Country/Date of Origin: France/1700s
This breed is said to have been created when King Charles X of France crossed an orange and white English Pointer that he received as a gift with a Braque Francais. This laid the foundation of the breed. Used for hunting large game, it was concentrated for a long time in the area around St. Germain, which gave it its name. It is a rare breed even in its own country.
