Brief historical summary

The tricoloured scent hound has the same origins as the other Balkan scent hounds. In 1946 the theory that this breed was merely a variety of the Serbian scent hound was refuted ; it was granted breed status and a first standard was drawn up. This breed was shown to cynological circles at the Belgrade International Dog Show on June 7th and 8th 1950. The F.C.I. recognised the breed and published the standard for the tricoloured Yugoslav scent hound on July 25th 1961.
