Belgian Laekenois

The Belgian Laekenois is a hybrid breed of shepherd. As the name states, this breed originates in Belgium. The history behind the Laekenois is pretty fascinating. These animals are quite keen in regards to their senses. They have elite anticipatory skills, and it comes paired with unabated love for their owners.

Interestingly enough, this breed — commonly used to herd livestock — has been traditionally utilized in the arena of warfare. The Belgian army uses them today, and they were also used during World War II. Additionally, Laekenois also serves the purpose as both a guard dog and as a police dog for many in the current climate.
