Cobby

It's a funny word. In dog terminology, it means "short, compact; well ribbed up."

Mystery sentence from unidentified book:

In appearance, the bouvier is a rugged, powerfully built dog, cobby in body, with a rough and somewhat tousled coat.

The book tells that the word bouvier means cowherd or ox drover.
