    I definitely see German Shepherd Dog and Collie, I don't see Belgian Tervuren but I may also see Border Collie, or Golden Retriever.

    If you really want to know. You can buy a DNA kit from We are thinking of doing it for the big pretty mastiff we got out of the shelter. That is the cheapest I have seen. Most vets want alot of $. You just swab and send it in :) don't think it looks like that breed, maybe a cross of two others.?

    GSD's and Terv's are very similar dogs, as well as Belgian Malanois. Personally, I can see German Shephard, as well Tervuren for the long hair & shep coloring. As well as maybe Australian Shepherd (for the color pattern & fluffiness) or Collie (as in Lassie) for the long nose and head profile. But that can also come from GSDs. So a recap- German Shephard or Tervuren, Collie, Aussie Shepherd. Either way, you got a dog with STRONG herding instinct and prey drive!! All very smart breeds though.

    I think it does look like he could be part belguim teruven. But a cross between a shepard and a collie could be what he is too. It is almost to close to call. He is adorable though, whatever he is. I was giving the wrong info for sure on Bandit when I adopted him it happens.
