Griffon Fauve de Bretagne were used in packs for hunting wolves and wild boar, and Francois I was known to keep a pack of Griffon Fauve de Bretagne. With the elimination of wolves in the nineteenth century, they nearly became extinct. In 1949, Marcel Pambrun founded the Club de Fauve de Bretagne to save the remains of the breed that had been kept alive by a few farmers and hunters. Since the 1980s the Griffon Fauve de Bretagne and the derived breed, the Basset Fauve de Bretagne, been successfully restored in numbers and are popular hunting dogs.

The breed is a good hunting dog, still used in France to hunt boar, but is also a good family dog. Examples of the Griffon Fauve have been exported to other countries, where they are promoted as a rare breed for those seeking a unique pet.
