Origin
There is some debate regarding the origin of this breed. Some believe it was developed during the last century. Others, however, feel that it’s ancestry can be dated to circa 1010 AD, as primitive art from the same period shows Hungarian hunting folk using dogs, which could have been the forefathers of this breed. Either way, it’s now part of the Gundog Group owing to its formidable retrieving skills.
