A brief description
The name Belgian Shepherd Dog can refer to any of the four varieties of this breed: the Groenendael, the Laekenois, the Tervueren, or the Malinois.
In Australia the Belgian Shepherd Dog is classed as One Breed, which consists of Four Varieties; in some countries, they are considered a single breed. Structurally all four varieties are the same, differing only in coat and colour, all four varieties are intelligent dogs of the same general size and temperament.
The Groenendael - long haired black.
Note: They are sometimes born with short white/grey hairs on the front of the muzzle and or tip of the chin, which is called "frost" or "frosting". When two dogs of the same "variety" are bred, it is possible for puppies of different "varieties" to be in the same litter, depending on what genes for coat colour they carry. (An excellent book on the History, Genetics and Varieties is the BERGER BELGE ANTHOLOGY by Sally M. Perry & Adrienne A. Pagel)
