The pachón navarro (plural pachones navarros) is a type of Spanish hunting dog which often has the unusual feature of a bifid nose (a split nose that even look like a double nose). It was formerly believed that this unusual trait gaves it extra sensitivity to smells, a primary reason it was chosen as a hunting dog. Today, it is known that this feature is only a cosmetic difference. The variety is also known by other names: Navarra pointer, Spanish: pachón de Victoria and perdiguero navarro; Basque: nafarroako eper txakur.
