Belgian Malinois

My wife and I were Leary on getting a puppy through a website after being scammed before. We lost $2600.00 trying to get a puppy and he never came. Puppy spot was on point and made us very comfortable in purchasing our new baby. We are now a complete family. We can't thank you enough!!!

Belgian Malinois Characteristics

Often mistaken for the German Shepherd, the confident and versatile Belgian Malinois is a top-notch worker who is quick to form a tight bond with the humans in its life. Whether herding or assisting those in the police and armed forces, the Belgian Malinois craves purpose and direction but is also capable of being a loving member of the family.

Standing at a moderate 22-26 inches to the shoulder and weighing anywhere between 40-80 lbs, the Belgian Mal is one of the larger herding dogs. These dogs are commonly found in blue, black, and white coats.  Often mistaken for the German Shepherd, the Belgian Malinois is smaller and stands with a slightly different profile. Those who work with the dogs often claim the Belgian Malinois is more responsive than the German Shepherd, which may make them easier for newer dog owners.

Because they're herding dogs, Belgian Malinois are a perfect match for active families or individuals. They have a joyful abundance of energy and a longing for purpose. Their families should be aware that if the Belgian Malinois is kept inside all day with no opportunity to spend their energy, they will often act out and become destructive. However, those who are able to accommodate the breed's active tendencies will find a responsive and loving companion.

The Malinois is a breed developed to protect the herd. They’ll be extremely dedicated, loyal companions. If you want them to be friendly with other dogs, make sure you focus on proper socialization and early obedience training. These dogs are considered to be good with children, but if their herding instincts are not addressed early on, they may have a tendency to nip at the children's heels and attempt to herd them while playing. But when trained properly, they’re loving, affectionate, and protective in the right ways.
