    Istrian Shorthaired Hound |Croatia|

    Istrian Shorthaired Hound |Croatia|

    Hounds of similar appearance to the Istrian Shorthaired Hound appear in art as far back as the fifteenth century, so historians believe that this is a very ancient breed, although no actual records exist. The Istrian is considered to be the oldest hound breed in the Balkan region, and gave rise to the slightly larger, wire-coated Istrian Coarse-haired Hound. Both types were prized for their hunting skills on hare, fox, and rabbit, and both are still used for hunting today. They have a good, solid, calm temperament, but they can be prone to barking.
