We have a one year old vizsla whose dad turned white at a young age. She has a few white hairs sprinkled throughout her coat, but otherwise a gorgeous dark red color. It just made me curious as to how young vizslas usually are when they start to show that "wisdom"???

It's crazy how some lines have the early white in them.

I used to work for a v breeder. One of his lines of dogs would go white at just under 2 years! Each dog is going to be different, of course.

I have a dog from a different line, but I'm expecting her to start going white around 3-4. Her mom has held her color, but not her father.

How old were her parents when you saw them? I'm pretty sure they all reach a point they start to turn, it's just some are earlier/later than others.

I think this varies greatly. The breeder I got my pup from had three Vs. The oldest was 13 and only had a sprinkling of white on her face. The other two were 3 and 5 and had none.
