Lively and alert, this rustic farm dog has been a working companion of French farmers since the 14th century. A stable and sturdy dog, the breed’s weather-proof, wiry coat may be fawn or brindle and requires little grooming. With a friendly expression, the Picard is a charming and lighthearted dog, but is known to be stubborn and will require a patient but firm owner.
