First registered by the F.C.I. in June 1965 as the Illyrian Hound, the breed now sports a new name, the Bosnian Coarse-haired Hound - Barak, although the standard is otherwise virtually the same.They are robust dogs with long, shaggy reddish yellow or earthy gray coats with white feet. Their bushy eyebrows produce a serious, severe but cheerful expression.
These hardy, persistent hounds have a resounding voice that can sometimes be quite deep.
