Grand anglo-francais blanc et noir

The Grand anglo-fran�ais blanc et noir translated into English as the Great Anglo-Francais White and Black Hound, is a breed of dog used in hunting as a scenthound, usually in packs. It is one of the Anglo-French hound breeds which were created by crossing French scenthounds with English (Anglo) foxhounds.

Grand anglo- fran�ais blanc et noir is descended from crosses between the old Saintongeois hound and Foxhounds, a type called the B�tard anglo-saintongeois. The names of all the various Anglo-French hound breeds and varieties were all officially described with the term "anglo- fran�ais" in 1957. They are used as a pack dog to hunt large game such as Roe Deer, boar, or smaller animals such as fox. Although these are large dogs, "Grand" does not necessarily refer to the size of the dogs. "In most cases it is simply a label for a pack that is used for larger game".

Grand anglo- fran�ais blanc et noir is recognised in its country of origin by the Soci�t� Centrale Canine (French Kennel Club) and internationally by the F�d�ration Cynologique Internationale in Group 6, Scenthounds. In France it is bred and kept primarily as a hunting dog, not as a pet or showdog, and there are "twenty or more" working packs and around 2000 registered dogs. The breed has been exported to North America, where it is recognised by the United Kennel Club in its Scenthound Group. It is also registered by minor kennel clubs and internet dog registry businesses, and is promoted as a rare breed for those seeking a unique pet.
