The Anglos-Francaises is a dog breed that has seven dogs listed under it. These dogs are Grand Anglos-Francaises Tri-color, Grand Anglo Francais Blanc et Noir, Grand Anglo Francais Blanc et Orange, Francais Tricolore, Francais Blanc et Noir, Francais Blanc et Orange and Anglo Francais de Petit Venerie. These French dogs are crossed breeds between English Foxhounds and several old French Hounds breeds.

The neck is strong and medium in length. Body is long and athletically built. Legs are strong and muscular and provide plenty of propelling power. These dogs can have varying sizes, from 19 to 27 inches and weights from 35 to 70 pounds. The dogs come in three different colours with short and smooth coats.
These dogs were developed to be used in a pack for hunting purposes and they have highly developed scent and sight abilities. The breed is NOT recognized by AKC.
These dogs come in three colours. These colours are black and white, orange and white or tricolour.
These dogs sport a short and smooth coat.
Though bred for hunting purposes, the Anglos-Francaises dogs make very good family pets as these dogs have true companion-like qualities. The dog is friendly and gentle with its family members including children. It can get along with other dogs as it is used to be in a pack. Small animals like cats etc can be a different story as the dog is instinctively a hunting dog and may chase and harm small animals. This situation can be handled through early age socialization and obedience training. It is docile and gentle around its family members as well as willing to obey. Due to its hunting background, these dogs do not have territorial guarding instincts and hence are poor guard dogs. On the whole, this hunting companion makes a very good family pet.
The short and smooth coat does not require more than occasional, once or twice a week brushing.
The Anglos-Francaises dogs are naturally willing and obedient. Training should not pose a problem as long as the trainer is firm and confident and training is consistent.
Being a hunting breed, these dogs enjoy themselves more outdoors than indoors. They are best suited to a rural setting where they can run and play at will. The owners will need to provide daily walks and ample playing time in a safe and secure open area.
