Belgian Malinois Breed Info
The Belgian Malinois dog. Our clients often call them “fur babies” or “the best friend they have ever had” and that means a lot to us. We don’t just sell dogs. We place them with people who need protection but also want a family member who shares in their life daily. Own a Belgian Malinois once and you’ll never have another breed. Well bred Belgian Malinois are hard to find. Search the web and you’ll find 50 German Shepherds compared to one, quality Malinois for sale. Narrow it further by accepting only a quality dog and it becomes even harder to find the Belgian Malinois.
The Belgian Malinois is also known as the Belgian Shepherd. There are 4 breeds which fall into the Belgian Shepherd category. Wolfsbane K9 breeds and sells standard colored and rare solid black Belgian Malinois only. Keep in mind that the FCI does not recognize the black coloration as a “true Malinois” but people still come to us in high numbers for them. They are beautiful.
The Belgian Malinois has been gaining prominance for the last few years. Just a few years ago the breed didn’t show up in the top 100 breeds registered by the AKC. Today the Malinois ranks at number 60 on the list. One must also consider that the majority of Belgian Malinois are not even AKC registered.
One thing to remember is that the Belgian Malinois comes in several colors or a mix of them such as fawn, sable, red, brown and black. Wolfsbane K9 leans toward a dark sable color with a heavy black mask mostly from KNPV parents. Some have almost black eyes while others have brown or even golden eyes. The ears are pointed and stand on their own as the dog matures
They’re known by many as the dog that helped take terrorist Osama bin Laden as well as other terrorist down and this caused a spike in the number of people who wanted to own one. In addition White House videos showing the dogs working for the Secret Service have also gained plenty of interest in the breed. And, don’t forget the countless movies they are now in such as John Wick and the Navy Seals TV show. We see more folks now who recognize the breed if we take them with us to stores, the park etc. At one time they were not even in the top 100 registered breeds with the AKC and now the breed ranks in the 60s. It must also be noted that 80% or more of Belgian Malinois in America are not registered. No matter how popular they become this is no reason to own one of these dogs. You need to be fully committed to training and learning.
