Petit Bleus de Gascogne Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Small Blue Gascony Hound
Breed Group: Hound Group Height Male: 20-23 inches (50-60 cm.)
Breed Size: Medium Height Female: 20-23 inches (50-60 cm.)
Breed Origin: France Weight: 40-48 pounds (18-22 kg.)
Appearance
The Petit Bleu de Gascogne has a thick, dense coat. The ears are low set, thicker and less curled than its cousin the Grand Bleu de Gascogne. The long head is refined looking. The chest is deep providing ample space for the large lungs. The forelegs are surprisingly strong in relation to the rest of the body. The thighs are flat but have powerful muscles. The feet are oval and fairly long with black pads and tan hair.
 

Temperament
The Petit Bleu de Gascogne has a superior nose and is an excellent hound, which can follow the faintest of scents. Resourceful and determined, this breed is usually not easy to obedience train. It gets along extremely well with other dogs.

Of even temperament, essentially friendly. Some individuals may be very outgoing, while others are somewhat reserved in nature, but never shy or vicious. As a hunting/working Scenthound breed, and being called upon to work in close proximity with other hounds and their handlers, aggression towards other hounds and people is to be considered a fault. Extreme shyness or viciousness is a disqualification.

 
History
The Petit Bleu de Gascogne is a Scenthound of ancient lineage, eminently French, showing signs of certain distinction. They are descended from the original scenting dogs of Gaul and the Phoenician hound trade; specifically they developed from the Grand Bleu de Gascogne. They are generally used to hunt hare. Gascony Province, the area of their development, is located on the southwestern coast of France.
 
Health
If you are considering a Petit Bleus de Gascogne puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
