Looking for Briard Puppies?
The Briard is an ancient breed of large herding dog, originally from France. A Briard-type dog appears in Gaston Febus' Livre de chasse, written in the 14th century. According to legend, about the same time, a Briard fought a judicial duel with Robert Macaire to avenge its owner's murder, Aubry of Montdidier. Charlemagne, Napoleon, Thomas Jefferson, and Lafayette are all said to have owned Briards. It became popular after the Paris dog show of 1863, after the breed had been fixed, with crosses with the Beauceron and the Barbet. During the First World War, the Briard was used, almost to the point of extinction, by the French army as a sentry, messenger, and to search for wounded soldiers. The Briard's modern-day roles include police, military and search-and-rescue work, as well as companion dog.
You want an Briard puppy. There are over 2,000,000 puppies born in the United States every year and 99% are bred and born in puppy mills. Many Briard puppies are born in these puppy mills. They are bred by breeders who only care about the money. These breeders will tell you the mother and father are healthy when they are not. The breeder will tell you the mother and father are "AKC" registered and healthy but AKC does NOT require the dogs to be tested before breeding. These breeders will tell they use ethical breeding practices when they do not. You need to do all you can to insure the Briard puppy you purchase for yourself or your family has the greatest chance of being bred in a healthy environment. Dogs don't live as long as we humans and if you are spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on an Briard puppy, SPEND IT WISELY!
