Did you know ?


Pyrénées-types are more spirited, impetuous and faster on the ground than Gascogne-types, and they know just how to conserve energy so they do not use it up too soon.

The Braque Francais is a native of the southern Pyrenean. As a highly adaptable breed it has found a home with hunters from other parts of France, as well as abroad.


Braque Francais Pyrenees-type In a few words :

  • Head

    Chestnut brown with well opened nostrils. The lips are less well descended than in the Gascogne-type.


  • Body

    Belly less let down than the Gascogne-type. Not too heavy or light.


  • Coat

    Brown or white ticked or speckled.


  • Ears

    Set above high level, barely folded, tips reach no farther than to within ¾ inch of the nose.


  • Tail

    Fine, may be naturally short at birth.


  • Hair

    Finer and shorter than the Gascogne-type.



The Braque Francais Pyrénées-type has the same general characteristics as the Gascogne-type, only smaller and lighter. These hardy dogs, adequately muscled but without heaviness, have a somewhat tighter skin than their cousin.
