Dog of the Day: Sofie the Tervuren Belgian Shepherd

Apparently ‘Tervuren’, which was a new one on me, refers to the coloration and fur type. Another description of the coloration and fur type would be ‘gorgeous’.

I found this pup out on the Embarcadero with her dad. I reached out to pet her and she immediately retreated behind dad and peered out at me mistrustfully. And I thought, ‘wow, a shy Belgian shepherd!’ So I started snapping a few pictures, and kneeled down to get a picture on the level with her, at which time she came over and stuck her nose in my face and licked my camera. So, well, if she’s shy, she sure isn’t shy for long.

Stuck a second picture below the break.

Belgian Shepherds are one of those breeds that you just want to hug. Or maybe lie down and cuddle with in front of a fireplace.

Also, like the corgi, I bet you could put together enough shed fluff from this gal to make another three Belgian shepherds every month.
