MyDogDNA Breed Data: Belgian Shepherds

Working dogs originating from Belgium, Belgian Shepherds were created for herding purposes but are nowadays used in many different dog sports and as military and police working dogs. There are four distinct types of Belgian Shepherds defined by coat colour and texture. The registration of these types varies between countries. In FCI countries, these varieties are called Belgian Shepherd Malinois, Belgian Shepherd Tervueren, Belgian Shepherd Groenendael and Belgian Shepherd Laekenois.

MyDogDNA Breed Data: Jack Russell Terrier vs Parson Russell Terrier

Both Jack Russell Terriers and Parson Russell Terriers are small, white terriers with black and/or brown markings. These breeds were initially created for bolting fox from their dens during hunts. Both breeds have stayed quite true to their original character of being bold, active, highly driven dogs by being excellent family pets at the same time.
