About the Bouvier
The Bouvier des Flandres is the full name for a Bouvier, which in French means cow herder of Flanders. They also have been known as the Flanders Cattle Dog.
They originated from both France and Belgium. The main purpose of the Bouvier was to be a working farm dog; they were to herd the cattle and to protect any livestock that was present on the farm.
Today they are used both as guard dogs and by the police. They have excellent tracking abilities, due to their keen sense of smell, great physical shape and highly intellegent mind.
Bouviers are powerful and have muscular limbs; they are known to be calm and rational but bold. Bouviers are an even-tempered breed which makes them a great family dog.
Size of the breed can range between the sexes. The boys can vary from 24 inches to 28 inches, and weigh between 80-120 pounds. The girls range from 22 inches to 27 inches and 60-80lbs.
Life expectancy is 10 to 12 years, which is average for a large breed dog.
