During archaeological campaigne on Vu~edol site 7 crania and cranial fragments together with 10 halfs of lower jawswere found. Due to existance of crania and lower jaws damages and therefore lack of preserved craniometrical points, it was not possible to measure the same craniometrical lengths on all the samples. Apart from craniometrical measurements, 6 craniometrical indices and ratios were calculated. Comparison of calculated values and values of craniometrical
indices and ratios identify dog's crania from Vu~edol site as dolichocephalic cranial type. Mutual comparison of all analyzed craniometricalvalues for crania and lower jaws of dog's crania don't show a significant difference in size and ratios of individual measures, nor significant deviation in value of the samples of other Vu~edol culture sites. This point out on type of dogs with similar appearance which tallness and form respond to smaller dog's breed, in the first place a type of Croatian sheepdog or Hungarian Mudi.
