The Chart Polski probably originated from a cross between the Asian sighthounds of the Salkui genus and domestic hunting dogs in Poland. The breed has existed almost unchanged for many centuries, although some crosses occurred in the 19th century. Since the 13th century it has had almost the same characteristics as today. He used to be a popular dog among the nobility. That is why he appeared frequently in literature, especially hunting literature, and in numerous paintings.

In Poland, he used to be used as a hunting dog for foxes, deer and even wolves, as he is one of the fastest land mammals. Even today you can see from its strong musculature and strong jaw that it was used for hunting in Poland’s harsh climate.
After almost completely disappearing during World War II and only a few dogs surviving, the Chart Polski has grown in popularity since the 1970s.
