Being near Italy and the Pyrenees Mountains, he traces back to the Spanish Pointer or Italian Pointer (Bracco Italiano), both of which he resembles. About 60 years ag, the Ariege was modified by crossing with the racier Braque Saint-Germain and even the Braque Francais. The dog is big (stands 23.5-26.5 inches at shoulder and weighs 55 to 66 pounds) and robust, the largest of the French pointers.
