Question Beaucerons, anyone?

Anyone here own a Beauceron? I thought I remembered some in the forum but I could be wrong. I am considering getting one for my next dog and trying to find Beauceron owners to get more of a feel of what it's like to live with them. I tried contacting the breed club for info but didn't get a response, I've already read as much as I could find but I'm hoping to get info from actual owners as well. I haven't been able to find any in my area, I've met a few at dog shows but that's it.
I'd be interested to know how they compare to GSDs as far as living with them, temperament, personalities, raising them, etc...

My husband wants one. He has been around them before. To him, theyre like super GSDs. More athletic, bigger, smarter, stronger, etc.

I wanted a GSD first, so we have our GSD. When we can afford the initial price, we'll be looking at Beauce breeders again.

Google Chiodo kennels, the owner is very much a Beauceron person and has experience with breeding working Beaucerons-and would be at least one good resource person. She may be able to put you in touch with some owners of working Beaucerons.

I have owned a total of 15 Beaucerons over the last 20 years or so. They are not as much like a GSD as people tend to imagine. They are kind of halfway between a GSD and a Malinois as far as temperament goes. Fun to work though. They are very unforgiving in the face of correction they deem unfair. Much less social than a GSD once they are grown up. Mine would greet guests but would then leave them and come sit by me and look down their nose at them LOL.

Von Stephanitz brings them up in GSD in Word and Picture. I think he is tracing the roots of the sheepdog and through to all these different breeds, up to GSD. Another name is the "Berger de Beauce" or "Sheepdog of Beauce"

I have seen 2 of them, herding sheep, completely ignored me and my dog when we walked over, were engrossed in their work. Took command "BORDER" from a distance of 50 yards. They look very athletic.

I have a friend who travels back and forth to France , (is there as we speak) , does Ring, has a new French bred Malinois , and has had "ring" Beauceron for a long time. We are on the same page when it comes to dogs . They are stable , and responsive . Not all hypered up sporty , they live normal life .

When he gets back I'll ask him what lines he has.
