WHO INTRODUCED THIS BREED IN NORTH AMERICA?
In the spring of 1976, I imported the first Braque Francais to ever set foot in North America. I named her Maffia de l’etang du Marcenac, "KIM". In an effort to introduce and popularize the breed, I wrote an article in "Gun Dog" magazine (April/Mai 92) which proved to be a pillar in the introduction and dispersion of the breed throughout North America. Its popularity is still growing amongst the average hunter.
Dogs I imported from France were carefully selected from top French breeders who are anxious to keep the integrity of the breed in all of its origins. Their conformity and superb hunting abilities are in good standing with the Braque Francais Club of France.
As a breeder and hunter, I appreciate the high qualities and natural abilities the breed has to offer. They develop to be a truly outstanding hunting partner. They set a tremendous example for the pointing breed.
My dogs are raised around people and the puppies are socialized at a very young age. They receive the utmost amount of love and care before they depart for their new homes.
My primary goal is to provide the hunter with a high quality dog that can handle any hunting scenario and can participate in any field event.
Welcome to the home of the Braque Francais.
