Hungarian Squeezed (Hungarian Pointing Dog)
The Hungarian survived comes from the ancient hunting dogs that were used by the Magyars in the hunt, this is a kind of Hungarian pointer. The ancestors of these pets lived on the territory of Hungary more than 1000 years ago, and the modern survived, of course, is somewhat different from its predecessors, but there are much more similarities than differences.
In fact, it’s hard to say exactly how long ago these dogs appeared on the territory of Hungary, since today experts draw conclusions only from the available evidence. One of them is an engraving of the 10th century, where a smooth-haired, long-legged, thin dog is very similar to a pogo, depicted with a huntsman. Another very noteworthy evidence is the chapter in the manuscript book on the falconry, which, together with the description, depicts a dog that is almost identical to the Hungarian surviving.
Hunters and dog breeders of those distant times did their best to breed, in order to improve the main qualities, thanks to which, by the end of the 18th, beginning of the 20th century, a surprising scent developed. Dogs were greatly appreciated by aristocrats, and every nobleman had a flock, or at least a few individuals that were constantly used in hunting. In addition, these animals could develop tremendous speed, which is why during the First World War they were used to deliver reports.
However, when the war ended, the breed was on the verge of extinction, as the consequences for many European countries where these dogs developed were terrifying. Only by the great efforts of the dog breeders did the Hungarian dog breed survived to the present day. Although, these dogs had to survive another significant blow to their population – World War II.
Around the beginning of the fifties of the 20th century, the Hungarian survived began its journey to the United States, and then to the UK. The first breed club in America was founded in 1954. It is worth noting that even in the fifties the Hungarian squeezed had a slightly different appearance, in particular, they had longer muzzles, in addition, individuals with somewhat elongated ears were found. The breed is not very popular in the world, but! survived – the first and only dog in the world today, who was a five-time champion – in conformation, in the field, in obedience and dexterity.
The Hungarian Squeezed is a thin, athletic dog with a narrow head and long neck. The head is proportional to the body, the skull is wide, slightly rounded. The ears are long, with rounded tips, lowered and have a V-shape. The limbs are long, the chest is voluminous, the abdominal cavity is expressed. The tail is medium, the coat is short. Color includes shades of reddish-golden.
The dog breed Hungarian survived has a rather soft, flexible character, and needs close contact with the person. That is, this is a certain characteristic that has been developed over centuries of interaction and hunting side by side with its owner. Accordingly, the dog cannot be alone for a long time, in addition, they are also not recommended to be left alone during the day.
So, if you are busy full time, and there is no one to stay with the animal, it is better to have a different breed of dog. This will not only negatively affect the mental state of the dog, but will also create more serious and, so to speak, tangible, difficulties for you – after all, the animal will become destructive, begin to gnaw at furniture, scatter things, destroy your shoes and clothes, and generally behave extremely chaotically.
This behavior is directly related to a high level of energy, not only with attachment to loved ones, because it is a hunting dog that needs a variety of activities. Active games, running, physical exercises and long walks – all this should be carried out daily, otherwise, not only the emotional state, but also the state of health will worsen, since the body of such breeds is initially predisposed to high activity.
In the circle of his family, the dog usually shows great love and affection, always trying to participate in family affairs and generally be closer to his people. The Hungarian breed survived well and kindly to children, not only because it sees them as a companion for various games and entertainment, but simply because these dogs, in principle, feel a certain predisposition to children. Smart, understanding.
An ideal place to keep such a pet is a private house with its own courtyard and forest nearby, but thanks to its wonderful nature, it survived without any problems living in a city apartment, with the proper amount of activity and walking. It should be noted that if you still live in a private house, these dogs are excellent for watchdog functions, although they are friendly to people. But – not when they are responsible for the house and household.
With strangers, friends of your home, you most likely will never have problems since your pet will try to make friends with your guest after a very short period of acquaintance. Conflicts with other dogs are rare.
