Looking for a Vizsla Puppy???

Plan to wait 6 months (or longer) for a well-bred puppy from a preservation breeder.

What is a preservation breeder?  Preservation breeders intentionally breed dogs for health, happiness and preservation of the breed. We do not produce dogs for dog shows and to fulfill puppy sales and wait lists. We are dedicated to bringing purposely-bred dogs into the world, healthy dogs with predictable characteristics, intellect and disposition. With that, we want to help them be healthy and happy, and give them the best chance to have a great, long lives in well-deserved, loving forever homes.

Beware of breeders who always have puppies or those who are in the puppy business, neither is a good thing. Educate yourself on buying online, visit “PupQuest” to learn more about reputable breeders and “Website Warning Signs” .

Looking for a puppy as a gift? Please read “The Christmas Puppy: Why You Shouldn’t Get One”

If you feel you can offer an exceptional home and are able to submit to a lengthy interview process, please inquire. We invest a lot of time, energy and effort into our puppies, and are looking for like-minded people who deserve a Moonlight Vizsla Puppy.

About A Moonlight Vizsla Puppy

Our Breeding Program places the focus on quality, not quantity.

Our goal is to produce dogs who can compete in multiple venues, Show, Hunt, Obedience, Agility . . . AND make wonderful companions.   We only breed dogs of sound temperament, correct breed type, natural hunting ability, and overall good health.   Planning a litter is a huge undertaking which begins months (sometimes years) ahead of time. We undertake extensive health testing before breeding; dogs are OFA cleared for Hips, Thyroid and Eyes, which adheres to the CHIC recommended health screenings for Vizslas (link to more info: CHIC certification).  Often they have Cardiac, Elbow or PennHip testing as well.

When have puppies available, they will be adopted out with a 3-year health guarantee, and a lifetime of support and advice to the new family. Both the Sire and Dam of our puppies will be AKC Conformation Champions and/or Grand Champions (not just a “champion pedigree”) who are AKC and DNA Registered.  Parents will have well-bred pedigrees full of titled dogs, and a history of relevant/verifiable multi-generational health clearances.

For the first 8-10+ weeks of life, our puppies will be be safely socialized both inside and outside our home, cared for and raised with the highest standards possible (24 hours a day). We do not operate a “kennel”. Our litters are raised via Puppy Culture which includes early neurological stimulation, emotional resiliency exercises, teaching puppies to communicate needs politely, handling frustration, early positive crate training, and early house training. Puppy Culture builds a calm, confident, and adaptable puppy that is a pleasure to add to your family.

Due to the amount of time and effort put into the Moonlight Vizslas breeding program, we are highly selective where these puppies are placed.  If, for any reason, an owner cannot keep their puppy/dog, it must be returned to us.   

We are members of the Vizsla Club of America (VCA) and abide by the Code of Ethics, and maintain membership in several other Regional Vizsla Clubs.

We are happy to discuss the breed with you, and see if it is a good fit for your family and lifestyle; additionally, you can read about the breed on our Vizsla Information webpage.  If there is not an available puppy, we can refer you to another Reputable Breeder, Regional Club or Rescue.  Prepare to wait 4-6 months (or likely, longer) for a puppy from any Reputable Breeder. You will find that the time and effort put into finding a puppy from a Reputable Breeder – well worth the wait.

Moonlight Vizslas • AKC Breeder of Merit • BRONZE

“The Breeder of Merit Program honors breeder/exhibitors’ dedication and hard work as they continue to produce dogs that are healthy, capable, and beautiful.  The foundation of today’s AKC, Breeders of Merit have the power to influence, guide, and teach future breeders, exhibitors, and all purebred dog owners.”

Note:  Just like having AKC papers is not a sign of quality – you will want to thoroughly vet any breeder before buying a puppy – that INCLUDES Breeders’ of Merit.
