The Belgian Shepherd Tervuren is one of the four breeds of Belgian Shepherd dogs which may be listed as a variety of the Belgian Shepherd Dog or even as an individual breed. The other three breeds are the Malinois, the Laekenois, and the Groenendael. These were initially made for herding and guarding of sheep. These are considered to be the more attractive than the other three. They were used as draft dogs, messengers and sentry dogs during World War I and World War II; however, presently they are used for farm work and in police departments or even guide dogs.
