Serbian Tricolour Hounds have short and thick coat that lies close to the body. Their undercoat is well developed. Weekly brushing is enough to keep these dogs clean.

Serbian Tricolour Hound coat colors:

  • The base color is deep red or foxy red with a black mantle or saddle; the white mark is allowed on the chest

Since these dogs have droopy ears, you should be very careful and check them regularly. They are prone to developing an ear infection, and because of that, weekly check their ears for any signs of infections – bad odor, redness, wax build-up, etc.
