The Transylvanian Hound, also known as the Transylvanian Scent Hound or Hungarian Hound, is an ancient dog breed of Hungary, historically primarily used for hunting. It is a strong, medium-sized scent hound, characterized by a black body, with tan and sometimes white markings on the muzzle, chest and extremities, and distinctive tan eyebrow spots. It has a high-pitched bark for a dog of its size. There were formerly two varieties, the long-legged and short-legged, developed for different kinds of hunting in the Middle Ages.
