Interesting how those most interested in the true history of the breed are foreign nationals.The person who wrote this below is Dutch, the one who has the most factual information is Polish and I am not French either. At one time in 2012, when I told the breed club in France that their history on the SCC site was a sight… for sore eyes, I was told by a board member it was going to be re-written in a factual way. Well, that along with lots of other changes at club, never happened and in the end the french breed club still does not even have a history…of the breed, that is.
Read the first part of the breed history, here. The rest will come, soon! It will be the meat-y part, with Grand Barbet de Buffon, not being so “grand“.
