About Cesky Fousek New Zealand
The Cesky Fousek breed is relatively new to New Zealand, and has a small population. The first individual, Cita od Tyrse (AKA Kaca) was imported by Jake Overton and arrived in New Zealand on 31 July 2003. Between 2003 and 2010, Jake Overton bred dogs to generate enough people and dogs to form Cesky Fousek New Zealand (CFNZ) to further the Cesky Fousek breed within New Zealand.
Cesky Fousek New Zealand is an incorporated society of enthusiastic hunters who are dedicated to maintaining and improving the Cesky Fousek as a premier hunting dog in New Zealand. The CFNZ executive committee are committed to this goal through improved breeding and testing of the Cesky Fousek in New Zealand. You can read more about our philosophy here: Purpose and Aims.
We are looking for keen hunters who need a great versatile hunting dog. Owners need to do enough hunting to justify having a good hunting dog. This is both because a dog will not develop as a hunting dog without sufficient hunting, and also because there is little point in having a good hunting dog unless it is being hunted. Just as we benefit from the efforts of others in the past, so must we contribute to the dogs of our sons and daughters and those that follow.
There is no obligation to join CFNZ, but all fousek owners are welcome to be members and contribute to decisions: CFNZ Membership Form.
