About the French White and Black Hound

Dogs of this breed are highly valued in many roebuck packs, due to their industriousness and reliability. Distinguished and well proportioned, they have a fine nose and a good voice.

These are friendly canines that form close relationships with humans and are able to live peacefully in kennels. Their alert nature has earned them a reputation as excellent watchdogs.
