Mental Health Break: Video

Footage from a 1922 dog show in Amsterdam showing many different breeds.  The video is in black and white with Dutch text identifying the breeds.  It’s 12 minutes long and there is no audio.  Enjoy!

  1. I’m wondering what that Fransche Herdershond would be called in English, and is that type of dog still around? And I really want one of the Matin Belgische trekhond. It looked just like a Rottweiler, but in other colors than black and tan, which would make it easier in interactions with silly people who think Rotties are scary.

    Dang, I just spent time looking and found it was called the Belgian Mastiff, used as a drover and carting dog, but the breed disappeared after WW2. That is a real shame.

    I was impressed to see that the Ruwharige Belgische Herdershond back then is a lovely example of an old-style Laekenois Belgian Shepherd, and the Hollandsche Herdershond shows us what an original Dutch Shepherd looked like.

    Thanks, Shirley, that was really nice, and even educational!
