Considered to be one of the varieties of Schweizer Laufhunds (Swiss Scenthounds), the current status of the Jura Type Saint Hubert Hound is a matter of debate. According to some sources a few of the original breed members managed to survive through the ages and they are being used in the breeds revival. According to other sources all of the original members died off long ago and those in existence now are merely recreations obtained by selectively breeding other varieties of Schweizer Laufhund. In either case very few of these dogs exist in revival or recreated form and any of those would share the same historical beginnings as the other varieties of Schweizer Laufhund. For more information on the development and history of this breed please see the Schweizer Laufhund page which provides the combined history of all breeds and varieties in this group.
