Overview
Originating in Belgium, this breed was developed for the herding and guarding of sheep. The Belgian Shepherd Malinois is one of four breeds of Belgian Shepherds and was the first of the four to establish the "type". Although very popular in their native country as police dogs, they are quite rare in the United States.
Character
A medium to large sized breed, the Belgian Shepherd Malinois is squarely-built, muscular, and elegant in appearance. They are agile, alert, powerful, and impressive.
Temperament
The Belgian Shepherd Malinois is not recommended for inexperienced or first time dog owners. They are loyal, protective, and attentive. This breed typically bonds closely to one family member. They are wary and suspicious of strangers and will guard and protect their family, property, and territory. They do well with children they have been raised with but may not tolerate unfamiliar children. It is important that the Belgian Shepherd Malinois are never engaged in chasing games, tug-of-war, or rough-house play. This breed does well with dogs they have been raised with but are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. This is a no-nonsense breed that must be taken seriously by their owner.
Care
Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary so that no damage occurs to the coat. Belgian Shepherd Malinois's are prone to such health issues as cancer, thyroid problems, hip and elbow dysplasia, PRA, epilepsy, and anesthesia sensitivity.
Coat
The Belgian Shepherd Malinois is a double coat breed. The outer coat is weather-resistant, straight, short, and hard. The under coat is dense. The hair around the neck, on the tail, and backs of the thighs is somewhat longer.
Training
The Belgian Shepherd Malinois is highly intelligent and obedient. They are very demanding and dominant. Early, intense, and ongoing socialization and obedience is an absolute must. This breed will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, consistency, and reward.
Activity
The Belgian Shepherd Malinois breed requires an inordinate amount of physical exercise and mental stimulation. They are not recommended for city or apartment living. The Belgian Shepherd Malinois does best in a rural setting with a job to do and ample room to safely roam and run. They excel in Schutzhund, bomb and narcotics detection, tracking, and herding.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Belgian Shepherd Malinois puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Yes. All dogs can get what is called 'The Zoomies'. And yes again, Mal's are great dogs as they know the difference between family fun time and when they are doing their job.

The same breed would be a great friend for your dog! If you want another breed of dog, the best thing to do is to write down your dogs characteristic's and the types of dogs your dog plays with happily at the dog park and go from there.

I have a 3 yr old cat who only 1 yr ago lost her buddy, our 14 yr old dog that was a retreiver mix. How well will a Malinois do with a cat normally?

The Belgian Shepherd Malinois will most likely do well as long as you find one that has the same character. Which would be lazy and likes to relax vs playfull and jumpy. To determine this you should to play with the dog first. Also you might want to buy a 4 to 5 year old dog if your cat is lazy. I know this beacause I have one and they do not really mello with age.

maybe it really depends on how the dog was raised on his first year of age... some dogs remain playful and some they change as they age... my dog hates cat...be barks on it whenenver he see one... my dog is already old but still he never changed his feelings about cats... hahahaha

Ours is a belgian shepherd rott mix. Super sweet and intelligent, but over protective, moody, almost all family members were bitten when touched on a bad mood. Very teritorial, every that she lays her eyes on, she thinks that's hers. but the dog is very loving even to cats.

I am a firm believer in: you can have any dog, it is the way you treat your dog, time you spend with it, socialize and train it, that makes the difference😀

I have a Shepherd mix (looks like a Belgian) she's 5.5 months old and has large floppy ears. At what age would they become pricked if it's part of her breed?
