    Polish Hound |Poland|

    Hounds are first mentioned in Poland in the fourteenth century. They were used by the aristocracy to hunt large and small game. Polish Hounds are described as being mostly black and tan and having a deep, rich bark when on the hunt. In the 1600s, Poland began several centuries of political turmoil, which affected the dogs’ bloodline: many kennels were lost, and the breed was not kept pure. By the twentieth century, the original Polish Hound had almost disappeared. The breed was re-established in 1959 by hunt enthusiast Colonel Peter Kartawik based largely on three dogs: Storm, Zorka, and Chita. Polish Hounds have wonderful temperaments, but are inclined to be independent and noisy.
