Polish Hounds are powerful dogs with an extraordinary nose and great perseverance that is much appreciated by Polish hunters. They use their deep, melodic voice to keep in touch on the hunt.
Rather heavy, nobly chiseled, from the side looking like a medium-length rectangle.
Long, broad, muscular back, broad, level croup, ample, broad ribcage of proportionate depth.
Tan on the head, save the sides of the skull, a little darker on the ears, tan on limbs, sterna region and thighs. Black or dark gray, almost black, on the body.
Set low, fairly long, hanging freely, slightly rounded at the tips.
Set rather low, thick, covered in long hair on the underside, reaching below the hock.
Medium length, thick, dense undercoat, a little longer on the back, on the rear of the hind legs and the lower part of the tail.
This old breed of hound was close to disappearing until the stock was revitalized with dogs from the east. The F.C.I. recognized the breed in 1966.Medium-sized, strongly built and compact, Polish Hounds have powerful, relatively massive bones and well proportioned legs. Overall, dogs of this breed exude power and stamina rather than speed. On the trail, they have a clear, sonorous voice of changeable pitch, which is generally higher in females.
