    History & Overview

    The Auvergne pointer is a very ancient breed, present in the Cantal region for more than two centuries. Descending from a multi-pointer common source, derivation has been made by a selection to which the Knights of Malta might have participated. Created by and for hunters, it has a strong identity reinforced by its coat.

    The Auvergne pointer is a robust dog, strongly boned, but without heaviness, showing a characteristic Braque type, lightness in its gait, with elegance enhanced by the coat and harmonious proportions. Its conformation predisposes it to cover long distances with a supple-action, permitting it to maintain its activity the whole day on the most challenging terrains.

    Character & Behaviour

    Also known in his native France as Bleu d’Auvergne, the dog trains with a breeze. He has a hard mouth but is an excellent retriever. His high intelligence, affectionate nature and unending enthusiasm on the field make him a treasure among the gun dogs.
