) won or placed in their classes across both the UK and US Specialty Shows held by the Hungarian Vizsla Club of NSW on 5 April 2015.

Due to Kimlise Kennels retiring, Picasso came to live with Metropolis late in 2012. Many non-gundog experts have been struck by how balanced he is, how well he moves, and his quiet calm temperament. He is father to 2 of our bitches and granddad to all dogs under the Metropolis prefix. His quiet exterior belies his love for squeaky toys, his helicopter spins come dinner time, and his determination to be noticed.

At the age of 6 ½ Picasso came second in the Open class, and won Best Gait, in the October 2013 NSW Hungarian Vizsla Club Specialty Show, where Judge P Achtergael (Belgium) critiqued him including:

“6 ½ years. Masculine head, good eye colour, full scissor bite,… ears well set and carried. Good angulated [sic] in front and behind, forechest OK, good bone, excellent feet, tail well set … Moves very well from the side. Very nice type.”

Picasso factors into our breeding plans for both temperament and physique.
