The Francais Blanc et Noir is descended from the Hound of Saintonge, whose origins are unclear. While it is no relation to the Bloodhound, it is probably a distant cognate of the 16th century white Greffier. The present type first appeared in the second half of the 19th century, but was later crossbred with the Poitevin and the Gascon Saintongeois. The first standard was published in 1957.
