Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer

Breed History / Description

The breed was recognised by the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI), the international canine body in 1983, so this is a very modern breed. The breed was developed by crossing the Czech Pointer with a German Wire Haired Pointer. To this combination was added Weimaraner blood, resulting in a wire coated dog with the silver grey Weimaraner colouring. A few were imported into the UK by working gundog enthusiasts in the early years of the 21st Century.
