This responsive dog is one of Bohemia's most popular hunting dogs.

Cesky Fousek is a multi-purpose worker, it points, sets and then retrieve from land and water.

At ease in the home, it is almost always amenable with children.

Some individuals can be particularly headstrong and need firm control.

It is possible that ancestors of the Czesky Fousek were pointing and setting wildfowl in the 1400s.

Last century, the breed was reconstituted with the infusion of German Wirehaired and Shorthaired Pointer bloodlines.

First breed to written standards in the late 1800s, the excellent Czesky Fousek deserves recognition outside its native land.
