The earliest reference to the dog from La Beauce plains near Paris appears to be in a Renaissance manuscript, dated 1578. Like their cousin the Briard, this breed has shown its strength, agility and adaptability in various employment. Originally hunters of wild boar, these dogs turned to herding and livestock guarding and eventually to K-9 dogs for the military and police. The Beauce served its country by carrying messages during the Great Wars. A painting at the British War Museum displays a Beauceron wearing a messenger cylinder attached to his collar and leaping over soldiers in a foxhole. The breed also acted as supply transports and the detection of wounded and of mines. Other capabilities are evident by the choice of Beaucer-ons as dog guides for the blind and as guard dogs. They have much the same versatility as German Shepherds.
