Braque du Bourbonnais


The Braque du Bourbonnais is goodnatured; but above all else, a hunter. It is athletic, hardy and strong, and has a strong prey instinct. For those who live in rural areas and want a dog for the hunt, you don’t want to ignore the Braque du Bourbonnais. For a family or someone in a confined space, be certain that you can handle what the Braque has to offer.
