Tervueren Belgian shepherd puppy
The tervueren Belgian shepherd likes to protect and work with his master. They may not like strangers that come to the house, or other animals. They should be trained and socialised from a young age. They make good watch dogs, guide dogs, and police dogs. Puppies that are destined to be guide dogs, need to be carefully socialised from puppyhood.
These dogs like wide open spaces and going for walks. They need a lot of input from the owner.
Tervuerens have luxurious coats, with a mane of long hair found the neck, and flowing tails. Regular brushing is recommended.
Colour: brown or grey with black mask and a long coat
