BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Anglos-Francaises de Petite Venerie was developed in 16th century in France by crossing English hounds with French hounds. The breed was used in packs as scent hounds to hunt small prey. The dogs of this breed are medium in size with, well balanced and solid build with incredible hunting skills. The head slopes gently to the muzzle which is moderately long. The nose is prominent with wide nostrils. The eyes are large and soft with long dropped ears. The legs are straight, long and powerful and help the dog achieve very fast speeds. The tail extends elegantly from spine. The coat is short and comes in three colours. It can gain height from 16 to 22 inches and weight from 35 to 44 pounds. The breed is NOT recognized by AKC however other dog associations and clubs like FKC, UKC recognize this breed.

COLOR
They are found in three different colours. White and black, with bright or pale tan markings. Orange and white.

COAT
The dogs of this breed have short coat.

PERSONALITY
Primarily developed for hunting, the breed has excellent temperament to be a family pet as well. It is friendly and gentle with all family specially children. Due to its background, the breed is very adaptable to live with other dogs but does have high prey drive and is not so safe for smaller animals like cats, squirrels etc. These dogs are excellent working dogs and would need to be doing something most of the time. It will need a very active family or owner to keep up with their energy levels. The dogs are best suitable for rural setting where they have open areas to run and play. They are not suitable for apartment life as these dogs love to be outside rather than inside the house.

CARE
The short coat requires minimal grooming. Once or twice weekly brushing is enough to keep the coat in top condition.

TRAINING
Training this dog is not very difficult as these dogs are obedient and willing to learn. They, however, can be stubborn at times and would need a firm and consistent trainer.

ACTIVITY
These dogs are very highly energetic and would require lots of physical activities. They are more work dogs than family pets and would need large open space to run and play freely.
