Country of Origin:
While the exact origins of the Porcelaine are not known, this breed is one of France’s oldest hunting breeds. Although the Porcelaine was wiped out after the French Revolution in the late 1700’s, the breed was successfully reconstructed, partly as a result of the efforts of the Porcelaine Club which came into existence in 1971.
This breed was named for its bright white coat. Additional names include Lunéville Hound, Franche-Comté Hound, and Chien de Franche-Comté.
Porcelaines are impulsive yet hard-working dogs that work well in packs. With a gentle disposition, this breed is excellent for companionship as well as for hunting. Porcelaines are quite easy to handle as long as they have a firm owner.
Porcelaines require a firm handler, but with the proper owner they are relatively easy to train and handle.
This breed is highly active and requires plenty of exercise.
Due to their high activity level and need for significant daily exercise, Porcelaines are not suitable for apartment living. These dogs like to live and spend a lot of time with their owners and are fierce hunters as well as gentle companions. Porcelaines require regular grooming as well as attentive ear care.
