Full Description

The Briard is an ancient breed of large herding dog, originally from France.

The Briard’s modern-day roles include police, military and search-and-rescue work, as well as companion dog.

The Briard can be tawny, black, grey or blue however there are variations in each color. Briards stand 58 to 69 cm (22 to 27 inches) at the withersEar cropping has been common in the breed, although more breeders are leaving the ears in their natural state since ear cropping is becoming illegal in most European countries, including the Briard’s land of origin, France. When cropped, the ears should stand erect and parallel with the base being wide and tapering to a rounded point with hair covering the opening.
