Serbian Tricolor Hounds share a common heritage with other Balkan hounds. In 1946, they were officially recognized as a breed in their own right rather than simply a variety of the Serbian Hound. They were first shown as such at the International Dog Show in Belgrade in June 1950. The F.C.I. recognized the breed as the Yugoslavian Tricolor Hound in 1961, although its name was changed after the reorganization of that country.

Did you know ?

Although controlled breeding goes back a long way, the breed remains rare outside of Serbia, where it has an outstanding reputation as a hunter of hares and foxes.
