History of the breed

Appeared during the 19th century, the Braque de l’Ariège is the result of the cross between the old French Braque and different strains of Braques du Sud . Today, we still meet very few representatives of the breed outside its region of origin from which it bears the name. Braque de l’Ariège enthusiasts strive to perpetuate it through quality breeding. The breed of the Braque de l’Ariège was definitively recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) on June 28, 1955.
