    Braque D'Auvergne |France|

    Braque D'Auvergne |France|

    This ancient breed of pointing dogs developed in the Cantal region of France and takes its name from the French word braquer, meaning to aim or point. As with many breeds, Braque d’Auvergne numbers were decimated during World War II, and they were threatened with extinction until breeder Andre de Tournay and his wife found about twenty of the dogs after the war. The modern Braque is descended from these. Braques did not arrive in the United States until the latter half of the twentieth century, and their numbers there remain low. The breed excels at hunting and trials as well as making a suitable companion for the right, active home.
