Thread Name: What are jubal hounds?
Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
OED:( jubel as a cry "to dogs or the like")

That pretty well fixes it in my mind -- if that was once a common usage for the kind of cry used to urge dogs on (something we don't do much anymore) than it makes perfect sense to call the kind of dog trained to that sort of handling a jubal hound. "Y yeller's dog" or even "Old Yeller" (sorry).
