These dogs have been around as long as any breed, originally as flock guardians. They became castle guardians in France in the Middle Ages. They did not come to prominence in America until the Great Depression.

While bonding tightly to the family, this breed is not very social otherwise.  They are gentle but can challenge for dominance if there is any question about who is in charge. They are fairly independent and will bark.
