The Bouvier Des Flandres History

These native Belgian cattle dogs may not be the most popular agility dogs, but like any of the working dogs can hold it’s own.

Used not only for cattle work and guarding, the Bouvier was also used during WWI by the French in it’s medical corps.

Though they were almost eradicated, the Bouvier was saved with the help of the Belgian Kennel Club.

They can mature to 100 pounds and like other herding breeds, they are independent thinkers with plenty of energy.

As this video states they probably are not a good first dog and definitely would not be good for apartment living.

And while this breed was kept by many notable figures it remains a blue collar worker with fierce loyalty.
