Prazsky Krysarik


The Prazsky Krysarik is a small dog breed that originated in the Czech Republic. The breed was developed in the 20th century and is named after the Prague Pied Piper, a legendary figure in Czech folklore. The Prazsky Krysarik was created by crossing several small dog breeds, including the Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher.

The Prazsky Krysarik was originally bred as a companion dog, but was later also used to hunt rats and mice. The breed has been recognized by the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) since the 1980s and is now popular all over the world.


The Prazsky Krysarik is a lively, intelligent and affectionate dog. The breed is known for its loyalty and close bond with its owner. Prazsky Krysariks are also watchful dogs and often bark to alert their owner to potential intruders.

Although small, Prazsky Krysariks have a lot of energy and need regular exercise. They are easy to train and get along well with children and other pets.


In general, Prazsky Krysariks are healthy dogs with an average lifespan of 12-14 years. However, as with many small dog breeds, they can be prone to certain health problems, including dental issues and patellar luxation (kneecap out of place). It's important to regularly monitor your Prazsky Krysarik's health through vet visits and a healthy diet.


Prazsky Krysariks are relatively easy to care for. Their short coat doesn't need much grooming, but regular brushing can help remove dead hair and keep their coat healthy. As mentioned earlier, they need regular exercise and are usually content with a walk around the neighborhood or in the yard.

Be sure to train and socialize your Prazsky Krysarik from a young age to ensure they are well behaved and comfortable in a variety of situations. Give them plenty of love and attention too, as Prazsky Krysariks are very affectionate dogs and love to be around their owners.
