Belgian Tervuvren:   This Breed is a guard and herding dog one of the four
varieties of the Belgian Shepherd dogs. They look much in appearance like
a long haired German Shepherd.  Their fur is long and dense.  They have
a mahogany to fawn with black overlay coat.  These dogs are quite adaptable
and require early training and socialization.  They are popular showdogs.

Malinois:   This breed is another of the Belgian Shepherds, they have a shorter
coat than the Tervuvren.  They are very popular as police dogs. They have
the same temperament as the Tervuvren and the German Shepherd.

Groendendael or The Belgian Sheepdog: This breed has a striking face they are
very alert, need early socialization yet are loyal to their family.  The coat is solid
black.  They are a long haired dog.  This breed needs to be with their family they
can have separation anxiety and be destructive.  They need exercise and daily

The Shetland Sheepdog:  Also known as the Sheltie. These are a dog that look
like miniature rough coated collies.  They are very good family pets.  They have
thick coats in sable and white, tri colored and blue merle. 

We had one when I was growing up her name was Sable.  She was so
intelligent she looked like she would smile at you.  She was terrified of thunder though.

King Shepherd: The foundation stock of this breed is German Shepherd, Alaskan Malamute, and
Great Pyrenees.  They are a large breed.  They are sometimes known as Giant German Shepherds.
They look much like a German Shepherd in appearance however they are bred in both long and
short hair varieties.  These dogs are large and quite active so they need quite a lot of exercise
and training.
