Braque du Puy

The Braque du Puy was a breed of domestic hunting dog that originated in France. It is thought that the breed was developed in the nineteenth century in Poitou, when greyhound like breeds and Braques were crossbred, although one story suggests that two brothers bred their pet Braque Francais with a Sloughi dog from Africa. This breed was white in color with orange or liver colored markings and could be medium or large. It is thought that the breed is extinct, although many new breeds using a variant of the Braque du Puy name share similar markings.
