Slovakian Chuvach: Origins and history

This hardy breed originates from the mountains of Slovakia, where it was used to herd and guard farmers’ livestock, pull heavy carts, and act as a companion to the whole family. The breed itself dates back to the 17th century, and although the Slovensky’s origins aren’t certain, most Slovakians believe that the breed descended from Arctic wolves.
