Tjop was the only registered Tervuren in a litter of registered Malinois. BBA pxxii

The kennels first Tervuren. A typical and very well-built dog, but very palely colored. This color was a persistent trait from his mother's side.
With Tjop de la Brigade and Tosca du Bon Flair, the Brigade kennel entirely dedicated itself to breeding Tervuren. BBA p49

Tjop was considered in Europe to be a major stud in the re-construction of the long-hair-fawn Berger Belge. BBA p125

He was a medium-sized, extremly elegant dog. Like all Tervurens stemming from Malinois, he had a little of that certain "something" which is peculiar to the short-haired variety.

The Malinois Brigade kennel of Mr Van den Eynde, registered its first long-hair-fawn litter in 1947.
Until the 1952-1953 LOSH, Brigade barely registered one long-hair-fawn litter per year. But in the 1952-1953 LOSH Brigade registered 5 long-hair-fawn litters - and then stopped all production! His last litter, the 'B' litter included the American import, Brigadier de la Brigade. BBA pxv
