Bouvier des Flandres Description
  The Bouvier is a impressive, powerful dog with a massive and heavily coated head with a beard and mustache. Its shaggy eyebrows and thick beard give the Bouvier a distinctive appearance. Its strong and broad muzzle is slightly tapered. It has a black nose and its oval eyes are dark brown with a bold, affectionate, and lively expression. The teeth meet in a scissors bite. Its ears are triangular and erect. The Bouvier has a square profile due to its body length from point of shoulder to the tip of the rump is approximately equal to the height of the dog from the withers to the ground. Its front legs are perfectly staight and muscular and its chest is deep and broad. It has a double coat. The outer coat is rough and shaggy looking and is harsh and dry to the touch, very much like steel-wool. It is lined with a dense undercoat. The coat protects the dog in all types of weather. Its tail is docked and some may have cropped ears, though some breeders prefer to leave them natural. Begian lines tend to be somewhat smaller and lighter than Dutch bloodlines.
