According to a legend when Prince Vijaya first arrived in Sir Lanka in the 6th century BC, he was greeted by the barking of these dogs. There is not much evidence or written record about the breed, but some people believe that it is the Sinhala Hound that was mentioned in the Mahavamsa which would indicate that the dog goes way back in time. The Mahavamsa, also known as the “Great Chronicle”, is a meticulously kept historical chronicle of Sri Lanka, written in the style of the epic poem and which dates back to the 5th century. In the chronicle, there are domestic dogs mentioned who belong to the island’s Stone Age inhabitants. However, we cannot be sure if they were actual Sinhala Hounds.
