Grand Bleu De Gascogne

Breed History / Description

This long legged aristocrat of the French scent hounds was used originally for hunting wolves, and more recently for hare. Like many of the French Hounds he came to England with the French forces during the Norman Conquest in the 11th century. Like the Basset Bleu de Gascogne he has the distinctive mottled colouring which gives him the 'bleu' of his title.


Highly developed sense of smell and deep bay. 


Gentle and kind.
