Default Picardy Shepherd

My brother got his first very own dog today he's 33 and hasent had a dog of his own since he moved away from home. Well he got a new puppy and he's tan with some gray Picardy Shepherd puppy named Zero. I have never heard of a Picardy shepherd until my brother got his new puppy. I saw him this past weekend and he is the sweetest looking little puppy. He looks like a little mutt but he's got papers and all the good stuff and my brother paid $500 for him.

Heres some info i have gotten at random from my brother since he got Zero. Picardy Shepherds are a rare breed that is from France and originated in the middle ages. It is a dog good for being a herding dog, a companion, or a guard dog. It responds well to obedience training and has a very quick disposition and is a reliable pet. Their great with kids, can live in the city in other words not only a farm dog lol, get along well with other dogs, requires grooming, but can stand up to the eliments.

Sounds like a great dog to me. And my brother is loving owning this dog. i was just wondering if anyone else had ever heard of a Picardy Shepherd?

I agree with Barb04 - what an interesting looking dog. I had never heard of the breed before. That's one of the things I love about being a member of dog forums - I get to learn about different breeds all the time!

I've heard of these dogs. They're very rare and as you said originate from France. I think the Picardy Shepherd is gonna be the star in this upcoming movie, but the name escapes me...

Those are beautiful dogs! I just love the coat especially. I'd never heard of them either; thanks for posting the link.

Huh, I've never heard of them before! You learn something new each day! lol They remind me of a GSD/Schnauzer cross....or maybe a Collie/Schnauzer cross? lol Anyway, if I saw one of those walking down the street, I'd think MUTT and not Pure Bred. lol
