The ancestors of the Braco Hungarian came with the first nomadic Hungarian tribes. The first written mentions and representations appear in14th century documents. Their special significance for hunting grows from the 18th century.
At the end of the 19th century, tests for Bracos in which the Vizsla participated with excellent performance.
At that time, other hunting dogs were involved in the breed formation. Oriented and regulated breeding began in 1920, being recognized by FCI in 1936 as the Hungarian Pointer of short hair.
