Belgian Malinois are medium-sized dogs that are known for their intelligence and obedience. When properly trained, they will work their task diligently and without fail. With a weather-resistant coat and a well-muscled body, they are ideal for working outdoors and they can be great companions for activities like hiking and camping. These are shorthaired dogs with fawn-colored coats and they have a distinctive look with black ears and a black mask on the face.
Origin of the Belgian Malinois
The Belgian Malinois was first bred in the area of Malines,
Belgium around the end of the 19th Century. These dogs were bred to be hard
workers and their primary job was livestock herding. Even today, these dogs are
prized for their work ethic and they can be found working on farms or with
police and rescue services.
