History of the breed

Race of ancient origin, the Polish Greyhound is present in Poland since at least the 13th century. He is said to be descended from Asiatic Saluki-type Greyhounds and would have received contributions from Borzoi and Greyhound. Greyhound breeders Poles have preserved its characteristic long enough and its standards have remained unchanged until the end of the 19th century. The Polish Greyhound breed was provisionally recognized by the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) on June 13, 1989, then definitively on March 1, 2001. Its official FCI standard in force was published on October 1, 1999.
