Serbian Tricolor Hounds are certainly very appealing dogs. Medium-sized and solidly built, they are prized for their even temper, vivacity and energy. Just like their Balkan cousins, they are devoted, friendly, self-assured and remarkably tenacious.
Narrow skull, diverging lines of skull and muzzle.
Rectangular, length to height ratio 11/10.
Deep red or fox red, with black mantle or saddle, which may extend to the head, possibly with black markings on the temples.
Set high, medium length, hanging, close to the cheeks, medium-sized.
Slightly curved upward, carried below the topline, covered with abundant hair.
Short, abundant, glossy topcoat, a little thick, lying well over the entire body, covering fairly well developed undercoat.
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.
