The Belgian Shepherd is a breed of medium- to large-sized herding dogs. It originated in Belgium and is similar to other sheep-herding dogs from that region, including the Dutch Shepherd, the German Shepherd, the Briard, and others.
Belgian Sheepdogs shed year-round and require 15 to 20 minutes of brushing weekly.
Belgian Sheepdogs can get along well with other dogs and cats if they’re raised with them, but they have a chase instinct and will go after animals that run from them. They also have strong herding and protection instincts.
