This was one of the pictures that fed my (incorrect, to judge from the responses I got) assumption that Vizslas were a little skittish. You can see he’s not quite sure what to make of me, and he doesn’t look too happy to be forced to find out. Once I spent a couple minutes letting him sniff me, he decided I didn’t seem too threatening and let me pet him, but he was never very comfortable with it.
Could be he was a rescue dog that came from a bad situation, or something like that. Or maybe he just wasn’t having a good day… lord knows I’ve had days where I felt like that.
