This is Louie - but what breed is he?

 Louie came in to see us recently with a poorly ear.
 
His owners kindly sent us this photo to show us just how big he is! But what breed is he?
 
The answer is below the photo...
 
 
 
 
Louie is..... a Briard, and he weighs over 40kg (over 6 stone). Briards are long-coated dogs and were originally from France where traditionally they were used as sheep herding dogs. They come in a variety of colours, most commonly black or fawn.
