The Montenegrin’s kinship with other Balkan hounds is undisputable. In the past, it was sometimes known as the Black Hound. The F.C.I. officially recognized the breed in May 1969, 45 years after the standard was first published.

Did you know ?

The first standard was published back in 1924, when the breed was still known as the Yugoslavian Mountain Hound. In 1997, the F.C.I. recognized the breed’s new name after the breakup of the Yugoslav state.
