Section 1.1 Continental Pointing Dogs, type « Braque ».

The small size French Pointing Dogs « Pyrenean type » show, while keeping all proportions, with more reduced dimensions and lighter shapes, the same general characteristics as those of the « Gascogne type ». They only differ on the following points :

GENERAL APPEARANCE : Rustic dog, not heavy but sufficiently muscled. Skin tighter than that of the Gascogne type.

HEAD :
Nose : Chestnut-brown in colour, nostrils well opened.
Lips : The lips are less pendent or less convex than in the Gascogne type.
Leathers : Set on above eye line, barely folded. The tips of the leathers must end at 2 cm from the nose leather.

NECK : Slight or no dewlap.

BELLY : Belly less let down than in the Gascogne type.

TAIL : Fine; can be docked or naturally short.

FOREQUARTERS : They are lighter than in the Gascogne type.
Shoulders : Muscular and moderately sloping.

HINDQUARTERS :
Feet : Tight.

HAIR : Finer and shorter than that of the Gascogne Type.

SIZE : Male: 47 - 58 cm.
Female : 47 - 56 cm.
The size of 50 to 55 cm is the one to aim for which covers the most numerous utilizations.

FAULTS : Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog.
• Dog too heavy or hyperlight.
• Lips too droopy or too light.
• Round eyes caused by the exaggeration of the zygomatic and superciliary arches.
• Leathers set at eye level, too long (touching the nose).
• Belly too tucked up (whippety).
• Splayed feet.

ELIMINATING FAULTS :
• Aggresive or overly shy.
• Split nose, pronounced depigmentation of the nose leather.
• Entropion, ectropion, pink spots at the base of the eyelids.
• No tail (anury).
• Syndactyly (toes grown together), surplus toes, absence of toes.

Any dog clearly showing physical or behavioural abnormalities shall be disqualified.
