This "canines" border is found on a tapestry from the Story of Gombaut et Macée wall hangings woven in the workshops along the Faubourg St. Marcel supervised by François de La Planche (or Frans van der Plancken) after Laurent Guyot around 1627, held at the Mobilier National, Paris (GOB 147) which acquired it in 1881. Note that the French Crown furniture had a wall hanginh of Gombaut and Macée with a border described as: "la bordure fond rouge brun avec rinceaux et grotesques. Quatre camaieux dans les milieux, et quatre chiens aux quatre coins" (the border with brownish red ground with scrollworks and grotesque masks, four camaieux in center, and four dogs on the four corners). 

The presence of "à or" (gold) threading suggests that these borders may com from the Garde-Meuble royal (French Royal Guard Household) or from a prestigious patron. 

The Royal Palace of Genoa (Italy) has a Story of Diana tapestry with a "canines" border which bears the mark of Philippe Maëcht (or Philippe de Maëcht), master weaver from the Faubourg St. Marcel workshops, after a design by Toussaint Dubreuil (1558-1602), first painter to the French King.
