LaRu is the benevolent dictator of the house, and has an incredible temperament. She is outgoing, friendly, and doesn't have a care in the world! She is very drivey, but actually has an off-button! LaRu can just as easily play tug like a demon, or relax on the sofa. She's a true sweetheart!!!

In 2004, I was trying to decide on my next Briard when I noticed a breeding at a small kennel in France. The sire was a dog I had admired for a long time, so I bit the bullet and wrote to the breeder. Although Mme. Ballan had never done so before, she agreed that if the right puppy was born, she would send her to the USA. I am so lucky she did!!
LaRu is the easiest Briard in the world to live with. She has an absolutely bullet proof temperament; great inter-dog skills; a perfect texture, low maintenance, clear tawny coat; and is a nice moderate size. Everyone who meets LaRu falls in love with her.
From her first litter of four boys, two are finished champions and one was Winners Dog at the BCA National Specialty in 2011. Her second litter produced two champions (both Specialty Selects!), and a Sicalam BIS in South America. I am so very proud of her and her children.
This is LaRu at her very first dog show. She was six months and one day old, and handled the whole thing just like an old pro!
LaRu abolutely LOVES dog shows, and has been known to paw at many a ring gate, trying to get in!
