About the Artois Hound
Artois Hounds are large-sized dogs that are nowadays especially used in hunting with guns. These industrious hounds, not so fast, but capable of sustaining their pace, drive the game toward the firing line by closely following the scent with their very good noses.
A pack of six to eight well-matched Artois Hounds will perform to the satisfaction of even the most demanding huntsman. They are known to be hardy, well-balanced and affectionate dogs, both in the field and the home.
