    This handy guide contains everything you need to know about the intelligent, companionable Briard. Distinguished by a crooked tail and thick, wavy coat, the Briard is a lively herding dog and loyal protector. Many have credited Thomas Jefferson with introducing the breed to America after serving as ambassador to France in the 1780s. The American Kennel Club officially recognized the Briard in 1928. For the right family, the Briard promises to be a responsive, gentle companion who will always be "a dog at heart," as the American Kennel Club standard phrases it.
    In 2015, Colonial Williamsburg welcomed its first official mascot, an 18th-century Briard aptly named Liberty. She is in training to become a therapy dog, and visitors will soon find her walking the streets of the Historic Area with a costumed interpreter or greeting guests at our hotels. As a breed believed to be owned by our Founders, Liberty will add new warmth and vitality to the task of bringing history to life.

    Two years into George Washington's first term as president, Thomas Jefferson wrote of his intention to give a pair of the loyal breed to Washington. The historical record remains silent as to whether either of the "puppies" ever reached the President. But in selecting a Briard to remain at the side of our George Washington, Colonial Williamsburg has chosen to honor Mr. Jefferson's wish.
