    Small Blue Gascony

    The Small Blue Gascony, in general, they are considered docile and very attached to their master, very friendly with children and sociable with other dogs.

    Content

    History

    The Small Blue Gascony is a short legged version of the Great Gascony Blue, his ancestor. However, although the history of the latter extends deep into the history of all of Europe and even the United States, their history has remained closely linked to their country of origin, France.

    Its appearance dates back to the end of the Middle Ages, and more precisely to the sixteenth century. The development of the breed is not the result of crossing the Great Gascony Blue with smaller dogs, but simply a true selective breeding program that consists of selecting and raising the smallest individuals, generation after generation. Although they were very efficient at hunting wild boar and large game in herds, the Great Blue was nevertheless a heavy hound, and was not entirely satisfactory in tracking small game in the high forests.

    The Small Blue Gascony was therefore developed for the specific purpose of hunting rabbits, hares and other small game animals. Faster than its predecessor, inherited its tracking and exploration skills from its predecessor. Its use spread in France beyond its region of origin, Gascony (in the southwest of the country). Unlike many dog ​​breeds that were decimated during these periods, did not suffer much with the French Revolution and the two World Wars. Thanks to his skill in hunting rabbits, has been able to get through these clashes in French history without too many losses, and continue to be present in relatively constant numbers despite events.

    However, despite this resistance and its renowned performance in hunting small game, very little was exported, unlike his older brother, that set foot in the United States as early as the 18th century. This is mainly due to the fact that Small Blue, raised in herds, it was much less profitable to hunt than the Great Blue, that it was able to attack larger prey and thus provide more food. However, in France, despite this disadvantage, became progressively more popular than with hunters and families.

    However, gained visibility on the international scene in 1963, cuando the International Cynological Federation (FCI) officially recognized the breed. El American United Kennel Club (UKC) did the same in 1991. However, you still have a long way to go in this regard, as they have not been emulated by many other major organizations. For example, so far, nor the other great American organization, the American Kennel Club (AKC), nor his neighbor the Canadian Kennel Club (CCC), nor the prestigious British Kennel Club, they have taken the step.

    In fact, the Small Blue Gascony today is still mainly present in its country of origin. It has even become increasingly popular there in recent decades.. This was particularly surprising in the 1990s. 1980, when it happened 50 annual entries in the Livre des Origines Français (LOF) in the early years of the decade to more than 200 at the end, namely, quadrupled. The trend increased in the early 1990s 1990, and the number stabilized at around 450 per year from 1993. There is a new rise at the dawn of the 21st century, when the 550 registrations per year. From 2006 there is a steep decline, so that by the end of 2010 there are only a few 350 births per year. However, this is still more than four times the number of its predecessor, the Great Gascony Blue, can boast.

    History Poitevin hound

    The most widespread hypothesis about the origin of this breed of dog is that it was Viscount Émile de La Besge who began to breed the Poitevin hound in the first half of the 19th century. Their dogs, that he had received as a gift from an uncle, were the result of a union between Chiens Blancs du Roi and Larryes. The viscount did not breed any other dogs until rabies killed him in 1842. He lost all his animals except two bitches.

    To restore its population, Émile de La Besge had six dogs brought to him from England (probably English Foxhound). However, then tried to roll back his influence by strict inbreeding. This is how the two males were born, Talbot and Rochester, and the two females, Tartane and Turbulente. Talbot and Turbulent They had a daughter, Dashing, who became famous for her particularly fine nose and speed. Mated with Traveller, an English male bred by him Conde Le Couteulx and gave birth to puppies of exceptional quality. It is assumed that Poitevin today are all descendants of Fringante and Traveller. However, a certain earl Henri de La Porte claimed that his uncles Auguste and Paul they had already begun to fix the race in 1835, and that at the beginning there were quite a few others, namely, the male Ténor and the female Ravissante.

    The Poitevin hound was not accepted as a purebred dog for a long time. In the famous French hunting manualParforce, published in 1890 by the count Le Couteulx de Canteleu, they only mentioned “bastards of Haut-Poitou“, although the ability of dogs to hunt wolves was certainly appreciated. Besides the royal white dogs and the English Foxhound, it is said that the disappeared Larryes and Céris contributed to the creation of the breed. It was a Scent hound medium size white and orange. It is said that he looked like greyhounds and was a very good hare hunter. Perhaps it is from him that the special elegance of the Poitevin hound. Some cynologists also believe that it comes from Larrye, who is said to have had greyhounds in his ancestral line.

    History

    The Austrian Pinscher descends from old Austrian Landpinscher, who was still widespread in the second half of the 19th century as a frugal and versatile farm dog. In 1921 a pure breeding plan was started. Against him German pinscher, seems wider, more robust and more primitive. Emil Hauck became familiar with this type of dog during his travels in the early 20th century and worked for the recognition of the breed by the ÖKV and the FCI. The 16 in October of 1928, this breed was recognized as Austrian Shorthaired Pinscher by ÖKV. In the year 2000 the breed name was changed to Austrian Pinscher.

    However, according to the breeders association, the number of dogs decreased in the decade of 1970 so much so that only one stud dog remained, Diocles of Angers. Starting from this, the breed was preserved using “Landpinschers”. The “Landpinschers” are still used in breeding. The “Landpinschers” are dogs that correspond to the Austrian Pinscher in terms of phenotype and are relatively stable in terms of breeding, without being specifically bred as pedigree dogs in the sense of modern dog breeding.

    Physical characteristics

    It is a medium to small size dog. The eyes are large, with the dark iris. Ears are normally "V" shaped, but there are also buttons, semi-fallen or straight. Breeders try to fix as much as possible a "V" ear that, otherwise, it is already the most common. The tail is implanted high, the dog the coiled cam, frequently on the back, and it's short and thick. Can also be shortened.

    • Hair: short, straight and with undercoat. Remember the smooth-haired fox terrier.
    • Color: the most frequent are wheat yellow, brown yellow, Griffon, fawn red and black with fiery spots. Almost always with large white spots on the chest, snout, throat, neck, nape, extremities and tip of tail. The specimens with the mottled coat, completely black or white and fire are not desirable.
    • Size: 35 a 50 cm., more frequently in tone to the 40 cm..

    Character and skills

    It is a vigorous little dog, bold, temperamental and very resistant. It is a great surveillance dog; on the other hand, not spread as a companion dog, among other things because it is very barking. However, medium-small dogs do not meet the demands of someone who wants a dog for the apartment (always as small as possible), nor those who want a watchdog (preferably medium-large size), and for this reason the spread of the breed is very limited.

    The type of work the dogs did depended on their size and color. Light-colored dogs were most useful at night to be easily seen, while the dark-colored ones worked during the day. Among the white flocks, were easier to see by the pastor.

    During the 17th century, the Puli almost lost as a breed due to crossbreeding with sheepdogs from France and Germany. In 1912, a program was started to revive the breed. In 1915 A breed standard was drafted and approved by the (FCI) International Cynological Federation in 1924. The dogs had made their first appearance at a Budapest dog show a year earlier and were divided into three classes.: of work, exposure and dwarf. In 1934 breed standard was revised and dogs were divided by height: large, medium and dwarf.
