Origin

The Montaimboeuf was used in the breeding of the modern Billy Dog which is native to France. They were known for their skillful hunting and their sleek appearance. They were quite large dogs and were able to tackle, hunt, and kill large wild boar. The Montembeouf breed was mainly used to breed other scent hounds for the nobility in France at the time. There is not much information on the Montaimboeuf because as soon as the Billy Dog was bred, they became immensely more popular than other hunting dogs.
