The following is a quote from the book
'Les Cheins Courant', by De Castets
"THERE IS NOT AMONG THE BREEDS OF HOUNDS A MORE NOBLE BEAST THAN
THE BLEU DE GASCOGNE.
WITH IT'S MAJESTIC ALLURE, HEIGHT, SHIMMERING COAT, POWERFUL VOICE,
ARCHAIC AND ARISTOCRATIC MELANCHOLY".
We are Christine and Jim Wicks. and we have a great love for this breed.
They can be a handful, but a great delight.
They are loving, but can be wilful and downright mischievous.
As pups, they can't be left alone for hours on end.
As they will find something to occupy themselves.
This will not always be something you would want them to be doing.
They do need plenty of exercise.
The Grand Bleu really benefits from training.
It keeps them occupied and gives them a purpose.
They do not need to be kept outside and can live quite happily indoors
as a family member, as long as you dont mind a bit of chaos.
There are not many Grand Bleus in the U.K. now,
and unless we can get some younger people interested in this breed.
It wont be long until, they will no longer exist in this country.
Which is very sad, as they can be a very loyal and loving family member
