Introduction The origin and evolution of the domestic dog is a rather ambiguous one that is highly debated amongst evolutionary anthropologists. Many question the extent to which domestication has influenced the evolution of the domestic dog due to the ever growing information palaeontologists are discovering.

BOUVIER DES FLANDRES ORIGIN AND HISTORY It is almost impossible to trace the origin of the Bouvier des Flandres. During the last decade of the nineteenth century a program of selective breeding of the dog’s native to Belgium was begun under the guidance of Professor Adolph Reul, a veterinary surgeon and author of “Les Races de Chiens” (1894). The Bouvier is mentioned, “for the most part, a shepherd dog or a dog that resembles him in general make-up but who is bigger, fiercer, more aggressive and has a bolder look.”
In the early 1800’s is when they also had a Collie mate with a Icelandic dog. Which means that the Icelandic dog and the Border Collie makeup Shelties. 1904 the American Kennel Club changed its name to Shetland Sheepdog, because Shelties used to be called Shelties (“History of the breed”). 1911 Shelties were recognized by the American Kennel Club. They also were ranked the 21st most popular dog breed from the American Kennel Club.
They were bred to make a very athletic dog that was also very intelligent. Although they do not have the strongest bite force of domesticated dogs, they also do not have the price tag like the german shepherd or rottweiler. Many breeders like to breed animals for money and do not care who the animals are raised by; this usually causes dogs to end up in the wrong hands. A great alternative to BSL is to make it illegal to breed dogs without proper licensing.
