Ariege Pointing Dog

Despite only reappearing recently, the Ariege Pointing Dog is actually one of the Pyrenean braques, although it is less well known than the Gascogne or Pyrenean type.

About the Ariege Pointing Dog

These mountain pointers from south-west France are adapted to all forms of hunting. Hardy, docile and easy to train, they are powerful yet lean dogs that exude vigour.

Lean legs, prominent muscles and well-defined lines are sought after. Their pale orange-mottled – sometimes brown-flecked – white coat produces an elegant, distinguished dog.
