Cesky Terrier Information

Cesky TerrierThis rare breed has a short and well-documented history. Frantisek Horak, a Czech breeder, decided to cross a Scottie and a Sealyham together in 1948 to create a dog more suitable for the forests of Bohemia. The result is the Cesky Terrier, a feisty, bold pup who can also be calm and mellow with his family. In fact, he’s a little more laid back than most Terriers.

The Cesky Terrier is a small, muscular dog with short legs and a long neck. Their coat comes in several different shades of gray with lighter markings. Note that their facial hair is wavy, giving the Cesky quite a unique ‘do!
