Breed History / Description

The breed was developed from the sheepdogs of the French plains of Beauce: hence his name - Quiet and confident the breed is also valued as a loyal companion and guard dog and was described by the French novelist Colette as “a country gentleman” - a very apt epithet. His tan markings on the legs earned him the colloquial title Bas Rouge – the Red Stockings.
