The Belgian Tervuren is a large, well built dog with a handsome yet rather sharp looking face. The coat of these dogs is long, straight, and thick, and the coloring includes fawn, red, or gray, with a black mask and black tipped hairs. The ears of the Belgian Tervuren stand erect, and he has a very alert and intelligent expression. The lustrous double coat of this dog does shed throughout the year, although the heaviest shedding is in the spring and autumn. The height of the Belgian Tervuren is around 22-26 inches, and these dogs weigh in at around 45-80 pounds.

The Belgian Tervuren is a graceful and agile dog with a well balanced personality. These dogs have plenty of power and energy, and are alert and intelligent. You will find that the Belgian Tervuren makes a loyal and devoted pet. Training should not prove difficult, as this is an intelligent dog with a high learning rate and an eagerness to please. The Belgian Tervuren is not the right choice of those with little time to dedicate to a pet, as they can get easily bored if neglected, and this can lead to behavioral problems. You should provide your Belgian Tervuren with plenty of exercise, as well as mental stimulation, to reduce the risk of boredom. Consistent training and early socialization is important with this breed in order to promote a more stable, confident personality. They can be very suspicious, and are wary around strangers. The strong herding instincts of the Belgian Tervuren means that he may try and herd people and animals by nipping at them.

This breed has a very protective streak, and this makes him a good watchdog. He tends to get along well with older, gentle children, and should be okay with other household pets when properly socialized. Care should be taken around smaller pets such as cats and rabbits, as the Belgian Tervuren may see them as prey. This breed is best suited to those with more experience in dog ownership, as he can be stubborn and something of a challenge when it comes to training. However, for the right owner or family - those that enjoy an active lifestyle and have a confident manner - this breed can make a wonderful pet and companion.

The Belgian Tervuren originates from Begium, and is one of four varieties of Belgian Shepherd Dog. These dogs were originally bred for the herding and guarding of sheep, and the breed was registered with the AKC in 1912, but was registered as the Belgian Sheepdog until 1959.
The life expectancy of the Belgian Tervuren is 12-14 years. There are various health problems and issues that are associated with this breed, and this includes elbow dysplasia and HD, thyroid problems, cataracts, and epilepsy. You should ensure that the parents of your Belgian Tervuren puppy have OFA and CERF certificates.
