Beautiful, impressive, large, shaggy, loving, smart, energetic, faithful, and protective. These are just a few of the qualities of the Briard. Known in their home country, France, as Chien Berger de Brie (shepherd dog from Brie), Briards are called "Hearts Wrapped in Fur." They love their people and are never far from you. It is so-o-o easy to love a Briard! They make the time spent raising and loving them so worthwhile. From Briard puppies to Briard adults, they are great dogs in the right home.
Briards are herding dogs. It is their natural instinct to herd that helps form their personality and character. Briards are bred to know where they belong, to be where they belong, to care for their flock and to protect their "flock". That flock can be sheep, people, and even other dogs. And the Briard version of caring can take many forms, some good, some challenging.
My name is Jeanne Lorang, and I am Lebec Briards. I have owned and loved this breed since 1981. In fact, I'm nuts about them! Please enjoy this website, my Briards, my friends' Briards, and all things Briard. I can be reached by email, or at 661-618-8798.

Nine years after losing my last dog, at a time when I was retiring and thought I was ready for a new puppy, Liza came to me, an adult, a Champion, an already trained dog. She just moved into my house and into my heart. I had no idea at the time that she had not even begun to show her true qualities and talents. What I originally thought was just her neediness was in fact her genuine affection and empathy for all who needed it, especially me. I was honored and privileged to have her faithfully beside me, and in my bed at night, and to witness all of the little miracles she performed as she worked so hard and gave of herself as a Therapy Dog.
I’ll love and miss you always, Liza!
And so will we. You were a great girl, who touched so many lives.
