The Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound or Bosanski Oštrodlaki Gonič, also called the Barak, is a hunting dog breed developed in Bosnia. The breed is a scenthound, originally used to hunt large game. The “Bosanski Oštrodlaki Gonič’s” name is translated as coarse-haired, broken-haired, and rough-haired (among others), and refers to the texture of the shaggy coat (usually called broken-haired or hard in English.)
The former name given to the Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound was Illyrian Hound, referring to a pre-Slavic people of the area. Today’s breed is descended from indigenous dog types, crossed with an Italian gun dog in the 1890s. “Local hunters, wanting to produce an efficient scent hound, developed this breed in the nineteenth century, using the available stock of dogs.” The early type of today’s smaller Istrian Shorthaired Hound may also have contributed to the Bosnian Coarse Haired Hound.Read More...
