Great Gascony Blue

This very old breed of dog, eminently French in terms of head, colour and expression, exudes serene strength and great nobility.

About the Great Gascony Blue

Very widespread in the south (midi) and south-west of France, particularly in Gascony, from where they take their name; they are at the origin of all the scenthounds named “from the South” (du midi). They generally hunt in packs, for which they have a highly developed instinct, although these industrious dogs can work alone as a tracking hound.

They have a very fine nose and a resonant voice, and with moderate training have no problem following commands.
