Cesky Fousek Breed Appearance
The Český Fousek has a very distinct look, descended from ancient wire-haired Pointers. It has a double coat consisting of a short, soft, dense undercoat and a long, course and wiry outer coat, each of which ranges between shades of brown and gray. It has a noble, powerful and muscular look that implies its strength, endurance and versatility whether in fields, woods, or water. Its head is long and somewhat narrow with a muzzle longer than the skull that slightly tapers to a broad, dark brown nose. They posses deep-set, football-shaped eyes that are amber to dark brown in color and high-set, tapered, folded ears. They have straight front legs and well-muscled shoulders that help form a slight slope toward the angled hindquarters, terminating in a tail that is generally docked to 3/5 of its natural length. Their chests are deep and well-developed and even stick out if looking from the side. They have compact but well-arched toes complete with webbing to help them swim.
