The Český Fousek is a Czech breed of versatile gun dog.[1][2] They are wirehaired, and have the beard and moustache ("facial furnishings") common to the wirehaired breeds. There is a dramatic difference in size between the females and males of this breed. The Český Fousek written standards were first established in the nineteenth century. The breed nearly became extinct in the 1920s, and was saved by breeding with Stichelhaars.

The Český Fousek was used in the creation of the foundation stock of the Slovak Rough-haired Pointer.[3][4]


A medium-sized breed with a coarse coat, the Český Fousek is an athletically built dog with a wiry, muscular body. Their most noticeable trait is their distinguishing facial fur. Their soft, bushy eyebrows, mustache, and beard are what make them so recognizable. Their velvety ears hang loosely to the side of their face, while their endearing almond-shaped eyes are deep-set, and can be amber or brown color.


Mid-sized dog. Males height 60–66 centimetres (24–26 in), females 58–62 centimetres (23–24 in). Weight for males 28–34 kilograms (62–75 lb), females 22–28 kilograms (49–62 lb).


Hunting dogs able to adapt to any sort of terrain and type of hunting. Can be used for upland and waterfowl hunting, as well as tracking large game. Fantastic family dog as well as an excellent hunting dog.
