I don't know if that is a Briard. The muzzle looks awfully narrow. The colours are strange for a young dog...let alone a Briard. The tail doesn't have a crook. Nor can you see double dew claws.
I think someone just made a guess of the breed. Now a days there are so many crosses it could be a number of breeds.
But that doesn't mean he doesn't deserve a home! Hope he finds one soon.

This dog has been advertised for a while now and has been looked into and is not a Briard.
It's always sad to see any dog needing a home but I'm sure the Dogs Trust will do a good job of finding a home.

Oh Judy please don't be sorry we are always watching out for Briards in need and it's lovely that you care. Lets hope the poor dog gets his forever home soon.
Thanks Brenda x

Totally agree with Brenda. It's always worth mentioning if you hear of a Briard in need. Definitely nothing to be sorry about. There have been dogs in the past identified as BRIARDS, but turn out not to be.
As so many of us know, people will approach us and tell us our dogs are NOT Briards but numerous other breeds i.e.: beardies, labradoodles, OES....even Irish wolfhound!

Very Happy Yes - just had a rather heated " chat " with a friend who insisted the OES in the village was a Beardie.... Rolling Eyes

The most frequent comment we get is "isn't he handsome - you don't see many of these around. I/we love Afghans"! Their reaction when we say he is a Briard is priceless - embarrassment with a capital "E"!

But the best discussion we ever had was when a guy came up to us and asked the "make of dog". When we explained he was a Briard, he stated that he had a Berger de Brie which was much bigger and more handsome than Briards. I resisted the opportunity to explain the difference .......! Some people love to pretend they are "know-it-alls". Very Happy

David T, I'm in tears of laughter! You have made my week. That is absolutely hilarious. Very Happy Very Happy

And I like the moniker "Cheese Hound." I've got a Dogue de Bordeaux as well so I've got wine and cheese. Fantastic.
