Breed Name: Chart Polski


History

Known for their extreme sight hound hunting talent, the Chart Polski was bred for hunting rabbits, fox, wolves and deer in the early 1600s. Unaware of the exact bloodlines that created the Chart Polski, we do know that they were around for hundreds of years and til this day remain a very popular breed.

Appearance

Built tall, long and lean, both males and females measure 27-32 inches in height and weigh between 65-95 pounds in weight. This breed has a very small, wedge shaped head with a severe scissor bite. Their two triangular ears are folded 3/4 of the way to their head and sit firmly sticking outwards. This breed carries a very long and lean tail and a coat that is short however can be thicker in the winter months and is available in tan and white or black and white.

Temperament

An excellent addition to any family with children of all ages and the elderly, however not recommended for households with any other pets due to this breed being an eager sight-hound. This breed is a fantastic hunter, so when outside make sure to keep a harness and leash on him or her or be within a tall, safe, fenced in yard that is installed properly. This breed will absolutely take off running once spotting a rabbit or squirrel. The Chart Polski is a wonderful listener, very calm and quiet when inside and extremely gentle. This breed requires a confident owner who only uses positive reinforcement training methods. This breed would do best in a county living environment but will do alright in an apartment if exercised enough with time outdoors.

Grooming

Daily brushing and bathing when needed. Daily shedding and worse when seasons change.

Special Notes

Please note this breed is prone to dangerous health risks and proper education of these risks are highly recommended prior to adding one to your family to ensure proper knowledge of this breed and what to look for. Please fully educate yourself about the Chart Polski prior to adding one to your family to ensure you are able to make a life long commitment to your new addition. Do not add one to your home unless you are able to meet the care and requirements of the breed and care physically and financially for the life of the pet. All dogs originate from wolves (Canis Lupus). Each breed of dog was originally created by mixing different breeds together in an effort to bring forth certain characteristics. Once a breeder has created acceptable “breed characteristics” within their bloodline and these “breed characteristics” have shown to be reliably reproduced in the offspring for three (3) generations, the bloodline may be upgraded from the category of “foundation stock” to “pure-bred”. The same “pure-bred” breed standards vary from different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeders. Dog DNA testing companies can have accurate results for a specific bloodline of a small colony of dogs. However, there are tens of thousands of different bloodlines in the world which have not yet been tested for marker baseline results by Dog DNA testing companies as of 2017. For this reason Dog DNA testing companies do not guarantee the 100% accuracy of their breed lineage results and will also show different marker results for the same pure-bred breed in different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeders.
