General Health

Generally speaking, the Grande Bleu de Gascogne is known to be a healthy breed with a lifespan of 12 years – this is fairly long for a breed of its size. Because it is such an old breed, it may have greater genetic diversity than newer breeds which may reduce the risk for inherited health problems. Some of the conditions to which the breed may be prone include hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, ear infections, allergies, and dental problems

During the 14th century, Comte de Foix kept a pack of these hounds and Henry IV of France kept a pack of his own during the 16th and early 17th century
