This Czech native dog breed is a cross between a Scottish Terrier and a Sealyham Terrier. He was created to hunt vermin, but with his loving personality, moderate exercise needs, and small size, he makes a great companion dog too.

The result of a cross between a Scottish Terrier and a Sealyham Terrier — with the goal of creating a dog that could go after vermin without getting stuck in their dens — the Cesky (pronounced chess-key) was created in 1948 in what was then Czechoslovakia.
Mellower than most terriers, the Cesky needs moderate amounts of exercise. And unlike many terriers, he has the advantage of a soft coat that can be trimmed with clippers rather than requiring hand-stripping (plucking dead hairs by hand).
Loving and devoted, he's also active enough to compete in earthdog trials, agility, obedience, and tracking. The Cesky is also a successful therapy dog. He gets along well with children and other pets, especially if he's raised with them.
