These Belgian dogs were a combination of herding and guard dogs. They were and are loved in Belgium, but not easily found outside of the small country. Recently, they have received a great deal of popularity as police dogs around the world.
These dogs are smart, really smart. They have tons of energy to go along with that intelligence. They must have tasks and exercises to occupy their day or they can get destructive. They are reserved with strangers and can be aggressive at times. They are always on the move, even in confined spaces, like a shark. Absolutely not a good dog for small kids.
