The type of a dog in the TV series Person of Interest is the Dutch Shepherd breed. This is a breed of dog, which has dark eyes and a longer muzzle and a flat forehead.

It is actually a Belgian Malinois. Though you are not far off, they are very closely related, the difference is mostly the coat color, Dutchies are brindle or black, while Mals are usually fawn with a black mask or entirely black. Dutch shepherds are believed by some to be derived from Mals, or to be just a brindle strain of Malinois. The dogbreedinfo website is bogus, those are Belgium shepherds.

It is a very typy Belgian Malinois. I have a smaller matching one lying next to me right now :-) It was very accurate in the first episode how the dog chewed up all the bearer bonds, that is exactly what I would expect from most of the Mals I've seen. These dogs make terrible pets but they are great to work with.

It IS a Belgian Malinois. You can look it up on breeder's site, who provides two dogs who play "Bear" the dog on Person of Interest. A more simple name some use is "Belgian Shepard Dog", but Malinois is most correct name (NOT same as Dutch Shepard) :)
