French Tricolour Hound: Origins and history

A whole range of hunting dogs, many of whom remain close scenthound cousins to the present subject, were developed throughout France in the 19th century. Often the breeders would incorporate elements of Britain’s famous dogs while trying to produce the perfect hunters. However, despite their variety and utility, the French Tricolour and his cousins have failed to become popular outside of France, and their numbers remain somewhat limited.
