The Cesky Terrier (prounounced ches-key ? terrier) is also known as the Bohemian
Terrier and has a wavy, soft, shiny coat. Puppies are generally born black and adult
dogs are various shades of gray-blue with tan, gray, white, or yellow furnishings.
The skin pigment is generally gray for blue-gray dogs and flesh-colored for brown
dogs. When showing the dogs, they can have white on their collars and tail tips.
Yellow and grey markings are also allowed on the cheeks, muzzle, neck, breast, lower
legs, and tail. The arched skull is long but narrow with a well-defined stop. Cesky
Terriers have a distinct bushy beard, moustache and eyebrows. The deep set eyes
should be medium sized. They should also be brown on gray-blue dogs and yellow on
brown dogs. The triangular, high set ears are also medium sized and pendant. The
nose and lips should be black in blue-grey dogs and liver in brown dogs. Their teeth
should meet in a scissor-like bite. The slightly arched neck should be muscular
with loose skin at the throat and merge into well-laid back shoulders. The back
should be level with a slight rise above broad loins and the ribs should be well-sprung.
The straight forelegs should be muscular and the hindlegs have strong upper thighs
and a high-set, strongly developed hock. The round feet should be arched and well
padded. Removing dewclaws are optional. The undocked, medium-length tail is carried
slightly upwards and reaches the hocks.
