The Laeken is considered the oldest of the four varieties of Belgian Shepherd Dogs.

The Bouvier and Dutch Shepherd also trace their pedigrees back to the fawn wire-haired shepherd dog, Vos I de Laeken, who was born in 1885. At that time the Laekens were used for herding and protection. They proved to be excellent guards for the flax fields of Flanders.

One of the early Belgian breeders used to graze his flock of sheep in the Brussels area, on the grounds of the Chateau de Laeken. His shepherd dogs had rough, wiry coats and were admired by Queen Marie Henriette. They became the favorite of the Queen and were given the name, Laeken, after the castle.
