Fawn Brittany Griffon: Origins and history

This happy hunter can be traced back at least as far as the 14th century, when a chap with the wonderful name of Huet des Ventes is on record as having a pack of the things. The Griffon Fauve de Bretagne was largely employed as a hunter of wolves until the latter approached extinction in the 19th century; thereafter it fell to a rare man, Marcel Pambrun, to preserve this rare dog, a vocation at which he succeeded chiefly as a result of establishing the Club de Fauve de Bretagne in 1949.
