All Dog Breeds >>Beauceron
The earliest record found so far of what is thought to be the Beauceron dates back to a Renaissance manuscript of 1578. In 1809, the abbey Rozier reported plain dogs guarding flocks and herds. In 1863, Pierre Megnin differentiated, with precision, two types of these sheep dogs: one with a long coat, which became known as the Berger de Brie (Briard), the other with a short coat, which is known as the Berger de Beauce (Beauceron).
Beauceron Right Breed for you ?
Like many breeds within the herding group, the Beauceron is happiest when assigned a task. He is eager to learn and easily trained, but may display independence. The breed’s short coat does not require extensive grooming. Although the Beauceron can be reserved with strangers, he is loving, loyal and protective of his family.
