The first standard that was drawn up in 1912 for the Bouvier des Flandres created a great interest in the breed. A large number of the Bouvier des Flandres dogs were, however, lost during the First World War, when they served as ambulance and messenger dogs. A dog named Ch. Nic de Sottegem survived the war and proved to have great quality. All the modern Bouviers are descendants of this dog.
