History

The Malinois is one of the 4 belgian shepherd varieties, its name comes from the Belgian city of Mechelen (Mechelen Dutch, French Malines), town that saw it born.

The first standard of this variety was written by Professor Reul, of the Club du Chien de Berger Belge, to be adopted in 1892. The appearance, skills and most of the physical characteristics outlined in this standard, they are almost identical to the current. Its origins are the same as those of wire-haired dogs.

This variety, little known, of Belgian Shepherd is a breed of utility par excellence and is very appreciated by trainers of dogs work and people who participate in various tests of competition as Schutzhund.

In addition to his civilian facet as a competitive "athlete", It is also frequently used by the armed forces, for example the Mexican army who used it to attack.

They are very popular in Belgium, France and America, the first Malinois they arrived in United States in 1907, to be used by the police, due to its temperamental characteristics.

Currently the Malinois It has been a better option for the election of the army and police, unlike the German Shepherd, Although does not have the same force as the German Shepherd, the Malinois surpasses this in resistance and availability to work, Moreover the level of intelligence is similar, even many creators who have worked with both races, They claim that it is superior.

Its development is closely linked to sport, in particular the French Ring and their dissemination at the global level. In fact, in 1900 organized the first tests with jump of obstacles, obedience and a program of bite and 1909 in Paris, is the first World Championship in Ring, from which, is carried out each year.

Physical characteristics

The Malinois shared standard with each other 3 varieties of Belgian Shepherd, differentiating these only in the length, type and hair color. His hair is short on the body, without fringes in limb or tail, the color is carborane Brown and presents dark mask on the face.

Its robust constitution allows it to easily adapt to life outdoors and withstand the environmental conditions of climates as difficult as that of Belgium..

For more than four decades, the lines of beauty and work have not mixed with each other. The Malinois It is above all a breed of utility and if there is something that it is becoming known around the world for, it is for its good attributes for work while still seeing that it is not a dog that resists all terrain, in strength is surpassed by the German Shepherd and some Bull type dogs, but it is still an exemplary dog.

So, It is not a variety whose upbringing go primarily oriented to the official type that sets the standard, that is to say: the beauty.

This explains that his standard has a fairly broad margin compared with other races classified by the FCI, that is why it should not surprise found with copies that differ in size and height.

Character and skills

He is a guard dog, always active and alert. He has an innate aptitude as a flock guardian, and it is a tenacious and ardent supporter of his master, bringing together all the qualities needed to be a sheep dog, guardian, of Defense and service.
