Born from a cross-breed of a lice pointer, offered to King Charles X, and the former Braque Français, the Braque Saint Germain inhereted the qualities of both the races.

This authentic halfbreed was originately breeded for the guards of the royal kennels in the Compiègne forest. Afterwards he got the name Saint Germain, after the forest were the kennels were relocated to.

With his rare elegance, it is a noticeable hunting dog. Endued with a very fine nose, it adapts itself to all sorts of terrains, but excels all the more on high grass: its setting is strong and it oftenly retrieves by itself. Gentle and supple of character, it's an easy student and a children's friend, as it appreciate living at home.

There's only one shortcoming known to this beautiful dog: its relative rarity, as one counts no more than about 50 newly borns each year.
