BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore 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. The Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore is descended from crosses between tricoloured Poitevins and Foxhounds. This combination has strongly influenced this breed in many ways. These animals are strong and compact in stature like the foxhound with a black blanketed tri-colour coat. They were used as a pack dog to hunt large game such as Roe Deer, boar, or smaller animals such as fox. "Grand" does not necessarily refer to size, "in most cases it is simply a label for a pack that is used for larger game". The breed is recognised in its country of origin by the Société Centrale Canine (French Kennel Club) and internationally in 1983 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 show dog. The breed has been exported to North America, where it is recognized by the United Kennel Club in its Scenthound Group. It is also registered by numerous minor registries and internet dog registry businesses, and is promoted as a rare breed for those seeking a unique pet.

COLOR
A tricolour coat is a pattern of some shade of black or brown, some shade of red often called tan, and some white.

COAT
They have a short, double coat.

PERSONALITY
This large Anglo-French hound requires an immense amount of exercise. They are normally kept in large packs in rural areas and may not adapt well to city or family life, although they are said to be good natured. Letting them off the lead may be hazardous as the hunting instinct is very high.

CARE
Minimal grooming and brushing maintenance is required. Bathing should be done when necessary.

TRAINING
These breeds are intelligent but needs to be trained as early as puppyhood or by the moment they are brought home. A firm, fair and consistent trainer is best for them. They will not respond to harsh methods but with positive reinforcement. It is important for their activities to be fun to always keep them interested.

ACTIVITY
These breeds will do okay in an apartment dwelling but must be given enough exercise to burn off their energies and tire them out. A large yard and lots of outdoor activities will be best for them.
