Chart Polskis are self-assured, confident, reserved and courageous animals. Fast, hardy and very deft during the chase, they react swiftly when needed. But what stays with you from that first meeting are their expressive eyes, alert and penetrating, which make a major contribution to their overall appearance.

While the existence of Chart Polskis in Poland has been confirmed all the way back to the 13th century, the breed is most likely descended from Saluki-type Asian sighthounds. The claim that the breed is the result of a cross between a Greyhound and a Borzoi is unfounded. The breed was often mentioned in texts about dogs, with very homogeneous illustrations.This Polish breed has a strong frame and short-coupled body, with clear muscles and powerful jaws, suited to the tough Polish climate. Chart Polskis had to wait until the Iron Curtain fell before securing recognition by the F.C.I. in 1989.

Chart Polskis are big, powerful, muscular dogs that are much stronger and less fine than other shortcoated sighthounds.
