The energetic and intelligent Belgian Tervuren loves to be where the action is.
Harley believes that someday, if he jumps high enough, he really will make it all the way up the tree to chase that squirrel with the blonde tail across the treetops. That's because Belgian Tervuren are optimists with a zest for life and the belief that they can and should be in on everything.
"This is not a lie-by-the-fireside kind of dog," says Janina Laurin, a Belgian Tervuren breeder and American Kennel Club dog show judge in Danbury, Conn. "This is a very interactive breed. When the phone rings, they will help you answer it. When you take a bath, they want to be in there with you. They are happy to help clean your counters and dinner plates, and those belonging to your guests. Part of what what makes them so adorable is their curiosity and their desire to please."
