The long haired "other than black" Belgian Shepherds are known as Tervueren today, and Tom and Poes are regarded as their foundation couple.
When bred together in 1895, they produced one known offspring, Miss, sold to Charles Danhieux, who also lived in Tervueren.
Mr Danhieux bred Miss to the black Duc de Groenendael, son of Picard d'Uccle and Petite, the foundation couple for the Groenendael variety of the Belgian Shepherd Dogs, and in 1897 two puppies were born who were to play a significant role in both Groenendael and Tervueren history. One offspring, Diane, a long haired black, remained with Mr Danhieux, and her descendants, resulting from litters with Picard d'Uccle and with his son, Pitt, are to be found in modern Groenendael and Tervueren genealogies. The other offspring, a charcoaled fawn long hair named Milsart, was sold to Mr F Cloetens of Tervueren, and played a predominant role in the early production of this variety. Hist of Terv p2

Before 1909 only one fawn breeder stands out: Mr Danhieux, who produced the famous fawn Dick. He also owned the equally famous bitch, Miss, a daughter of the long-hair-fawn foundation couple of Tom and Poes. Like most other Belgian breeders, he also owned and bred other Berger Belge varieties (Groenendael) and inter-bred the varieties. BBA pxii
