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 Polish Greyhound is a quiet dog, sober and brave. Show distance to strangers, while towards his own family he is very attached and affectionate. Raised together with a cat, you can live with him at home, but if you see a cat outside, your hunting instincts will kick in.

    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.

    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. He was so impressed with the Portuguese Water Dog What, decided to buy four specimens and thus start a careful breeding program in his hatchery, Algarbiorum. Y, what he achieved with the support of two loving friends in the race, Pinto Soares and Fernandes Marques.

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).
