The Gończy Polski, sometimes translated as the Polish Hunting Dog, is a breed of scent hound originating in Poland.


The Gończy Polski is a medium-sized hound, usually black and tan in colour. A smaller variety of the more common Polish Hound, it almost became extinct after the Second World War and only became known in the West after the fall of Communism.[1][2][3]
