In this post we will be talking about the very 10 fastest dog breeds in the world. We all know that dogs are endowed with speed but the fact still remain that there are some dog breeds you can catch up with in a race while there are some that you will be knocked down shamelessly in terms of speed.
Curious to know these dog breeds? Let’s move on…
The Vizsla is a dog breed originating in Hungary, which belongs under the FCI group 7. The Hungarian or Magyar Vizsla are sporting dogs and loyal companions, in addition to being the smallest of the all-round pointer-retriever breeds.
The breed has been a trusted hunting dog from as early as the 10th century and they run at an estimated 25 mph whilst on the hunt. Unfortunately, during World War II the breed faced extinction after being nearly overrun by English Pointers and German Shorthair Pointers. It is estimated that only around a dozen survived, but the Visla somehow managed to fight its way back to prominence. With a fearless nature and an immensely protective instinct, they are known as beloved companions who quickly form close bonds with their owners, earning the nickname ‘velcro vizslas’ due to forever being by their pack’s side.
