    Porcelaine |France|

    Porcelaine |France|

    This unusual-looking hound is also known as the Chien de Franché-Comté after a region in eastern France that borders Switzerland. The dog’s ancestry probably includes Talbot Hounds, Harriers, and Swiss Laufhunds. Porcelaines were kept by the aristocracy on their large estates, and the breed all but disappeared during the French Revolution. They were re-established by enthusiasts in the nineteenth century, but breed numbers remain low. This dog takes its name from its shiny, white coat, which looks like porcelain. The Porcelaine is used on hare, deer, and wild boar, and usually hunts in packs.
