A Short History of the Breed
Vigorous and alert, this powerful and agile breed, whose most common job has been herding, is a native of France. Depicted in 8th-century tapestries and mentioned in records of the 12th century, Briards were used to defend their charges against wolves and poachers but transformed into the more peaceful tasks of herding (excerpt in part via AKC) – Read More
Hello and Welcome
Over the last nearly twenty years we have dedicated our lives to the enjoyment and appreciation of this extraordinary breed. Our Briards have given us moments of extreme joy, like winning Best of Breed at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Show, as well as numerous All Breed AKC Bests in Show. The loss of some of our old timers, pictured in these pages, like the loss of a child, has created an emptiness in our hearts.
As you peruse the pages of our Web site we hope you will see the beauty, grace, grandeur and, most of all, the love we have given these fabulous dogs—love that has been returned to us ten-fold!
All our best,
Merry Jeanne and Tommy Millner
