Bismark was the show dog of a generation, earning 316 Best of Breed wins, 192 group placements and 14 All-Breed Best in Show wins. He was not just a stand out in the breed. This dog could hunt, having earned two legs toward his master hunter title. Owned by the pop star “Seal” and Beverley Wanjon, Bismark was handled exclusively by Beverley Wanjon. The pair holds the record of All Time Top Winning Breeder/Owner-Handled Vizsla in the breeds history! Bismark won the 2001 VCA National Specialty and 2003 VCA National Specialty in the veteran class and was Best of Opposite in 1999.
Bismark was a true character. He loved the attention and had many tricks up his sleeve as seen in his sitting up Best in Show photo. His favorite was demonstrating how he could count.
From his twelve litters, he leaves a legacy that includes 37 conformation champions in the first generation. Among them are several Best in Specialty Show winners, group placers, an All-Breed Best in Show winner, 2010 Best of Breed Westminster Kennel Club, top-ten ranked and the first Grand Champion Vizsla of all time. His second generation packs an even greater punch with 53 conformation Champions and 11 Grand Champions, including the 2014 Best of Breed Westminster Kennel Club, multiple Best in Specialty Show winners, top ten ranked dogs and top honors in the field with a Master Hunter and a Rally Excellent and Utility Obedience dog.
Distinguished and fabled, ‘Bismark’ CH Russet Leather Warrior’s Mark JH ROM has certainly left his mark.
