V - Vizsla
I'm only able to show one breed of dog for the letter 'V' and I had to go to Hungary for that.

Vizslas originated in Hungary; sporting dogs they are the smallest of the Pointer breed. Classed as a gun dog they are used for hunting fowl and upland game. Although they are sporting dogs a Vizsla makes a good household companion and a family dog.
Excellent swimmers, they love the water as Rosie demonstrates.

A Vizsla bred in Australia was Best in Show at Crufts in 2010. Known as Yogi, his show name was "Hungargrunn Bear It'n Mind."
There is a Wire-haired Vizsla also, but it is a separate breed developed in 1930 by interbreeding of a Vizsla with the German Wire-haired Pointer.
I have yet to see either in the flesh.
