About the French White and Orange Hound

Like all dogs bred to hunt in a pack, the French White and Orange Hound is easy to live with, although it will want to assert itself in relations with other dogs.

This French hound with a hardy appearance is thought by some to be related to another rare Gallic breed, the Billy, which is said to have been used in the breeding programme.
