Cesky Terrier

The Cesky Terrier was bred from a Sealyham and a Scottish Terrier in 1949 in the Czech Republic by Frantisik Horak who named the new breed the Cesky Terrier. This dog is useful for hunting pheasants, ducks, rabbits, foxes and wild boar. He was designed to work in packs and is regarded as one of the national breeds of that country. He has been featured on TV, on postage stamps, in books and also in a movie.

He has short legs and a muscular build. He has droopy ears and a soft, long coat that varies in colours including platinum, charcoal and gray. He’s loyal to his family but reserved when with strangers. He loves digging and needs regular exercise and a yard that’s secure. His coat needs moderate grooming and monthly clipping. He stands at 10 – 13 inches high.
