Breed History & Job Description: The Beauceron is a shepherd dog whose name is derived from Beauce, a vast agricultural region southwest of Paris. Since their development in the late Middle Ages, Beaucerons have played many roles: soldier, bodyguard, rescuer, athlete, companion, prankster, and premier mover of livestock, with a calm, stealthy working style. The breed has won hearts on both sides of the Atlantic, as much for its endearing personality as for its multifaceted working ability. Beaucerons served the French cause with distinction during both world wars.
