The authors of the time described him as a pleasant companion for the hunter, de aspecto rústico y saludable, born with a short tail, with a white fur, whole and finely speckled with light brown or fawn trout.

After World War I, a group of dedicated breeders formed the first Club du Braque du Bourbonnais in 1925 with the goal of reviving the race and restoring its pre-war prominence. El primer estándar de la raza se publicó en el primer boletín del club en 1930. Although the organization and these breeders made considerable progress, his efforts were again almost wiped out by World War II.

Se había logrado el objetivo de revivir la raza, the breed standard relaxed, spotting and docked tails were found acceptable and the breed's remarkable hunting instincts were restored. The new breed standard was fully recognized by the SCC and the FCI in 1991. The standard was translated and published on the FCI website at 1998.
