I had an opportunity to work with a Braque Du Bourbonnais (pronounced â€œbrock-do-bor-bon-NAYâ€) this last weekend. This French pointer is anÂ uncommon breed; in a quick web search, I only found four breeders in the US.Â I guess this is an old breed, which traces back to the Spanish pointer of the 1500′s.Honestly, I had never heard of this breed before I got a call from the owner. The dog was strikingly different in appearance. He looked like a stocky shorthair with khaki-blond ticking. After reading a bit about the history of the breed I was curious to meet the dog and see itâ€™s hunting instincts.
