Belgian Sheepdogs

Kadar Belgians

The Belgian Sheepdog, also known as the Groenendael, can trace itís origin back to the late 1800ís. The long haired black Belgian Sheepdog owes itís existence to Nicolas Rose, who purchased what is considered to be the foundation Belgians. The Belgian Sheepdog is a versatile dog. From the beginning, they were used as herding dogs. They were also used during both WW1 and WW2 as messenger carriers, along with other duties in the battlefield.  

The Belgian Sheepdog is a well-balanced, medium-sized, black dog, elegant in appearance with a proud carriage of head and neck.  He is alert, agile, and full of life.  He can run like the wind and stop on a dime. With a quick witted sense of humor and unusual ingenuity, the Belgian Sheepdog makes an ideal companion for a family of many interests and talents to train and live with.

Today, the Belgian can be seen performing in all AKC events ranging from herding to agility to conformation.
