Like all dogs bred to hunt in a pack, the Francais Blanc et Orange is easy to live with, although it will want to assert itself in relations with other dogs.
Fairly broad, moderately elongated.
Broad, straight back, slightly arched loins, rounded croup, broad chest, rounded ribs.
White and lemon or white and orange, provided the orange is not too dark (reddish).
Set just under eye level, supple, fine, slightly curled, reaching almost to the nose.
Smooth and fine.
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 program.
