Originating from the Bourbonnais province of France, the Braque du Bourbonnais (pronounced "brock du bor-bon-NAY") is considered to be one of the oldest short-haired pointing breeds in their native country. It is believed that these accomplished hunters and many other French pointers all originated from the Braque Francais, or French Pointer, an old-type gun dog from Southern France. Although their exact origin is unknown, the Braque du Bourbonnais can be traced back to the late 1500s and similar-looking dogs have been depicted in Renaissance paintings and manuscripts. The breed name Braque means "to aim or point" in French and in English, they are called the Bourbonnais Pointing Dog. In 1988, the first Braque du Bourbonnais was brought to the United States to begin the establishment of the breed.
