can I register my dog with other agencies

If my Vizsla is within breed standards, and is healthy can he be registered with another agency. There are so few of these dogs, although they are growing in popularity that I would think it might be possible

USA?

Regardless of his appearance, as long as he is a pure Vizsla then you can register him with the AKC. Most breeders register their litters and then transfer the title over to you upon adoption. Ask your breeder.

Our friends across the pond can offer local info, but most countries have a "Dog club" like the AKC that acts as a registry, too.

I looked at your past post. Your pup came from the Steffenmeiers. A very well known puppy mill, that sells to pet stores. Your very, very lucky that your pup has been healthy. That is not the case for most of the puppy buyers.
What I've seen from being boots on the ground, for rescue. You can Not trust any paperwork from them. Registration, OFA, health certificate, and shots given, may not belong to the dog/pup in question. It may beong to a different dog that could pass those tests.
Health problems can skip a generation, and then show up in offspring.
If you are wanting to compete with your dog, AKC has a registration for that. But it does Not include registering any litters produced by said dog.

If you want to know more on the Steffenmeiers, contact Debra with New Hope Vizsla rescue.

Enjoy your pup, and consider yourself very blessed that he doesn't have health problems.

I so wish people would come here after the "Should I get a Vizsla?" but before posts like these.

The puppy mills, and byb breeders are getting better at deception. Everytime we post what you look for in a responsible breeder. They use it, to try and appear to be one.
I've even seen where they steal pedigrees online, and try to pass it off as their own.
Name one of their dogs, one letter different than dual Champion Dog. Then use the other dogs OFA to convince buys, they health test. Everything we do to try and protect the breed. They will fraudulently used to sell sick puppies.
It's getting tougher, and tougher to trust people.
You have to build a lot of relationships with long time breeders/mentors, to buy a new puppy these days.

Agreed.

The advantage to enthusiast forums like this is the availability of owners who know, it would be so much better to take advantage of this resource before making such a monumental decision.

Thanks for the responses. I have wanted a Vizsla for a long time, the timing was right, the puppy was ready, and I didn't care that he was ACA and not AKC as long as he was purebred. The store guaranteed their dogs for a year, and included one free visit to a local veterinarian to guarantee his health. I broke my own rule of only buying directly from a breeder, but my sister has adopted three dogs from the shop and after the shop guaranteed the dog I felt OK. After the purchase is when I discovered who the breeder was and got scared. Funny part was I thought I was OK because I didn't buy from a pet store.

My next one will be the right one.
