Just wanted to add another KUDOS to the OP for trying to educate this owner. Hopefully she'll listen. Even changing one person's mind makes a difference!

actually the original poster said the dog was a purebred correct? and yes I was referring to the Belgians,,there are no "Belgiums"..

Sounds like a Belgian Sheepdog/Groendal, even with a shorter coat, if it's young, sometimes their coats really don't come in full until maturity, also since there are 4 varieties, if mal is somewhere in the backround (in Europe the 4 varieties can interbreed, they are considered one breed over there),
could be the reasoning.

Keep talking to her, good for you!

Sorry for not realising the spelling of "Belgian" but this is what i meant.

But she said that she was told the dog is Purebred Belgium, She saw both parents and one is Belgium, the other German, wouldn't that make the dog a Cross breed?

Also i didn't state that the dog is Purebred....I was in fact asking b/c i don't know if she would be considered Purebred.

It sounds like she may have a Black Malinois on her hands.. unshowable in Conformation - but can make a good working dog.
She *could* also have a black GSD.

BUT if its a German/Belgian cross.. you are just ASKING for health issues!!

Where did she get that pup from?

I'm SOOo glad that you have persuaded her out of breeder her though!

No need to mix up yet another fine working dog (Belgians) to the BYBs!

There really is no "belgium shepherd",, the dog is most likely a German Shepherd, maybe bred in Belgium? ancestors from Belgium? But there is no
"breed" called Belgium Shepherd,
A Belgian Sheepdog and a Gronendael are the EXACT same variety. Not sure if you knew that or not? There IS such breed as a Belgian SHepherd in the AKC - Belgian Shepherd is the Tervuren variety. I own one, but hes from the CKC so he is a "vatiety". Mature coats dont grow in until they are around 1yr old as well.
In the CKC all Belgians can interbreed. Its only really "acceptable" for a showable Belgian to breed the Tervs and Grons together though. If you breed a Laek to another - you'll get an unshowable litter for conformation, if you breed a Gron-Mal you will get an unshowable litter for conformation. If you breed a Terv - Mal - you'll get short coated Tervs or reg. Mals.

Summer............she got her from a BYB, but then she was none the wiser when buying her that it was wrong to buy from a BYB.

I really should take some photos of her to post.
I will do that next time i go over there.
