Briard

Share Button

A long-time native of France, the Briard is depicted in eighth century tapestries and described in works of the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries as well. The Briard is a shepherd dog, originally bred to work flocks and herds, and thus is easily trained, loyal, hardy, and intelligent. The breed’s characteristic eyebrows and beard and high-set ears give the breed a unique expression. The coat is coarse, hard, and dry; it lies flat on the body, falling naturally in long, slightly wavy locks; it can be up to six inches long on the shoulders. The breed stands 22-27 inches tall and can be any solid color except white. The Briard is a strong-boned, substantial dog that requires plenty of exercise and routine grooming procedures.
