Briard Description
  The Briard is a muscular, large herding dog with a long, coarse, slightly wavy double coat. An adult coat is attractive, bushy and 6 or more inches long. It has a shaggy beard, mustache and eyebrows. Its ears may be cropped or left natural and are usually clipped into a rounded shape so the hair cascades from them into the rest of its coat. It has a black nose and the muzzle is long and square. It has a long, feathered tail that has a cochet hook at the tip. Like many other French shepherds, the Briards have two dewclaws on each hind foot. It has an elegant gait that is floating and agile, giving the appearance that the dog is not touching the ground.
