The origins of dogs developed in the 20th century are much better documented than in older breeds, so we know in detail how wirehair vizslas were created in the 1930s. But here's the short version: Hungarian hunters and hawks wanted a dog with the same drive and versatility of their beloved Vizslas, but with a strong frame and a dense coat, to work in the puny terrain and cold weather of northern Hungary its better. He achieved this by a prudent cross of Vizslas and German wirehaired pointers.
