Belgian Tervuren

Bred as a general purpose herding and guard dog, the Belgian Tervuren has a strong protective instinct. One of four types of Belgian sheepherding dogs, this breed is distinguished by his medium-long fawn-and-black coat, which should be brushed twice weekly. Intelligent and devoted, the Belgian Tervuren is a loving dog that excels as a therapy dog and companion to the disabled.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living if sufficiently exercised
