    Belgian Malinois mix?

    Hi, I’m new here. We are fostering a puppy from the humane society and we think he may be a Belgian Malinois mix. Are there any tell tale signs for me to look for to see if he really is. Here is a picture. He’s only about 2 months old and weighs 11 or so pounds.

    Could well be, but it can only be a guess. You could have a DNA test. The major laboratories results are much more reliable than they used to be. He is a sweet puppy, whatever his breed, - will you fail as a foster parent and keep him?

    Hello Heather - welcome to Breedia from Tikva and from me :039:

    Your lovely foster is very sweet and whatever breed mix he is, looking at that last picture I reckon he will be a foster fail!

    Laid back are not the first words that spring to mind when talking of Malinois. The exception that proves the rule?

    He is young so that could change but also he is definitely mixed. He tried to jump from the bed to a high dresser the other night so the laid back thing might be changing LOL.

    I hope he did not hurt himself - but I am sort of laughing as my little booga somehow managed to jump up and end up in the sink this morning... :102:

    I think I should qualify my above comment about Tikki getting in the sink. She did indeed end up in the sink but I was knelt down at the time and she used my back as a springboard! :D

    I would say it is possible that it is part malinois. Has a lot of the same markings as mine. If so make sure you do your research. 572D50DD-094D-4613-A67E-4EBCF74F5E2F.jpeg

    Hello Anthony - your Mal is very handsome. May I ask if that is an e-collar he is wearing, and if so why?

    Yes. Maci always has an e-collar on. It is used as a training tool. It causes them to regain focus on you instead of something else. It has worked wonders on both of my dogs. After about a couple of months working with it a simple beep will have them refocused and ready to train.
