French White and Black Hound

Of the three French Scent hounds, the French White and Black Hound, is the best known.

Content

The French White and Black Hound is a competent olfactory hound of French origin. It was developed specifically for hunting in large herds and today this breed is acquired exclusively for hunting. Despite her fabulous work skills, it can be found very rarely not only in European countries but also in its native France.

History

Before the french revolution, hunting with large packs was one of the favorite entertainments of the French nobility. In addition, it also offered the opportunity to establish business relationships and resolve global political and economic issues. Unfortunately, the demise of the French upper class during times of political upheaval also meant the disappearance of numerous varieties of sniffer hounds. After Napoleon's defeat, monarchical power was rebuilt and hound hunting regained its popularity. Thanks to technological advances in maritime traffic, Dog breeding became a much less difficult task and many British hounds were sent to France during the period from 1815 and 1900.

The true ancestry of the French Hound will likely never be discovered as most early breeders did not bother to keep any breeding records. However, it can be stated with quite certainty that the breed was created by mixing live and now extinct breeds of French and English hounds. The Saintongeois, Gascon Saintongeois and Poitevin hound were the main ancestors of the French White and Black Hound. It is commonly believed that other breeds were used to a fairly limited extent in their breeding program.

The French Scent hounds was kept solely for hunting in large herds. Its largest quarry were large wild animals such as deer, the wolf and the boar. A group of several hounds detected the scent trail of one of these mammals and chased it, barking loudly so the hunter could go after them. Depending on the type of animal pursued, the dogs were to corner him or kill him immediately.

The number of specimens of this breed of hound drastically decreased after two world wars. French hunting enthusiasts managed to save her, although many unique French breeds were lost to the world during these terrible times. In 1957, the French Hound was fully recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). However, FCI recognition hardly increased the international awareness of this dog, so it did not win the appreciation of hunters from other countries. In addition, currently their breeding and therefore their population are supported solely by the French hunting community. In general, the future of French White and Black Hound you will be fairly insured as long as there are fans of dog hunting in your homeland.

    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.
