Please help. We are thinking of getting one.
A Picardy Shepherd... a rather rare breed... high-strung, needs LOTS of stimulation and room to run, coat is not the easiest to maintain... You'll want to research them a LOT before you get one, and be perpared to pay a chunk for him/her, as they're in more demand because of the movie.
they are also called "Berger De Picard". not only should you expect to pay a good chunk of change for one, chances are you'll have to buy one from overseas. you'll be hard pressed to find a breeder in the US.
OR...you can adopt/rescue one of the many, many look-a-likes to Winn Dixe. My Rockie looks kind of like Winn Dixe (when she isn't full of mud):
Well I thought that it was a mix dog. Guess that shows how little I know.
Zeus - 4yr Bichon
Candy - 3yr Bichon
Max - 1yr Yorkie
And of course my precious girls and Hubby
Whatever the breed, make sure that you carry out TONS of research. Choosing a dog because you saw one on a film is a really bad idea.
here is a link about them:

Thanks Guys! We'll do A LOT of research!
Best answer to this question is right here. Rockie is every bit as beautiful as the Winn Dixie dog or even more beautiful!!!!Originally Posted by JustJo
