Cesky Terrier Puppies
Description: The Cesky Terrier is a small but sturdy, rectangular terrier with short legs, drop-ears, long coat and a big heart. They are muscular dogs, slightly longer than they are tall. They have long heads that have a blunt nose and deep set eyes. Its feet are large and its coat is thick and silky. This breed can be either bluish grey or chocolate brown in color. Cesky Terriers carry the fading gene, found in few other breeds, such as the Bearded Collie. The fading gene is a gene that causes the dog's hair to fade as it grows, much like the graying of people hair as they get older. On blue dogs, the skin is grey and on brown dogs the skin is tan. As the blue dogs get older their fur will turn more grayish, while as the brown terriers will turn a light brown coffee color. The face is a forest of hair, and in some places is curly. Facial hair on this breed is not clipped, and gives the terrier the look for long bushy eyebrows and beard. Calm, responsive and devoted, the Cesky Terrier makes a wonderful family pet in a wide range of living situations. Cesky Terriers get along well with people of all ages and are usually good with other pets as well. They are often easy going and easy to take care of. The Cesky is less aggressive and independent, and more eager to please than the typical terrier. They are said to be much more mild than regular terriers. They are usually patient, gentle, and good with anyone. They are also very adaptable.
Other Names: Czech Terrier, Bohemian Terrier, Ceskỳ Teriér
Height: 10 - 14
(ranging from silver to dark charcoal). Some are a uniform color, while others
have lighter markings (pale gray, yellow or cream) on the face and extremities.
Some white markings are permissible, but the basic color must predominate. Ceskys
contain the fading gene, which lightens their fur color as the years go by.
Puppies born black will lighten over time, turning blue to gray. This process
can take up to 3 years. Light coffee-brown (with puppies born chocolate brown)
is possible, but this color is extremely rare.
Terriers are a balanced, non-aggressive, pleasant and cheerful companion, who
is anxious to please and easy to train. The Cesky can be somewhat reserved towards
strangers, but is devoted and loving with their family and those they know.
The Cesky is calm and has a kind disposition. With hunting animals low to the
ground they can be feisty, persistent and stubborn. They are fearless towards
bigger animals. They make good family pets as they are good with children and
most other animals. They are patient, mild and gentle.
Watch-dog: Very High.
Like any terrier, Ceskys are very alert of their surroundings and will let you
Care and Exercise:
Brushing/combing two times a week. Clipping every 6-8 weeks. Cesky
Terriers are non-shedding, so regular grooming is required to keep the coat
mat-free. Clean the corner of the eyes frequently and remove excess hair from
the ear canal during bi-monthly grooming/clipping session. Trim hair between
foot pads and keep nails clipped regularly. Ceskys regularly have their fur
clipped on the upper body, while the lower and chest is left as it is. The eyebrows
and beard are also left as they are. Because they love food, exercise is helpful
to maintain a healthy weight. However exercise requirements are easily met with
a daily walk or game of fetch.
Activity: Medium. Active
and playful outdoors, mellow and quiet in the house.
Health Issues: Usually very healthy and robust. Because of the Scottie in it's background, a condition known as Scottie Cramp is possible, but not prevalent in the breed.
Life Span: 10 - 14
