    Can anyone help me find a picardy/bacardi shepherd puppy? I live in southern British Columbia and haven't had any luck searching on the net. Thanks.

    I have honestly never heard of this breed.

    What does it look like? Is it recognized by any Kennel Club?

    Sounds more like a hard drink lol

    I know the breed that you mean. One just appeared in a kids movie..in the trailer, the dog ran through a grocery store..
    OOH this is bugging me...anyone know the movie I'm talking about. To me this dog looks like a wire haired briard.

    The movie is 'Because of Winn-Dixie'. :) They're a delightful looking breed.

    Wow, Hollywood really can't help themselves when it comes to casting purebreds, can they? ;) Even the scruffiest looking 'mutt' has a paper heritage as long as my arm.

    Good call on the briard...also a sheep herding dog from France. Trust me to
    A. desire a breed only available halfway around the world and
    B. one that has been a star in a movie! ;)

    Ah well the search continues.

    I found a breeder in Kansas.
    But that's pretty far. They say that there are an estimated 2000 Picardy Shepherds worldwide, so expect to pay a pretty penny :).
    They don't say much about their dogs, so if you contact them, ask about health testing (not just vet checked!) and make sure they are showing them.
    Best of luck, and let me know if you decide on a different breed as I live in B.C too and can help you locate breeders.

    Tucker,
    That is very kind of you. I most certainly am open to different breeds. I will get back to you. Thanks.

    Love4Pits brother bought one, then obtained another from a woman who could no longer keep hers . . . Last I heard they were all besotted with the pair :D

    That's why I like these dogs, because they do look like mutts. I have been open to adopting a dog for some time but after several dissapointing attempts I thought the best course of action would be to get a puppy that looks like a mixed breed.

    I think this is the breeder Tucker is talking about and my recommendation would be to contact them and ask for references. Or look into them if they aren't too far.
