Belgian Tervuren

Belgian Tervuren, one of four breeds of Belgian sheepherding dogs; it is most closely related to the Groenendael type of Belgian sheepdog, from which it differs mainly in color. The Belgian Tervuren has medium-harsh, long, straight hair. The color ranges from a rich fawn to mahogany, characteristically tipped with black, which is most noticeable on the shoulders and back, the face, the ears, and the tip of the tail. Exceptionally obedient, alert, and intelligent, it makes a fine watchdog. Although it is similar in appearance to the German Shepherd, the breeds differ in size and in the formation of the back and hindquarters. Strong and well muscled, the Belgian Tervuren male stands 61 to 66 cm (24 to 26 in), the female 56 to 61 cm (22 to 24 in). The flattened head has strong, powerful jaws; erect triangular ears; and dark brown, almond-shaped eyes. The breed was officially recognized in 1959.
