The Cesky Fousek is a Czech gun dog. It is a versatile breed that is thought to be ancient; however standards for the breed weren’t developed until the 1900s. In the 1920s the breed nearly became extinct, but breeding with German Wirehaired Pointers saved it from extinction.
The breed stands 24 to 26 inches tall and weighs 62 to 75 pounds. Its coat is wirehaired and it comes with the typical beard and mustache commonly seen in wirehaired breeds. The Cesky Fousek has a double coat, with a bristly outer coat which is 1 to 3 inches in length and a soft, thick undercoat. Its coat tends to be liver or liver and white in color. The breed has amber-colored, almond-shaped eyes.
