he origins of this dog are surrounded in more or less credible legend.
Some affirm that they were the Templarios that, in the Low Average Age took, it to Auvergne (from which it would take his name).

Others say that its mother country of origin would be Malta, of where arrived at France at the time at which the island was governed by the Sovereign Order of the Horsemen, many of which were French.

Anyway, their presumed origins in absolute purity are not for anything trustworthy, since it has settled down clearly that in his definitive construction it has contributed, towards half of the last century, the Pointer. that it contributed to speed and refinement to him of sense of smell.

Prominent superciliary arcs good.
