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.

The Belgian Tervuren is named for the Belgian village of Tervuren, home to M.F Corbeel, an early breeder who is credited with breeding the foundation stock. A famous fawn Tervuren, Milsart, became the breed’s first Belgian show champion in 1907.
