The first Cesky Terrier was produced by crossing a male Sealyham Terrier and a female Scottish Terrier. The aim was a light, short-legged hunting terrier with good pigmentation and small drop ears that was easy to train and easy to groom. František Horák from near Prague established the breed characteristics in 1949 and Cesky Terriers were first shown under their name ten years later. The F.C.I. recognized the breed in 1963.
Shaped like a long, blunt wedge, not too broad. The upper lines of forehead and face produce a clear break at the bridge of the nose. Medium-sized eyes, slightly deep-set, expressing friendliness, well covered with overhanging eyebrows.
Oblong, moderately arched, broad, muscular lumbar region, prolonged by the well developed, muscular croup, solid back of medium-length.
Gray-blue (puppies are born black) and light brown (puppies are born dark chocolate brown).
Medium-sized, drooped to hide the inner ear completely.
Ideally, 7-8 inches long, set low, fairly thick.
Long, fine but firm, slightly wavy, silky gloss, not too abundant, clipped.
Originally used to hunt foxes and badgers, nowadays Cesky Terriers are mainly used as companions. Muscular and well built but not at all antagonistic, these especially calm, pleasant and cheerful dogs are somewhat reserved toward strangers.
