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.
