Geschichte: Prager Rattler
Historically, this breed has been
known since the remote past of the Czech state. Because of its small size,
quick movement and highly developed sense of smell it was used for
killing rats (which gave it the name "Krysa?ík" = Ratter). This quality
was gained during its long historical development. This small active dog
was often seen at aristocratic feasts of Czech kings at the Prague castle.
It adorned courts of Bohemian aristocracy and as a gift from Bohemian
kings it came to other European rulers and later to the ordinary citizens.
The search of historical facts resulted in proofs that this breed really is
of Bohemian origin and can be traced to the early history of the Czech
nation. In 1980 its regeneration successfully started. Pražský krysa?ík is
again a favourite pet that lives as a family dog and is becoming popular
also in many other countries worldwide.
