The breed came about in the Ariège region located in southwestern France. It was created in 1912 by the joining of a Briquet with an indeterminate scent hound of the day (possibly the Bleu de Gascogne). The Grand bleu is a breed of dog believed to have been brought to France by the ancient Phoenicians.
