History of the breed

Originally from the former Czechoslovakia , the Bearded Czech was commonly encountered there until the outbreak of the First World War. The breed was even known since the Middle Ages. She was on the verge of extinction as a result of the War of 14-18 , but a handful of passionate breeders have managed to retain enough dogs to preserve her and contribute to her rebirth.
