Zöldmáli Etna is a daughter of my Lepke and Django DDSH and littersister of Extreme and Echo. My original plan was, to keep the best out of the 3 puppies, but all 3 of them turned out exceptional. I don’t know of any other Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla litter, where 3 pups out the litter would hold CACIT and resCACIT titles before the age of 1,5 years. Etna earned her first CACT and CACIT title at less than 16 months of age, on her very first competition, (a 2 days long international Field and Water Competition), where she performed all tasks with maximum scores. A few weeks later, on her 2nd competition, she gained resCACT title (also Field and Water Competition).
Her brother, Extreme won 2X CACIT and 2 X CACT on International Field Trial at 17 months of age, and sister Echo got the resCACIT, resCACT title (2nd place).
Etna is a medium sized, very balanced looking girl. Already with 5 months of age, she caught the eyes of the judges on shows, and was awarded Puppy Best in Show 2nd place. The very first time she was able to enter junior class and compete for the Best of Breed title, she gained Best of Breed. But as many of you know, I am not really a show fan. I only show my dogs to prove the World, the Top Hunting Dogs can be just as successful on show. Working abilities and good conformation should go hand in hand and not closing out each other.
Etna is a true versatile vizsla. Very easy to train, wants to please you, still have all the drive I need for a winner competition dog. She is calm and smart, has confidence and a great problem solving ability. She has proven her exceptional qualities by passing all the hunting test and trials with 1st prize at a very young age, than went on winning her first competition, competing with the top gundogs of Hungary. Etna also gained 17 p. ‘excellent’ qualification on Field Trial with 17 months and was the member of the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Team of Hungary on the Field Trial European Cup in Tuscany (Italy) in 2016, along with Echo and Extreme, winning 2nd place as a Team.
We feel very fortunate to own dogs like Etna. She is a wonder-dog.
