Born in 2005, Dice lives with her family in The Villages, Florida. She comes from a long line of champions and is a gorgeous example of the Bouvier des Flandres breed.
Originating in Southwest Flanders and on the French northern plain, the Bouvier des Flanders was bred to be an all-around farm hand serving as a cattle herder, guard, and draft dog. The ability to perform a variety of tasks was more important than looks or pedigree; thus, the Bouvier we see today is derived from several diverse breeds possibly even including mastiffs, sheepdogs, and spaniels. The double coat, which served to protect the hard-working dogs in harsh climates, can range in color from fawn to black.
Dice pays attention
while this young girl reads a good story.
The Bouvier is typically a devoted companion, fearless and protective. With regular exercise, it is calm and well-mannered indoors but always ready for an adventure in the great outdoors.
Dice has learned a lot from having books read to her. She could be Professor Dice here!
With her best pal, Howard, Dice not only visits the tri-county libraries but also bookstores and senior citizen facilities. Dice's great size and shaggy coarse fur bring smiles to everyone she greets.
