    Berger Blanc Suisse |Switzerland|

    Berger Blanc Suisse |Switzerland|

    The Berger Blanc Suisse, also known as the White Swiss Shepherd Dog, is directly related to the better-known German Shepherd. It’s defining characteristic is its striking white coat, which is medium length but usually slightly longer and heavier around the neck. These are talented and versatile dogs that excel in many spheres, including stock and military work to assistance and search and rescue. They make excellent companion animals. Most Berger Blanc Suisse dogs are good-natured and very intelligent. They are loyal to their families but may be wary around strangers, which helps to make them highly effective watchdogs. The character of the Berger Blanc Suisse is generally considered to be more gentle and mellow than that of the German Shepherd.

    History

    White-coated German Shepherds, although banned from registration in Germany in the 1960s, remained popular in Canada and the United States, where a breed club was formed for them. The first white stud dog to return to Europe was an American-bred dog named Lobo, born in 1966 and registered in Switzerland. From him, the breed was slowly re-established in Europe, with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognizing them as the Berger Blanc Suisse in 2003.
