    Braque du Bourbonnais |France|

    Braque du Bourbonnais |France|

    In France the different pointing dogs are known for their area of origin, but all share some similar characteristics, particularly their efficiency at hunting, pointing, and retrieving. These dogs are thought to descend from the ancient Spanish pointing dogs early in history, with the Bourbonnais first mentioned in the 1500s. Historically Bourbonnais pointers were born tail-less or with a very short tail and with a white coat covered in fawn or liver ticking or fine lines. This was called lie de vin, wine dregs, or fleur de peche, peach blossom. Breeding for these traits instead of performance was detrimental to the dogs, and the standard has since been changed to address the problem. These are versatile hunting dogs that work on land and in water.
