More details about the Saint Germain Pointer

Saint Germain Pointer: Origins and history

The Braque Saint-Germain breed first began during the 1830s by breeding the Braque Francais and the English Pointer. It is known that King Charles X was gifted 2 Pointer dogs, one of whom, known as Miss, was used for breeding with a Braque Francais male. Initially, the breed was named Compiegne Pointers as a result of the kennel location, but later when they relocated to the Saint-Germain region, the breed took up this name. In 2006, the UK Kennel Club granted full recognition to the breed within their gun dog group.
