In November 2022 we welcomed the opportunity to acquire Rigby (Ch Ponsonby Mega Star (AI)(Imp NZ). Bred by Kath Lodge of Ponsonby Hungarian Vizslas, and titled by his former owner Janelle Willoughby, Rigby carries the bloodlines of Ch Pitswarren Judah (Imp UK) and Ponsonby dogs related to those we have bred from, but is sufficiently […]
Leo’s sire is Grand Champion Kimlise Reilley Viane, the sire of the very successful Avant litter. His dam is Coquette, who is half sister to Tutti.
Leo stayed with us until he was 4 months old so that we could expose him to showing, when he went to live with an experienced couple in Melbourne from the UK, one of whom judged miniature dachsunds and bred dachsunds there.
As a pup, Leo was calm, intelligent and tractable.
Leif is another son of Coquette, sired by Opus, and has the best features of each. Contrary to his unassuming personality, Leif made an attention-grabbing debut in his show career, winning Reserve Dog Challenge and Puppy in Show at the Hungarian Vizsla Club of NSW April Specialty 2023, at the tender age of 9 1/2 months.
Leif’s owner also owns his half sister, and reports that Leif is a gentle, easy to live with dog who likes to talk. As a pup, Leif showed remarkable calm for a young dog, consistent with his sire Opus.
Leif factors into our future breeding plans.
Due to the excellent conformation and temperaments of the Metropolis Avant litter, having successfully campaigned and titled 3 Vizlsas from this litter (including Ch Metropolis Avant Tout and RUBISS Ch Metropolis Avant Centaurus,), a repeat mating was undertaken producing Metropolis Luna and 9 siblings in late April 2014.
Luna is an enthusiastic and independent minded girl who responds well to firm leadership and is full of joy.
Luna stayed with Metropolis for a year in 2016 while her owner was in the US, and produced a litter of beautiful calm pups sired by Monsieur.
Sasha has all of her mother Tutti’s good qualities with less selective hearing! Sasha has the light footed effortless movement of her dam, and reflects the Hungarian influence of her sire, NZ Ch Ponsonby Pinball Wizard, and has proven to be an easygoing loving family pet, and a dedicated mother who produces elegant easygoing pups.
Sasha lives as a family pet, and is an important member of our breeding program.
Caesar is a beloved and very intelligent family pet. He has his mother Tutti’s movement and his grandsire Reilley’s determination, combined with a slightly lighter build than some of our dogs. The highlight of Caesar’s showing career was winning Best Head In Specialty twice at the Specialty shows held by the NSW Hungarian Vizsla Club.
One of the greatest compliments we have received is from a breeder we respect who commented that Caesar has “perfect hindquarter construction. This is really hard to get perfect, easy to get near perfect but hard to get exact.” Caesar also has perfect cat-like feet, which we use as examples of how nails should be maintained!
Snoopy is a family pet who we wanted to breed from but were unable to keep due to our numbers.
His sire is Wixten and his dam is Swan, which means he has a healthy, substantially English pedigree and an outgoing easy to manage temperament once he realises that his owner is in charge.
As of 2023, he has sired 2 litters resulting in easygoing confident pups, including Joie and the ERII litter, and factors into our breeding plans.
Lilly was the beloved family pet of a young woman as well as showing very successfully for us. She had a soft temperament, and wanted only to be with her humans and please them.
Sadly she contracted a stomach bacteria in the Northern Territory which stripped her intestines of the ability to absorb nutrition properly, and ultimately led to her death at age 6. Lilly showed typical vizsla stoicism and seemed to be the only one who did not realise the seriousness of her condition.
She was one of our favourite dogs to show because she was so easy to handle and enjoyable to be with. She is greatly missed, and lives on through her offspring in the Superstar litter.
Wixten is similar in physique and temperament to his pedigree sister Tutti and his litter sister Luna. His pedigree is substantially English, with a healthy dose of both Ch Pitswarren Esther and Ch Pitswarren Judah.
His movement is light and effortless, and he is a medium sized dog of good substance with the famous vizsla selective hearing. As of 2023, Wixten is the sire of Snoopy, and factors into our breeding plans for the future.
While we will not breed from Ice due to a range of factors, she achieved great success in her show career, with the highlight being:
RUNNER UP BEST IN SPECIALTY and BITCH CHALLENGE – HUNGARIAN VIZSLA CLUB OF NSW October 2019 under Mr Steward Cummings (Ireland).
Her sister Fire was pick of the litter, and has produced some beautiful and well loved offspring, including Seraphina.
