Country of Origin: Poland
Polish Ogar is the hero of the first dog related written work called "Myślistwo z ogary"-"Hunting with hound dogs" by Jan Ostroróg from 1608. There is nothing in the book about what he looked like at that time, but a lot about his utility. Hound dogs were used in Poland to hunt hares, foxes and wild boars. Usually they were black and tan dogs but not only. All types of hound dogs inhabiting Poland had one in common: they trailed the prey with a great stubbornness, "singing" - main characteristic of the breed is their melodious voice. Until the 19th century the breed was very differentiated. At the end of the 19th century almost extinct. After the Second World War two Colonels - Pawlusiewicz and Kartawik made an attempt to restore the breed. Kartawik's line was named Ogar Polski, while Pawlusiewicz's dogs are now called Gończy polski. Breed standard was created in 1966 and the breed recognized by FCI.
