Bouvier de Flanders is a sheepdog originally from Belgium. This breed has been used for agricultural work, including heavy work such as wandering cattle, towing carts and grazing sheep. Now, Bouvier is used by the European police as a guard dog and police dog (American policemen prefer German shepherds or Belgian Malinois).

A mountain dog tends to stay away from strangers, but it is not an aggressive dog. On the contrary, he gets along well with families and is very loyal. He is calmer than other breeds. Fun fact: The name Flanders  comes from the city of Flanders, Belgium.

According to Animal Planet, the Flanders mountain dog can weigh between 70 and 100 pounds and measures between 23 and 26 inches at the shoulder. This big dog lives between ten and twelve years old. Although your family may not determine the direction of work on the farm, this breed needs a lot of exercise and activity.
