The Grand anglo-français blanc et noir translated into English as the Great Anglo-Francais White and Black Hound, is a breed of dog used in hunting as a scenthound, usually in packs. It is one of the Anglo-French hound breeds which were created by crossing French scenthounds with English (Anglo) foxhounds. Grand anglo- français blanc et noir is descended from crosses between the old Saintongeois hound and Foxhounds, a type called the Bâtard anglo-saintongeois. The names of all the various Anglo-French hound breeds and varieties were all officially described with the term "anglo- français" in 1957. They are used as a pack dog to hunt large game such as Roe Deer, boar, or smaller animals such as fox. Although these are large dogs, "Grand" does not necessarily refer to the size of the dogs. "In most cases it is simply a label for a pack that is used for larger game". Grand anglo- français blanc et noir is recognised in its country of origin by the Société Centrale Canine (French Kennel Club) and internationally by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale in Group 6, Scenthounds. In France it is bred and kept primarily as a hunting dog, not as a pet or showdog, and there are "twenty or more" working packs and around 2000 registered dogs. The breed has been exported to North America, where it is recognised by the United Kennel Club in its Scenthound Group. It is also registered by minor kennel clubs and internet dog registry businesses, and is promoted as a rare breed for those seeking a unique pet.
Coat colour is white with white-lemon or white-orange marks, the orange should not appear to be red.
Their coat is short and double coated.
Temperament of individual dogs may vary, but in general dogs bred to be pack hunting dogs do not make good pets. Great hunter and tracker, the Grand anglo-francais blanc et noir combines the elegance of French dogs to the tenacity and strength of English dogs, qualities which must be added its large size. With his master and family, he was amiable, intelligent and friendly.
They shed minimal and will only need little brushing and grooming maintenance. Bathe them only when necessary.
These breeds are normally intelligent and will be very easy to train. Positive reinforcement on training is best for these breeds.
They are very playful, energetic, lively and normally active indoors. They require moderate daily exercises to burn off their energies. They can dwell in apartment living as long as they are given enough exercises.
