Bearded Czech

Breed History
Originally from former Czechoslovakia, the Bearded Czech was commonly encountered there until the outbreak of the First World War. The breed was even known from the Middle Ages. She was on the verge of extinction following the First World War, but many passionate breeders managed to keep enough dogs to preserve her and contribute to her rebirth.

The “Wire-Coated Pointing Dogs” club was founded in 1924, and the first official breed standard was published in 1931, but unofficially. Its first official standard was established well after the 2nd World War, in 1958. Today, the Czech Bearded is one of the most used hunting dogs in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognized the breed definitively on May 21, 1963, and published its official standard in force.
