    Gosh do we have no owners of BFDB on the forum, if there is anyone please let me know you can PM if you prefer not to write on the forum. I am considering a change of breed and would like to chat with someone owning this breed as they are on the short list.

    No they are small dogs, very cheerful types, I know the breed well but wanted to know about grooming and that sort of detail only an owner would know.

    My previous neighbour has one. Fantastic little dog, so friendly and with a great character. Luckily she seems to be maintenance free!

    You could be thinking of the griffon fauve de bretagne much bigger and quite rare.

    I had one about 20yrs ago,he was a great character,always up to no good! They are such an enjoyable breed to live with,grooming is really very easy,you strip them like any wirehaired breed,making sure that you do not remove the characteristic points of the breed,they are a very brave little dog,I say little ,only in the fact that they have "short" legs. I would love to have one in my family again.:grin:

    I saw one of these for the first time today. We met one whilst out on our walk.
    Gorgeous little fellow. The owner said she only knew of 4 others around.

    Bentley used to have one as his best mate! They would play so well together, at a time when Bentley was unsure of so many other dogs. His name is Winston and based on him I would say a lovely breed. Would always laugh at him when he'd had a haircut :lol: Janice was a hairdresser so she would do it herself!
    Hope you get the info you're looking for :)

    Hello.
    This is Tootsy a Basset Fauve De Bretagne. We found her in a vide grenier (boot fare) in South West France. The cutest thing looking out of a very dirty wooden box stole my heart instantly. She is currently 7 months old and very lively. She enjoys countryside walks and hunting rabbits. She is prone to running off on the scent of a bunny and disappearing off into the distance. She is pretty laid back, likes a bit of loving but likes her own space too. Just the best little dog ever....

    Tootsy is a real little darling :007:



    It is not a breed I know so may I ask how big she is and what she weighs?

    Welcome to the forum Andrew. Tootsie is very sweet.
    There used to be a B. Fauve just a few doors from us, but they moved :-( He was from a breeder in Derby, but they are not common over here.

    Tootsy is, I guess, not a pure bred puppy. I have seen only one other like her here, funnily enough, owned by another English family. They are not common but probably linked a wee bit to the region of S.W France although I believe their origins are in the Northern parts...
