    Thats what i thought! Or a cross Belgian.

    Because the only black ones are Groenies and they are longer coated......

    Yes, that's exactly what I was going to say :). Nice looking dog, though.

    Yes perhaps a cross, although I would say not, the dog has no Belgian features at all really.... which do come through slightly if you know how to look for them.

    She's very much like my sister's first GSD, which was also black shorthaired. Looks a lovely proportioned dog, no exaggerated angulation there at all :)

    If I can work out how to post photos, here's my Belgian Shepherd (Groenendael), Kim. She's 12.

    She's a great looking girl! I would not have placed her as being so old, either!

    Such a great breed, they never really seem to age, and enjoy life til they die.... usually in their teens as well. Do you know anything about her breeding or background?

    lol...I'd be useless working in a pet shop wouldn't I.....Nah...in all honesty I'm not too good at tellin the difference between this breed n that, all I knew is that the person my friend origionally got tex from claimed he was a BS...My friend had him from being young, then like I said, my lad took him on. If I'm honest I tought they where all Alsations and that GSD was just a different name for them lol.
    Ahh...never mind...Tex is a sweet ole softee whatevr he is :) xx

    Alsation was just a name given to German Shepherds during the war when anything German was unpopular

    Thanks! She's on Metacam for arthritis and she sleeps a lot more now but she still likes to play with a tug toy or with my Dalmatian, Poppy.
    I was given her at 10 weeks old after she was returned to her breeder. I have her 5 generation pedigree.

    She's a gorgeous gsd but yeah as you've been told the malinois are the only short coat and they're only brown.

    Lovely bsd can't believe she's 12.
