The Belgian Sheepdog served as an ambulance dog and messenger and also pulled machine guns during WW1. He actually dates back to the late 1800s where he was involved in dog shows and worked on stud farms. He’s a good performer in events such as obedience, tracking and herding and is an excellent watch dog, herder, companion, guide dog, search and rescue worker and therapy dog. He also uses the names Chien de Berger Belge and Groenendael in some parts of the world. This dog is black but may have some additional white markings. He’s proud and elegant, very intelligent and highly trainable. He behaves when around small children and can live in the suburbs or in a rural setting. His long coat needs weekly brushing and he stands at 22-26 inches high.
