Notes
 

The Belgian Shepherd Dog (Tervueren) is a breed of dog, sometimes classified as a variety of the Belgian Shepherd Dog rather than as a separate breed. The Tervueren is recognized in the United States by the AKC and the CKC under the name Belgian Tervuren, but has recently had an official name change to Belgian Shepherd dog, Tervueren.

Appearance

Like all Belgian Shepherds, the Tervueren is a medium-sized, hard-working, square-proportioned dog in the sheepdog family. Males stand between 24 and 26 inches, and weigh approximately 65 lbs. Females are finer and smaller. The Tervueren is recognized by its thick double coat, generally mahogany with varying degrees of black overlay, including a black mask. A small patch of white on the chest is permissable, as well as white tips on toes. Tervueren may also be sable or grey, but this may be penalized in the show ring in some countries according to the standard of the registering body.

Temperament

Excellent family dogs, they have high energy and require a lot of exercise and coat care. They excel at obedience, dog agility, and flyball.
