    Anglo Francais Breed Information

An eager hunter with a keen sense of smell, the Anglo Francais is the most popular pack hound in France , though it is seldom found elsewhere. The dog excels at hunting boar: With near reckless abandon it charges into thorny, dense thickets in pursuit of wild pig. As a pack dog, the Anglo-Francais needs canine company. Otherwise it is restless and may even wander.

The name Anglo-Francais reflects the dog's parentage. English Foxhound blood accounts for its endurance; genes of the Poitevin (a rare French breed) account for its courage.

Origin of Anglo Francais

Excessive inbreeding very nearly wiped out the Anglo - Francais . But breeding with the English Foxhound subsequently fixed a healthy strain of hound noted for its speed, vitality, intelligence, and courage.

Practical information about Anglo-Francais

This dog is particularly susceptible to leptospirosis, an infection carried in the urine of rodents. During hunting season, the Anglo-Francais needs high-energy food. After the hunt, it must be protected against cold and humidity and examined for wounds and parasites. Pack dogs do not need to be bathed; their coat tends to clean itself.
