Basset Fauve de Bretagne

Breed history
The Basset Fauve de Bretagne is an ancient dog breed whose presence is attested at least as early as the 16th century. Descended from the Griffon Fauve de Bretagne, he was on the verge of extinction at the end of the 2nd World War. Still, a passionate breeder, Mr. Marcel Paumbrun, contributed to safeguarding the breed, incorporating contributions from the Basset Vendéen and the Wire-haired dachshund.

Widespread in Brittany in the 19th century, the Basset Fauve de Bretagne became known throughout France in the 1970s. The breed has several French cups on rabbits to its credit. Unfortunately, it is very little represented outside of France. The breed was definitively recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) on October 30, 1963.
