Cesky Terrier

Cesky Terrier

Created in 1948 by a Czech breeder named František Horák, the Cesky was a cross between a Sealyham Terrier and a Scottish Terrier. They are one of the six rarest dog breeds in the world. Cesky Terriers are muscular and short-legged, typically standing no taller than 13 inches. True to Terrier fashion, they love to dig and chase small animals- so a secure yard and fence is recommended for this lively breed. They are fairly active and should receive daily physical activity to avoid destructive behaviour.

 

Common Health Conditions

  • Scottie Cramp causes spasms in the legs, especially after exercise or excitement. This is a disease passed down from Scottish Terriers which is not painful or life threatening but is to do with a lack of serotonin.
  • All terrier breeds have problems with their skin, namely chronic allergies that cause itching and scratching
  • Mitral valve insufficiency is the most common of the acquired cardiac diseases in older dogs, affecting over 1/3 of dogs older than 10 years. However, in certain breeds, mitral valve insufficiency develops at a younger age, due to an inherited predisposition for the disorder.
