Origin The exact origin of the Briard is unknown. However, legend has it that they were established in Europe during the Middle Ages. It has been said that they stemmed from Oriental sheep-herding dogs and crossed with local guarding breeds. An ancient tale states that Aubry of Montdidier was murdered with only his dog as a witness. The King was eventually made aware that the dog was continually following the killer. He ordered a dual between the killer and the dog (common during the Middle Ages). The dog won! The Briard has been said to have the same physical and working abilities as in Aubry's tale, suggesting the dog was a Briard. Charlemagne gave Briards as gifts to friends and Napolean took the breed with him on military campaigns. Thomas Jefferson imported this breed to assist farmers in the United States and Lafayette imported them to be used on his American estate. The breed built a reputation for being trustworthy in battle and was named the official dog of the French army. They would carry supplies to the front lines, served as sentries and located the wounded. They had an uncanny sense of which soldiers would live and die. Due to their sturdy bodies, they were also used to carry machine gun ammunition belts to the gunning replacements. American soldiers were so impressed that the breed was quickly imported to the United States. The Briard is recognized by the AKC and the UKC.
