Pachon Navarro
Other names Old Spanish Pointer; Perdiguero Navarro; Navarro Pointer; Perdiguero de Burgos; and, Pachon De Victoria (xxx group)
Country of origin Spain

The Pachon Navarro is a Spanish hunting dog (also known as: Old Spanish Pointer; Perdiguero Navarro; Navarro Pointer; and, Pachon De Victoria), has the unusual feature of a split or double nose. It is believed that this unusual nose gives this dog extra sensitivity to smells, a primary reason it was chosen as a hunting dog.

In two photographs, of what has been called the Double-nosed Andean tiger hound, which were widely published in 2006 and 2007, there are two Andean dogs that are believed to be remotely descended from the Pachon Navarro and who bear an unusual "double nose". It appears to be a normal dog's nose, but with the nostrils separated by a band of skin and fur dividing the nose all the way to the dog's upper lip. In photographs at a Pachon Navarro website[citation needed], the split nose is much less conspicuous than it is on the Andean dogs.



The modern Pachon Navarro is a braque-type hunting dog which points game. It has short hair that may be liver and white, or orange and white, commonly ticked like the coat of most German Shorthaired Pointers. The head and large patches on the coat are generally solid-colored.

With a broad head, the dog is a substantial animal, around 27-33 kilograms and 48-57 centimeters tall. The ears are long.


The Fédération Cynologique Internationale, Europe's major kennel club, does not recognize the Pachon Navarro at this time.

The Pachon Navarro is thought to have descended from the Talbot hound and other hounds, originating in the twelfth century.

The breed is believed to have reached its apex of popularity among Spanish nobility of the 18th and 19th centuries, becoming nearly extinct after the Spanish Civil War. A few enthusiasts scoured the country and have re-established breeding stock.

The Double-nosed Andean tiger hound found in South America is presumed to be descended from Pancho Navarro dogs brought by the Spanish Conquistadors in the 1500s.
