Overview
The Berger Blanc Suisse shares its origins with both the White Shepherd and the White German Shepherd. All three of these breeds were developed from the white-coat line of the German Shepherd Dog during the early 20th century. The first German Shepherds bred for their white coat were seen in Germany during the 1880s but it wasn't until the early 20th century that a dedicated breeding program for white-coated German Shepherd Dogs appeared. The White Shepherd was officially recognized by the UKC in 1999 and the White German Shepherd Dog is recognized by the AKC. It wasn't until 2001 that the Berger Blanc Suisse was accepted on a provisional basis by the Federation Cynologique Internationale and it was officially accepted in 2011. Switzerland was the first country to officially recognize the White Shepherd as a distinct breed, which is why it is credited as the country of origin and the name was changed to White Swiss Shepherd (Berger Blanc Suisse) in many countries to reflect this. The White Swiss Shepherd was awarded provisional recognition as a breed by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) on November 26, 2002 as the Berger Blanc Suisse. The provisional status was changed to official recognition on July 5th, 2011 and the Berger Blanc Suisse breed is eligible for CACIB as of July 6th, 2011. The White Swiss Shepherd / White Shepherd popularity as a recognized breed has been growing rapidly throughout Europe and has even returned back to Germany, from which its roots began, and is acknowledged by the SV as a separate breed and not a white German Shepherd Dog.
