Belgian Sheepdog / German Shepherd Dog

Bela's full name is Bela Lugosi, after the actor. He is VERY intelligent, very playful and very, very sweet. He loves basketballs - crushing them, that is - hiking, car rides and kisses. He has high separation anxiety and can't stand to be left alone, so we try to take him everywhere we go. Bela's nickname is "Bela Vanilla" because he just LOVES vanilla ice cream. He is just the best dog in the, seriously, he is. All Hail King Bela!! Update: Mar, 25; 2016 - Sadly we had to lay to rest Bela the other day after a long illness. He put up a brave fight, but in the end the illness was just too much, even with strong meds, and he could not even walk at the end. We had no choice but to make that difficult, devastating decision. We're all heartbroken. Goodbye, sweet Bela. There was not a kinder, more gentle dog.

Bela is gorgeous! My friend's dog loves ice cream as well but we give her frozen yoghurt instead because it is slightly healthier. I would love to live with such beautiful dogs with such big personalities like yours. :)

Yes the resemblance to Newton is definitely there!! But your Bela has the most amazing expressive eyes - he is really stunning!!! Looks much more wolf-like than my GSD. You have such a beautiful family - many happy years together!!

Bela means business with those deep yellow eyes. What a handsome man.
Aug 12, 2008 lupinetotem
He is so gorgeous! Is he mixed with wolf? My girl Kyra is actually high-content wolf with very low amounts of husky and malamute in her blood. But wow, your dogs are amazing!

Wow, all of your dogs are beautiful. Sounds like they have a loving family to care for them. Now you need to name dogs Gmork and Falcore to complete the Neverending Story theme. :)
Oct 15, 2008 Muttley
Bela is great, I love him. Muttley gets a little upset when I have to get out of the truck for very long. I know it's part cause he was miss treated and left at the side of the road. I tell him I'll be back but he always acts like it was a week instead of 30 min. Love your bunch, every last one of them.
Oct 20, 2008 jacksallylover

Bela is extremely pretty. I can't believe how many comments she has already. I mean some dogs on the front page don't even make that many comments. Oh and I will try to comment on all of your dogs. Because there are so many one a day should do the trick. Have a great time with your Bela.

Goodness gracious, Bela is one handsome boy... but I think I would be scared to death if I met him in alley! (not that I frequent alleys, lol!). You must feel very well protected with all your big, beautiful babies ;o)
Jun 8, 2009 Kavik

He's gorgeous! He looks just all Shepherd :P Belgian is a surprise! My new Dutch Shepherd's mother is a German Shepherd but she looks all Dutch :P Looks can be decieving~
Aug 24, 2009 Denvir
He's obviously very intelligent, Belgian Sheepdog's are as intelligent as the Border Collie and Australian Cattle Dog. He is as gorgeous as a jet black Labrador Retriever in the sunset in winter. He looks as though he has allot of fun with your other dogs, I keep checking back with all of your dogs to see if any more pictrues have been added. :P I love all of them so much, you're a great photographer, and the dogs who choose you are all so gorgeous and loyal, despite maybe being a little to playful. Haha, I love Bela, I love his name too. Not sure how it'd be pronounced, Bella or something else. However it's pronounced, it doesn't matter. He's gorgeous and the name suites him well. Come check out my three girls when you have the time. =]

what a cute family you ve got here
Dec 28, 2009 border collie mom
I love this shot! They are all looking to their pack leader for instructions.... or treats! LOL There are 3 huskies that come to my dog park and they really give Lucy a work out when we are there. She can outrun them but they do have a tendency to triple team her and gang up. We keep an eye on them since they are all males and she's the only girl there at times. They play really rough but so does she so they have a good time....until they catch her.Thankfully their owner calls them off then. :-) Absolutely gorgeous dogs you have.

Jan 30, 2010 dogs are best
So I see I am not the only one who loves to be surrounded by beautiful dogs : )Some people think we are nuts , but i wouldnt live any other way , my dogs are better to me than some people i can think of !! The unconditional love cannot be replaced by anything, and my 2 Labby girls and the Boston sleep with us in our king sized bed , and i feel very safe that way : ) Also very loved !! Sure its expensive to feed them the good food i use , but their coats and teeth look fantastic !! i love my furkids so much : ) you sure do have a magnificent family , and i commend you for keeping them all : ) xoxo
