The Dutch Shepherd, native to Holland, was originally a sheepdog, and was also used by Dutch farmers as a general purpose farm dog. Currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity in its homeland, it is also being used as a companion and guard dog.

This medium tall breed is very similar in physical characteristics to the Belgian Sheepdog. The coat comes in three varieties: long and short which can be brindle gray or brown; and rough which can be blue-gray; salt and pepper; silver-brindle; and gold-brindle.
