The Belgian Malinois dog breed is the picture of power and grace. This no-nonsense breed is intelligent, courageous and muscular while maintaining elegance and agility. Belgian Malinois dogs are lively and do well in either an active family environment or as a working dog in obedience, tracking, herding or agility. They should be taken seriously by their owners and do best with experienced dog owners. Their solid build often leads them to be referred to as “square” since their body is almost as long as it is tall. With a proud carriage, these dogs have a deep chest that reaches to the elbow. Short-haired coats that are fawn to red or mahogany featuring black tips, masks and ears are typical to the Belgian Malinois breed. They have a thick undercoat and fur that is longer around their neck, making a collar-like appearance. Some dogs will have white fur on their feet or chest as well. Their alert nature is evident in their small, dark, almond-shaped eyes that sport a questioning expression. Belgian Malinois make devoted dogs who are both powerful and beautiful.
