The Bouvier des Flandres is a powerfully built, compact, rough-coated dog of rugged appearance. He is agile, spirited and bold with a calm and steady manner. The Bouvier is easy going but aloof, he can sometimes be serious or moody. His herding instincts will keep him close to home. Used in police work and helping the blind, he loves the company of people.
