The Czesky or Bohemian Terrier is a short-legged terrier, little known outside its native home of the Czech Republic. It was developed in the middle of this century by crossing the Scottish, Sealyham, and possibly other terriers. The result is a tough, sturdy dog that will go to ground after quarry, and is an excellent ratter and guard. As well as being a fine working terrier, the Czesky's equable temperament also makes it a good children's companion. It requires plenty of exercise and expert clipping for the show ring, although pet owners could probably get away with the occasional visit to the grooming parlor and a good daily brushing.
