Not sure how accurate this is, but interesting breed history. Rarity means an upcharge.  lefty 
Here's the other thing to consider about a dog from working lines ... chances are you will get an average dog. No one will sell you the pick of a working litter. Or show litter for that matter. This is good. You want is a dog that's not too drivey or too dull, with identifiable drives that you can use to guide, control and train him.   Given the choice between an average working Vizsla that should be tractable and an average show Vizsla that may or may not be tractable,...
Maybe it's the greatest goddamn chicken sandwich on the face of the earth, but to stand in a 200 person line at the corner of 6th and 37th (where you have plenty of decent options) struck me as somewhat San Franciscan.    lefty
Random thoughts.   dcg, you did a great job with the dog, but her shyness is bred in, which is why it's nearly impossible for you to eradicate.

I'm not saying they're poor dogs (aside from health), but Conne is a first-time dog owner (I believe) and a dane is physically a lot of dog.    Conne, borrow one. Stuff it into your car and bring it home. Let it lay across your sofa and bed and check if there's room for you. Feed it and see how much water and food spills from its flews onto your new floors. If you're cool with that, start looking for one.   A friendly dane will get you laid like gangbusters. But that's...
