The Prague Ratter (Pražský Krysarík) used to grace the Royal Palaces and were present at Royal Banquets in the Middle Ages. They have not been internationally recognized and are rarely seen outside of the Czech Republic. This small dog symbolized the independence of Czech lands (Bohemia) and Sovereignty of the Czech nation. This purely Czech breed can be traced back to the early history of the Czech lands (Bohemia). Science publicist Emil Jech from Roztoky, near Prague, discovered and confirmed the existence of the Prague Ratter and brought forward indisputable evidence this breed was around during Bohemian Prince Vladislav II's time. Polish chronicler Galla Anonym wrote that Polish King Boleslav II The Brave (1058 -1080) became fond of the Ratter. He had two that came from Bohemia (the Czech lands). Jules Michelet mentioned in his work "Histoire de France" three ratting dogs came from the Czech lands. He clearly talks about a living gift which the Czech king Karel IV (who also bore the title of Emperor of Rome) presented to the French king Charles V during his visit to France in 1377. King Vaclav IV (1378 - 1419) it has been said, used to take his favorite Ratter to the "Ukrale Brabantskeho" pub he frequently visited. Early history of the Czech lands (Bohemia) the Ratter adorned the courts of Czech princes and kings and was often given as a gift to other European rulers. From the royal palaces they went to other affluent members of society and then to ordinary citizens.
This breed is lively, active and playful who loves to cuddle and makes a great family pet.
