Posavatz Hound

About the Posavatz Hound

Posavatz, the scenthound from the Save Valley, is an old hound breed, which descends from a type of the “Illyrischen Hound of Red Colour with markings”. Docile, very attached to their owner and good natured, Posavatz Hounds are reasonably lively dogs that love to hunt.

They are very hardy scenthounds that specialise in hares and foxes, although they can also be used as bloodhounds. Their robust build makes them very well suited to the dense underbrush of the Sava river basin.
