Breed Description

The Cesky Terrier is a small but sturdy, rectangular terrier with short legs, drop-ears, long coat and a big heart. Calm, responsive and devoted, the Cesky makes a wonderful family pet in a wide range of living situations. The Cesky is less aggressive and independent, and more eager to please, than the typical terrier. The Cesky Terrier has a relatively short and well-documented history. The breed was developed by Frantisek Horák, a geneticist in the Czech Republic, by crossing a Sealyham Terrier and Scottish Terrier. His aim was to develop a light, short-legged, drop eared, hunting terrier that was easy to groom and train, could hunt fox and badgers in groups, and could "go to ground" and fit in burrows too small for it’s parent breeds.

Breed Infobits

The Cesky can be very protective of its family and so makes a great watch-dog.
The endearing expression and amazing sense of play go together to make a cheeky little dog.
