Its remote origin, according to some authors, would be the Middle East, from which it was introduced to Europe by the Crusaders. Already in Europe its breeding was carried out by the monks of the abbey of St. Hubert in the Belgian Ardennes, hence its name. In England in 1066 came from the hand of William the Conqueror.

It has also been used as a police dog to track fugitives (depending on which has appeared in some movies fame). Some hunters consider it slow, which has relegated his duties as hunting and is considered increasingly as a companion dog.
