Grand Bleu De Gascogne

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


As a large-breed dog, the Grande Bleu de Gascogne should be fed a high-quality dry food formulated for large-breed adult dogs. Because the breed was developed for hunting, he may do well on an active or working breed formula

The Grand Bleu de Gascogne is a French hound. The breed is thought to have descended from dogs kept by Phoenician traders – breeds like the St. Hubert Hound and the English Southern Hound. 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


The Grand Bleu de Gascogne was developed from the Bleu de Gascogne type which is one of the oldest purebred dogs in the world, hailing from France
