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.

Polish Hounds probably have German and Austrian ancestors, but most of the population remains in Poland.
