The Bouvier des Flandres, also referred to as the Belgian Cattle Dog, is a Belgium cattle driving dog. It looks a lot like a giant Scottish Terrier. It stands between 23 and 27 inches tall and weighs between 59.5 and 88 pounds. It has a thick coarse outercoat and a soft undercoat. It traditionally comes in black, brindle, and fawn coat colors.

To care for this breed you will want to brush its coat every week. This is a must with this breed as their long coat mats easily. You will also need to brush their teeth, clean their ears, and trim their nails on a regular basis. This breed needs a lot of exercise, however, low impact exercise is preferable as their heavy build is not designed to handle extended running or jogging. Some of the health problems that you should keep an eye open for include hip problems, joint problems, bloat, and eye conditions.
