History

The Slovakian Wirehaired Pointers is a relatively new breed. It dates back to the end of the decade of 1950, in Czechoslovakia after World War II and is believed to have been developed using the Weimaraner, the German Wirehaired Pointer and the Český fousek.

At any given time, the Slovaks who developed the breed asked the Club Weimaraner from Germany to recognize this dog under the name of Rough-haired Weimaraner, but the request was rejected.

The resulting dog is a true wonder, that combines the talents of a hunting dog (on the plains, in the woods and in the water), a working dog and a companion dog. Adapts to all climates.
