Braque D'Auvergne (Imp)


Illustration of Braque D'Auvergne (Imp)

The Braque d'Auvergne originates in the mountainous area of Cantal, in the province of Auvergne in the mid-south of France. This is a strong, substantial breed. The short, glossy coat is white with black mottling and this creates a blue impression. The head and ears are predominantly black.

This recent arrival into the UK was introduced by working enthusiasts as it has proved itself to be an excellent all round gundog


The Gundog Breed Group

Dogs that were originally trained to find live game and/or to retrieve game that had been shot and wounded. This group is divided into four categories - Retrievers, Spaniels, Hunt/Point/Retrieve, Pointers and Setters - although many of the breeds are capable of doing the same work as the other sub-groups. They make good companions, their temperament making them ideal all-round family dogs.
