History

The Fawn Brittany Griffon it is one of the oldest breeds of French trace dogs, since in the fourteenth century a certain Huet des Ventes already had a pack of that type. Widely used until the 19th century for wolf hunting in Brittany, rested when these animals disappeared.

In the 1949, The Brittany Fawn Club was created by Marcel Pambrun to dedicate himself to preserving the value of these dogs, that had become scarce. Since the decade of the years 80, under the impulse of Bernard Vallée, the Fawn Brittany Griffon, as well as the race derived from it, the Fawn Brittany Basset, they seem to have made a place for themselves among French track dogs. The motto "hunting first and foremost" continues to be the Club's line of conduct.
