French White & Black Hound: Origins and history

The Gascon Saintongeois is noted as a dominant ancestor in the lineage of this hound; the English Foxhound and Bleu de Gascogne are in there, too. Some say she was developed as a means of saving the ailing Saintongeoisie, while others proffer that her development was intended primarily to create a kind of scenthound ‘superdog.’ While she may be too modest to truly describe herself as Superdog, the French White and Black Hound is all the same a very super dog.
