The Briard (Berger de Brie) is a French sheepdog dating back to at least the 7th Century. The breed was recognized by the Le Club Francaise du Chien de Berger in the late 1800's. As the official dog of the French Army, Briards carried supplies, stood sentry, and performed search and rescue duties during World War I.
Today it is a faithful family companion and excels at herding, Search and Rescue, and dogsports from Agility to French Ring.
