Griffons Fauves de Bretagne - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

A LITTLE news from Sweden: .now there are over 130 Griffons in Scandinavia and all but a few are living with hunting people. They are amazing trackers finding various wounded animals, many of which are the result of car accidents. They mainly track wild boar, elk, deer, rabbit, hare and sometimes the fox.    ...

Griffons Fauves de Bretagne - week 4Updated : 19/01/2017

I HOPE you all had a wonderful festive season and a happy healthy new year.      Talking to the owner of buzz from the B litter her owner has had a harrowing time with her boy since August last year as he has been attacked three times by other dogs while out on a walk and he was on a lead. One attack res...

Griffons Fauves de Bretagne - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

APOLOGIES for the lateness of the following notes due to me having computer problems.      What a lovely year this was for our breed as we are a numerically small breed, but for Dino to be top import all breeds is no mean feat. He was leading half way through the year and continued to the end of the se...

Griffin Fauves de Bretagne - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

A CALL from Debbie Treadwell regarding her boy Arnold from the first litter born in the UK.      He is always getting into mischief but no not this time, no this time he was a star. She keeps a few hens and sadly where there is poultry and food droppings usually comes rats. Several attempts to flush th...

Griffon Fauve de Bretagne - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

DISCOVER Dogs was once again a huge success lots of visitors certainly on the Saturday. I left at lunch time Sunday and a steady stream of visitors were making their way around the halls. The organisers did a sterling job. I am sure there would be some complaints but from our part and chatting to others it went well. The ven...

Griffon Fauve de Bretagne - week 38Updated : 15/09/2016

BY THE time this goes to print the Pedigree Paws Unite walk will be over and let’s hope they meet their target of £75,000 to be shared with all the wonderful charities. I am sure it will as it has been so generously supported. A hot week weather wise for walkers and their dogs but with plenty of water on hand at ...

Griffon Fauves de Bretagne - week 35Updated : 25/08/2016

WHAT A shame we are not only bottom of the pile regarding import register which allows us to show our breed in that classification only. I have been informed from a very good source that Higham Press has failed to report correct information three times so far this year. I certainly picked up on it last weekend at WKC, a phon...

Griffons Fauves de Bretagne - week 33Updated : 15/08/2016

HOUNDSHOW over for another year – it was good to see the support in the import register with 17 in total over various breeds. Plus the price to enter like all other ch shows compares with AVNSC and any variety hound. This is unlike Crufts where we pay the same price as CC breeds, a bone of contention with us all. I hav...

Griffons Fauves de Bretagne - week 32Updated : 05/08/2016

THE FRENCH Elevage was last weekend and a good turn out too for both the Griffons and the Basset Fauves I am told. The location was much further south so nobody from the UK made the journey. The southern kennels were well represented but north France and mid France were very thin on the ground but again France is a large cou...

Griffons Fauve de Bretagne - week 28Updated : 08/07/2016

A LONG while since I put pen to paper but no one out there is doing more than enjoying their Griffons as pets, of course any news regarding the breed is most welcome.      Just a quick few words regarding Dino who throughout his puppyhood has been a star in most cases beating his mum to best import at ...

Griffon Fauve de Bretagne - week 7Updated : 11/02/2016

CONGRATULATIONS to Phil and Dianne Reid. Not only did they go BIS recently with their Petite but the same weekend they were invited to the Contest of Champions to represent the Griffon Fauves with Arnie, he is now four years old, bred from the first litter to be born in the UK. A wonderful achievement for our breed being top...
