History

It also, también ofrecía la oportunidad de establecer relaciones comerciales y resolver asuntos políticos y económicos globales. Unfortunately, la desaparición de la clase alta francesa durante los tiempos de agitación política también significó la desaparición de numerosas variedades de sabuesos rastreadores. After Napoleon's defeat, monarchical power was rebuilt and hound hunting regained its popularity. Gracias a los avances tecnológicos en el tráfico marítimo, la cría de perros se convirtió en una tarea mucho menos difícil y muchos sabuesos británicos fueron enviados a Francia durante el período comprendido entre 1815 and 1900.

La verdadera ascendencia del sabueso francés probablemente nunca será descubierta ya que la mayoría de los primeros criadores no se molestaron en mantener ningún registro de crianza. 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. Se cree comúnmente que otras razas se utilizaron de forma bastante limitada en su programa de cría.

The French Scent hounds kept solely for hunting in large packs. 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, por lo que no ganó el aprecio de los cazadores de otros países. It also, en la actualidad su cría y por lo tanto su población son apoyadas únicamente por la comunidad de cazadores franceses. 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.

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. Thus 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 of today are all descendants of Fringante and Traveller. However, a certain earl Henri de La Porte stated that his uncles Auguste and Paul had already begun to fix the race in 1835, and that in 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 resembled 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.
