Are Belgian Tervuren's 'shy' & a bit snobbish? Mine is 6 years old and he totally ignores about 90% of the dogs he meets, even cute females! I have come to believe he thinks of himself as being a step higher than other dogs & believes he is more human than k9! Anyone familiar with that behavior?

I'm not sure about why your dog might be doing this... though I think Belgians are definitely a step above, so he might be right about that! ;-) My Tervuren male is tail wagging happy to meet anyone, human, animal or bird, and loves to play with anyone who will! He's got a terrific temperament and socializes well, and that is a big blessing! Your dog might be more shy, making him reserved acting, or he may not have been socialized extensively as a pup, resulting in this behavior as an adult. But, no, in my experience this isn't really a breed thing... more personal, I'd say! Hope this helps, Elizabeth K.
