Belgian sheepdog Description
  The Belgian Sheepdog has a wire coat that gives it its most unique appearance. The rough coat can be over two inches long. The muzzle and head are fringed, giving it a shaggy, woolly look. The long bushy tail has dense hair, but no distinct feathering and reaches at least to the hock. Its body is well proportioned and sturdy. Its hindquarters are muscular, without looking heavy and the front legs are very straight and parallel to each other. It has round, cat-like feet. Dewclaws may be removed from the front legs, but should be removed from the back legs. The chest is neither broad or narrow, but is deep, reaching to the elbows. Its ears are small and set high on the head and its eyes are dark and the rims contrast with lighter color hair. The skull is flat and parallel to the plain of the muzzle, which tapers, but is not excessively pointy. The nose is black and the lips should be tight. Its teeth meet in a scissors or level bite.
