Posavac Hound |Croatia|

Posavac Hound |Croatia|

The Posavac Hound is one of Croatia’s ancient hound breeds. Its name loosely means “hound from the Sava Valley,” since the densely forested Sava Valley in central Croatia is where the breed originated. Frescoes in the Chapel of St. Mary, Beram, near the west coast city of Pazin, date to 1474, and depict hounds of similar appearance to the modern Posavac. Historians speculate that these were its ancestors. Hounds from the Sava Valley were prized throughout Croatia and were originally called Boskini; they were not officially called Posavac until 1969. These are good scent hounds used to hunt hare and fox.
