Belgian Shepherd: Belgian Shepherd

The Belgian Shepherd Dog is a medium-to-large size dog, closely resembling the popular German Shepherd breed apart from the hindlegs. The Belgian Shepherd dog is the only breed in the world that comes in four varieties: the long-haired black ‘Groenendael’, the long-haired fawn, red or grey ‘Tervueren’, the short-coated red, fawn or grey ‘Malinois’ and the rarer rough-coated reddish fawn ‘Laekenois’. Originating from Belgium, they are named after the areas in Belgium from which they came Groenendael, Tervuren, Malinois and Laeken. (Irish Kennel Club and Wikipedia)
