This long-haired French hound, used particularly for hunting wild boars and hares, is the result of interbreeding between the Briquet Griffon Vendéen and different types of large griffons. For a time, he had fallen into oblivion, but he was able to revive thanks to the dedication of a few Breton breeders.
