How Logan became Ours
     We were not looking for a puppy.  We had just lost Zima and I was searching on the web for breeders of dogs we were interested in.  We wanted to make contact with a breeder and place our name on a waiting list for the spring time.  Paul and I both agreed that we liked medium to short coat breeds and preferred breeds with erect ears.  Paul likes the artic breeds with coat colors similar to wolves.  I like herding and working breeds with gray, black and tan coloring (known as Harlequin or Merle in some breeds) and black and tan coloring.

     I have always wanted a Beauceron.  They are such a rare breed in the United States.  I stumbled across an ad for a female Harlequin puppy, she was older than what we were looking for.

     Talking with the breeder, I was told that "Jenny" had been chosen by someone at the beginning but when she came to pick her up, she chose a different puppy.  After talking with the breeder and discussing it with Paul, we decided that "Jenny" would be a great fit with our family.

     On August 11, 2006 "Jenny" flew into Boston's Logan Airport at 7:37 pm.  We were cautious when we opened the crate but out came this big puppy.  All legs.  She immediately took to Paul.  She gave me a couple of kisses and then Paul took her outside to use the bathroom, where their bond began.

     During the week that we decided on getting her, we asked the boys what they wanted to name their puppy.  The name that they kept saying was Logan.  So Logan it is.

Beauceron Breed
       Beaucerons are a herding breed from France, their ancestry may be part of the Doberman.  Beaucerons are also known as Berger de Beauce, the Bas Rouge, or the French Shorthaired Shepherd.

     Beaucerons are a large breed dog with males 25˝ to 27˝ inches; females 24 to 26˝ inches at the withers.  Males tend to weigh 80- 110 lbs and Females can be 60- 80 lbs.  They are distinguished by their long tails and double dewclaws.

     Their ears may be kept natural or they can be cropped.  Beaucerons also must have double dewclaws on their rear legs.  They come in two acceptable color; Black and Tan (most common) and Gray, Black and Tan also known as Harlequin (in some breeds called merle) with a white spot on the chest (I was told should be no larger than an American Quarter, Place a Quarter over the white spot, no visible white should show).
    
     They are prone to hip and elbow dysplasia, entropian (eyelids rolling inward),  ectropian (eyelids rolling outward) and bloat.
