Polish Greyhound

The Polish Greyhound born to hunt, not only of the hare, the bustard and the fox, but also the wolf.

Content

History

The “Polish Greyhound” is a very ancient race. In the chronicles of Galla Anonymous there are references to the royal court's expenses in maintaining the Greyhounds. According to an old Polish dictionary, in the 13th century there were more than 300 terms to refer to Greyhounds, which shows that in Poland at that time they were known and popular animals.

The first description of hunting with Greyhounds is located in Myślistwie z ogary (Hunting with stallions), of Jan Ostroróg, and the first description of a Greyhound data of 1600 (A. Gostomski, Equestrian farm). Another description of hunting with Greyhounds found in the poem The fighter de Tomasz Bielawski, published in 1595.

Last, “Nature” of the 13 in July of 1895, describing the visit of Grand Duke Nicolas to a dog show in Tuilleries, gives the following information about the Polish Greyhound, prince's property: “These Greyhounds shorthair come from Poland, from where they entered Russia in large numbers with the expedition of Prince Dimitri in 1505; are bigger than Sighthounds, but less delicate, and her hair is longer”.

All these data confirm that the Polish Greyhound was present in the Polish lands before the Borzoi – Russian Hound for hunting and the “Greyhound”. The Polish Greyhound has many features in common with the Saluki, like its fur, that is not found in others Short-haired Sighthounds nor in the Borzoi. The coats like dominoes, flame black or tricolor are also common in the Saluki. At the same time, the Polish Greyhound does not have the black color without fire with white variants, so frequent in the “Greyhound”.

The Greyhounds spread throughout Europe thanks to the migrations of Celtic tribes. The Celts valued hunting on horseback with Greyhounds as a sport and its ouertragoi (in latin transcription – contract), originating from Asia, they became the ancestor of most European races of Greyhounds.

It is also believed that Polish Greyhound descends directly from the Asian type. While the English selected their Greyhounds for the speed with which they could hunt hares in a relatively limited space, in central europe, in the great flat areas of Poland at that time, in a dry and harsh climate, the Greyhounds Asians evolved into larger dogs, robust and strong, used to hunt any type of game, including foxes and wolves.

The Greyhounds Asians also came to our area with the nomadic Scythian tribes. Written sources show that, in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Polish Greyhound original crossed with other Greyhounds, as the Irish wolfhound.

The heyday of Polish Greyhound irretrievably happened at the end of the 19th century, when - as a result of the progressive divisions of the land- the search for game began to be hampered by fences. The population of Polish Greyhound was significantly reduced in not very numerous kennels of tradition-loving nobility, especially in southern Poland, in Podolia and Ukraine. Until World War II, the Greyhounds hunted in the voivodeship of Kielce, in the estate of the lords Niemojewski – Oleszno Kielecki. Oleszno Kieleckie It was the last bastion of Polish Greyhound.

The Second World War and the harsh postwar years caused the almost total extinction of these beautiful dogs. The fate of this breed after the war was turbulent and complicated. In southern areas of Poland, dogs from scattered kennels used to fall into the hands of poachers, which is why, as outlaws, they were viciously exterminated by hunters, forest guards and militiamen. In that moment all that was “manorial” was methodically destroyed. Nonetheless, some Polish Greyhound survived, and the selection was carried out according to the speed, agility and “passivity” (skill in catching). That skill in the capture allowed to keep the race pure.

Over the years 70, a group of enthusiasts strove to save and restore the breed. In 1981 a registration book was opened for the Polish Greyhound. In 1989 the breed was officially recognized by the FCI as the fourth Polish breed.

Character and skills

The Pug is particularly a dog “with sense of humor”, exhibiting very human facial expressions given its bone structure. Due to its striking appearance, some people tend to think that the characteristics of the Pug are the result of genetic manipulation or inbreeding.. But, the characteristics of the Pug are similar in the last five hundred years, period in which Europeans began it importing from China.

    The Pug's tail has a characteristic spiral or letter shape “Q”. This variation in the way of the tail is due to the vertebrae in this portion of the column are actually hemivertebra. In some few puppies, This alteration of the shape can be extended to the rest of the column and the animal presents spina bifida.. The spine of the animal must feel before purchasing to avoid choosing a sick puppy. An animal that suffers from this malformation should not be reproduced in order to not pass this problem to their offspring.

    Given the shape of the skull, the eyes of the Pug have a bouncy and lively appearance.

    From France, the Poodle is a descendant of Barbet, original German swamp; and in the middle ages, He was assigned to tumble as duck or goose birds hunting, so it was selected for characteristics such as its adaptability to boggy terrain and its resistance to water, What makes this breed, along with others are called water dogs.

    From the 16th century, the poodles began to be famous for her beauty and intelligence, especially in various circus performances and works of art by various authors as Albrecht Dürer and Francisco de Goya. In the times of Louis XVI of France, their presence in the French court was already very common..

    Medium Poodle (or standard):

    This type of poodle is perhaps, the less well known, and at the same time the more quiet. Measures of 36 to 44 Cross cm, and as in all sizes, just accept the plain colors in fur. The weight is commensurate with its size.

    Miniature Poodle:

    In the exhibitions held under the rules of the FCI, copies of black, White and Brown are judged in the same group to obtain the CACIB. The same applies to copies of grey, Apricot and Red; the best of each of these groups becomes a final judgment to determine the best copy of the variety.

    Apart from the common poodle, There is also the variety Cordelé, taking this more curly hair and being able to display in the form of strings as the Puli.

    Health Poodles

    Not all of these diseases affect standard poodles, but the conditions that can generally occur in poodles include the following:

    Addison's disease and Cushing's syndrome are two sides of the same coin. In dogs with Addison's disease, the adrenal glands produce insufficient amount of the hormone cortisol. Dogs become lethargic, intolerant and depressed stress, and may have digestive problems. Some dogs may have an acute crisis, requiring hospitalization. The lifelong treatment involves the administration of drugs.

    In dogs with Cushing's syndrome, the adrenal glands produce too much cortisol. Symptoms include weight gain, gasps, excessive thirst and hunger, bladder infections and urinating in the house but the dog has been previously trained. Cushing's disease is usually controlled with medication for life, but sometimes surgery is necessary.

    Another hormonal problem seen in poodles is hypothyroidism (An inappropriate thyroid hormone). Symptoms include weight gain, loss of hair, lack of resistance to disease, excessive hunger and heat seeking. Normally supplements prescribed thyroid hormone to control the condition.

    Progressive retinal atrophy (ARP) is an eye disease that can eventually lead hereditary blindness. Standard other potential eye problems in poodles and toy are cataracts and glaucoma. Poodles can also be affected by von Willebrand's disease (a disorder of blood clotting).

    Although all Poodles, regardless of size, They are the same “race”, They not all have the same health problems. Poodles toy and miniature poodles share many common health problems for smaller breeds of dogs, as kneecaps that easily out of place (You dislocated kneecaps), breathing difficulties caused by a collapse of the trachea and dental problems due to the overcrowding of teeth within their small mouths.

    The Toy Poodles can also suffer Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease, which causes a reduction of the blood supply to the head of the bone of the thigh, causing degradation. The first sign of this disease is lameness, that usually appears when the puppy has to 4 to 6 months of age. Treatment is surgical, after which the puppy can lead a relatively normal life apart from a greater chance of developing arthritis.

    Standard Poodles, like many large breeds deep chest, They have an increased risk of swelling, also known as gastric dilation volvulus, a life-threatening condition in which the stomach twists on itself, trapping air inside. Swell dogs require immediate veterinary care and, usually, surgery to correct the problem. Since most dogs that swell once swell again, the surgeon may also recommend a procedure known as “turn of the stomach” or gastropexia, as a preventive measure.

    A skin problem that can affect the toy poodles and standard is the sebaceous adenitis, an inflammation of the sebaceous glands that causes hair loss and skin problems. It can be diagnosed with a skin biopsy, but the effectiveness of treatment varies.

    Hip dysplasia is an orthopedic problem beginning at puppyhood. Is a malformation and poor fit of the joint of the ball and socket hip. It may be a minor problem or life-altering disability. Treatment can range from something as simple as daily medication to major surgery., even a hip replacement.

    Last, Standard Poodles have a higher incidence of certain cancers, including insulinoma and hemangiosarcoma, compared to some other breeds.

    Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it can be difficult to predict whether an animal will be free of these diseases, so it is necessary to find a reputable breeder who commit to raise healthier animals possible. Must be able to produce an independent certification that the parents of the dog (and grandparents, etc.) have been screened for these defects and considered healthy for breeding. That's where health records come in..

    Careful breeders screen their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest and best looking dogs, but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good husbandry practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life.

    It is often said that they have a human intelligence, an incredible cunning that amazes its owners. Of course, smart dogs can be tricky. They learn fast, both the bad and good habits

    Basics of grooming poodles

    The toilet is an important consideration in Poodles. Fine and curly coat that worked well when the Poodle spent his time in the water needs to be trimmed regularly, normally every 6 u 8 weeks, depending on the preferences of its owner.

    While, the origins of the breed are somewhat obscure, What if one certainty is that the history of these dogs is very old.
    A probable reference to Portuguese Water Dog It is found in the text of a monk, that in 1297 described the rescue of a sailor carried out by a dog with similar characteristics to the breed we are talking about... "long, black hair, cut up the first rib, and with a tuft at the tip of the tail“.

    The common standard of shearing for these dogs, Mark to be as the description of the monk. As well, a photo of early 19th century, It represents the arrival of the King of Portugal to the beach of Bethlehem, shows a water dog, swim to the boat of the King.

    The closest relatives of the Portuguese Water Dog are Kerry Blue Terrier, the Barbet and the Poodle standard.

    Originally, water dogs – excellent swimmer is- they were used by the Portuguese fishermen in their boats as helpers in varied tasks, how to be… herding the fish into the nets, recovery of objects fell into the water, carrying messages between ships or between Earth and the sea, among others.

    The writer Raul Brandão, in his book the fisherman (1932), It describes the activity of a fishing boat in Olhao, and much of its description was based on these dogs and their marine skills.

    From the 20th century with the advancement of new technologies both in fishing and in communication, the work that was usually done by dogs gradually was replaced, and there was no need to travel with dogs on board. Like everything else in life, progress has its 'pros' and its 'cons', in the decade of 1930 the number of specimens of the breed decreased greatly and the few specimens that survived were found on the Algarve coast.

    The 1934 It was a crucial year for the subsistence of this breed, and perhaps the starting point of the recovery of the Portuguese Water Dog was the Lisbon Exhibition in 1934, under the direction of Frederick Pinto Soares. here enters the story, Vasco Bensaude, a wealthy businessman who lived in the Azores Islands, had attended this canine event, because he was also dedicated to breeding water dogs.

Two specimens found in the Algarve joined his Kennel, Nero, a male of curly hair and Venesa, a female of wavy hair. In 1937, born the first litter (by Leon and Dina).
