Cesky Terrier Breeders, Breed Clubs and Rescue
The Cesky Terrier was developed in the Czech Republic by geneticist Dr Frantisek Horak who wanted to create a short-legged hunting terrier who was courageous enough to hold his own against the fox or badger. The name actually translates as ‘Bohemia’.
He based the Cesky Terrier on the Scottish Terrier which he crossed with Dandie Dinmont and Sealyham. The first litter was born in 1949 and was recognised by the Czechoslovakian Kennel Club ten years later.
The Cesky has not been in the UK for long, and is still on the Import Register. He is a sturdy, low set dog and is long in proportion to height, measuring at between 11 – 14″. The coat is wavy with a silky sheen, in grey-blue or light brown and is clipped in a manner similar to the Sealyham; this needs a fair bit of expertise to achieve good results.
He is a friendly and companionable dog, though at present it is quite difficult to obtain a puppy and you should expect to wait for one to become available.

Rescue and Rehoming
If you need to rehome your own dog, first contact the breeder to see what support she can offer. If that doesn’t resolve your problem then contact a designated Rescue organisation (if one exists) or a Breed Club.
