Two herding dogs of Belgian origins: the Belgian Sheepdog and the Belgian Tervuren.

Belgian Sheepdog

This breed is also called the Groenendael. Its origins go back to Brussels in the late 19th century. Besides herding, Belgian Sheepdogs have also identified themselves on the battlefields during World War I, as police dogs, and in border-patrol work. Here is a good-looking, strong, and well-muscled animal, square in appearance having an exceedingly proud carriage of head and neck. His black weather-resistant coat is particularly long like a collarette around the neck, with abundant long peripheries down the backs of the front legs and on the

breeches and tail.

WEIGHT: 55-70 pounds
HEIGHT: males 24-26 inches; females 22-24 inches
COLOR: black.


Belgian Tervuren

The Belgian

Tervuren was bred for herding abilities from the same European working stock as the Belgian Sheepdog and Malinois. Excluding coat color, he is alike in conformation to the Belgian Sheepdog. He is a graceful, medium-size dog, square in appearance. He bears a long, well-chiseled head, having strong and powerful jaws, dark brown eyes, and upright ears. He can also protect his master's person and property without being excessively aggressive.

WEIGHT: 55-70 pounds
HEIGHT: males 24-26 inches; females 22-24 inches
