Aaron and April Leusink
We are the Leusink Family from LeMars, IA. We are a family of 6 ( "Leu6" ) that loves the Vizsla breed and have been owners since 1999. Our family is very active, so the Vizsla is a great fit for us. We have been breeding quality puppies for more than 20 years. We have carefully placed our puppies with loving families from coast to coast in the United States. In fact, we have numerous return customers based on our honest and informative communication along with top quality Vizsla puppies. Our children are ages 10-19 and they love to interact with the puppies from the moment they are born. Please check the site for pictures and information about our Vizslas and contact us for current availability.
About the Vizsla
A good description of the Vizsla breed can be found at AKC.org which says:
The Vizsla is easily recognized by his sleek golden-rust coat. They can stand between 21 to 24 inches at the shoulder and are the picture of a lean, light-footed hunter’s companion. The long, silky ears frame a facial expression that is sensitive and loving around the house and intense when at work. As a hunter expected to work closely with humans, Vizslas form a tight bond with their owners and hate to be left alone.
Athletes of many talents, Vizslas excel at various sports and activities. They are eager and graceful trotters of great stamina, making them ideal jogging or biking companions. An expert on the breed tells us, “If you don’t have the time to encourage this breed’s full use of its brain, you’re wasting a good dog.”
I agree with this description and strongly encourage all potential new owners to fully understand the Vizsla breed before deciding if it is the right breed for your lifestyle. They do not enjoy sitting in a kennel during the day and taking a walk on a leash at night. They require daily interaction and room to run and explore off leash. They make excellent companions for active families.
Purchasing a Vizsla Puppy
Males and Females are $1,200. We require a $300 non-refundable deposit to hold a puppy for you. The picking order is determined by the order in which deposits are received. We accept cash, personal checks, and certified bank checks. Final payments must be made by at least two weeks prior to puppy departure if shipping is required or by cash if you will be picking up your puppy at our home. We start matching puppies to families at approximately 6 weeks old. If you are unable to visit us and interact with the puppies, we will assist you in the picking process by providing pictures, videos, and descriptions to the best of our ability. Although we do our best to find the best matched puppy for you, their outcome largely depends on the new owners.
