Belgian Shepherd Dog - Laekenois

The four varieties of Belgian Shepherd, Groenendael, Laekenois, Malinois and Tervueren, vary only in coat colour and type. 

All four types are graceful, purposeful, working dogs which require adequate amounts of physical and mental exercise into which their considerable intelligence and energy can be channelled. 

Belgian Shepherds have found gainful employment as service dogs for police and armed forces. Observant, courageous, devoted and trainable they are not suited to inactive lifestyles or inexperienced owners.

The Laekenois type, still rare in the UK, has a short wiry coat that is reddish fawn in colour.
