The Briard originated in France and has been seen in tapestries from as far back as the 8th century. They are a herding breed, but due to their excellent sense of hearing, is also the perfect watch dog for the home. The Briard were the official dog of the French Army and while their history beginnings here in the USA are not clear, some credit Thomas Jefferson for bringing the first of these dogs into this continent. The Briard’s coat is long and luxurious and can be any solid color except for white, which includes black, gray or tawny, and they must be brushed daily to avoid matting. Besides their coat the Briard has many other very distinct features including double dew claws on each rear leg, and a crook at the end of their tail. They range in size from 22 to 27 inches tall at the withers. The AKC recognized the Briard in the Herding Group in 1928.
