Portrait of the first Bonneterre Vizslas

Ray Rowan has been breeding Vizslas since 1977 (when he had a full head of hair) which is evidenced in the pictures below. Ray’s vizslas have achieved many milestones throughout the years including:

  1. Inaugural Tibor Reitor Award in 1980 given to Ray’s CH Cincilli’s Sasha FD FDX NAVHDA Prize UTIII.
  2. First prize #1 NAVHDA NA (Natural Ability) in North America

It all started with Ray’s first dog, a beautiful girl named Yeona who is pictured below. Ray recognized Yeona’s great qualities and chose her to become his foundation bitch. Yeona’s great grandchildren can be seen on the pages of this website continuing her winning ways in the show ring and in the field.
