La Vendée is a district on the western coast of France, south of Brittany. The hounds of Vendée are some of the oldest varieties, bred directly from the white Southern Hound with crosses to rough-coated dogs reportedly from Italy.

Crosses also occurred to the Griffon Niver-nais. One of the first breeders was a king's recorder (clerk) in the 15th century. Clerk in French is greffier, and the reference to the "gref-fier's dogs" gradually became "griffon."

The name was first used to describe these breeds and later to indicate many of the wire-coated hunting dogs. Several griffons were given to King Louis XII, In fact, the breed was once called Chiens Blancs du Roi or the King's White Hounds.
