As the name implies, the Belgian Sheepdog is a sheep-herding dog from Belgium. During World War I they were used extensively on the battlefield as message carriers, ambulance dogs, and for pulling machine guns. The breed was first seen here in 1907. True to their origins, they continue to be successful herders, as well as excelling in many of today’s competitive activities. They are prized for their intelligence, desire to learn and work as a partner with their owners, and for their agile, efficient working structure. They are devoted companions and willing to give their all to those they love.
