Ruger was the first vizsla we kept out of our lines. He was the pick pup from our Madison bread to Ranny owned by Jim and Linda Busch. Our Decision to keep Ruger was made when he was 5 weeks old in a wing and string competition. I asked Jim about entering him and I was told “sure if you can keep him awake”. He won his first ribbon that day and continued to win until his retirement. His last National placement was a 4th at just uner 12 years old.
Ruger and I have enjoyed competing in Vizsla and All Breed trials across the country. He has a drive that won’t quit, and his stamina is fantastic. Ruger has always been handled in the field by Mark his amateur owner with the exception of 1 stake. Ruger has been on the VCA Top Ten lists, and Ranked #1 VCA Top 10 virtually his whole career. His drive, style and flash have allowed him to excel in competition. His desire to please and temperament have made him a joy to own.

Ruger is a hard charging male that handles easily and is a pleasure to hunt over. He passes his looks, style, drive and temperament on to his puppies. You can find them winning in the field, show and agility ring along with lounging on couches in the home. Ruger’s kind sweet temperament made him wonderful around puppies, older dogs and children.
Ruger was much more than a competition dog; he was a companion, a friend and part of our family. We were lucky to be owned by him.
