Beauceron Breeders


 


The Beauceron is a distinct French breed of herding dog. Though almost unknown outside of France, the Beauceron has a long history. It is a very old breed developed solely in France with no foreign crosses. The Beauceron is a dog of the lupoid type.

The earliest record so far found of what is thought to be this breed dates back to a renaissance manuscript of 1578. In 1809, the abbey Rozier reported plain dogs destined for guarding flocks and herd. In 1863, Pierre Megnin differentiated with precision two types of these sheepdogs: one with a long coat (The Berger de Brie "Briard") and the other with a short coat (the Berger de Beauce "Beauceron"). They are used extensively on farms in France to herd sheep and in some cases cattle.

Of the many sheep herding dogs in France, the Beauceron is the preferred choice.
