More details about the Wirehaired Slovakian Pointer

Wirehaired Slovakian Pointer: Origins and history

This hunting dog breed was established during the 1950’s by crossing German Wirehaired Pointers, Weimaraners, and the Cesky Fousek (also known as the Bohemian Wirehaired Pointing Griffon). The breed was developed by Kolomon Slimak, who required a breed with great stamina, who would be able to track game, point and retrieve on both land and in water. The resulting Slovakian Rough-haired Pointer certainly meets this criteria with a range of prey birds, hares and even deer.
