The copper plate was probably first printed in Paris by Auguste Delâtre (1822-1907), in late 1858/1859. On 29 June 1859 Francis Seymour Haden, Sr (1818-1910), asked if Ignace-Henri-Jean-Théodore Fantin-Latour (1836-1904), could bring the plate of 'Le chien' to London. 12

The plate was steel-faced but not cancelled. It was bought with other plates from the 'French Set' from Obach & Co. in 1906 by Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) who bequeathed it to the Freer Gallery of Art. 13
