The Braque d’Auvergne is a very old breed of pointer that has been found in the Cantal region of south-central France for more than two hundred years. Descended from the common pointer stock by and for hunters, including, say some, the Knights of Malta, today’s breed has a very strong identity and a highly distinctive coat.Robust and strongly built, without heaviness, the Braque d’Auvergne is a characteristic Braque type. These French pointers are beautifully proportioned, moving with a light, elegant gait and built to work all day on the most arduous terrain.
