Malinois Belgian Shepherd


The malinois is one of the four coat types of Belgian shepherd. They originated in Belgium, and different breeders liked different colours, so the Malinois is now distinct from the Tervuren, Lakenois, & Groenendael. Malinois is a Belgian name - the internet has audio files on how to pronounce it, eg  ma-luhn-waa. The emphasis is on the first syllable. They are  highly intelligent and have been trained to help with law-enforcement for example, anti-poaching.

This is an energetic breed that does best in a household that is physically active - involved in dog training - or at least taking the dog out for long runs each day. They can climb and jump so a high fence is needed to keep them in the yard.

The black face can give the dog an intimidating appearance, so burglars will think twice about climbing the fence!
