The Belgian Tervuren is classified in the Herding Group. His coat is moderately harsh, considerately long, and colored rich fawn to mahogany with black overlay. The male is 24-26 inches tall, with males 23 inches or over 26 ½ inches as a disqualification. The females are 22-24 inches in height when measured at the withers. Their ears are generally pointing straight up; floppy ears are a disqualification in the show ring. They are medium sized dogs, solid but not bulky. They tend to be jealous for affection from those they know well, suspicious of strangers but not to attack unprovoked.
