The Tervuren (pronounced /tərˈvjɜrɛn/, and sometimes spelled Tervueren), is a member of the Belgian Shepherd Dog family of dog breeds.

Its classification varies, being classified under some breed standards as a breed in its own right, and in others as one of several acceptable variations of the Belgian. It is usually listed within breed standards under one or other, or a combination, of these names.

In the United States, since 1960, the AKC recognizes it under the name Belgian Tervuren. Prior to that date, all recognized varieties of the Belgians were called Belgian Sheepdog.
