Cesky fousek are also called the Bohemian wire-haired pointing griffon.

Bohemia is one of the traditional lands of the Czechs. It is where Prague is located.  The other two are Moravia and the Czech part of Silesia.

This is the HPR of the Czechs, and it is one of the ancestors of the other gun dog breed from the former Czechoslovakia, the Slovak rough-haired pointer, which is the same color as the Weimaraner.

The only thing that could be more unusual is if they were shooting these peafowl off the back of an elephant.
