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 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 is the one of the few kennels in America to raise black Malinois puppies from KNPV parents. All should have the classic black mask on their nose and around the eyes. Of course on black dogs this is not visible. Some have almost black eyes while others have brown or even golden eyes. The ears are pointed and stand on their own usually at around 6 weeks.

They’re known by many as the dog that helped take terrorist Osama bin Laden down and this caused a spike in the number of people who wanted to own one.

It must also be noted that 80% or more of Belgian Malinois in America are not registered.

The Malinois will shed some in the Spring and Fall. A weekly brushing is needed to remove loose hair. They shed a lot less than a German Shepherd. The breed is healthy and has a good life span often living to age 14 or more which provides many years of service to the owner.

Remember this breed is thinner and lighter than the German Shepherd by nature and when looking at one you shouldn’t assume the dog is malnourished as the long, thin body is a good sign. The Malinois will typically weigh between 55 and 75 pounds although the ideal weight is 60 to 65 pounds.
