Our clients often call them “fur babies” or “the best friend they have ever had” and that means a lot to us. We don’t sell dogs. We place them with people who need protection but also want a family member who shares in their life daily. Own a Belgian Malinois once and you’ll never have another breed. These dogs are hard to find. Search the web and you’ll find 200 German Shepherds compared to one Malinois for sale. Narrow it further by accepting only a quality dog and it becomes a near impossible task to find the Belgian Malinois.
The Belgian Malinois is also known as the Belgian Shepherd. There are 4 breeds which fall into the Belgian Shepherd category. Wolfsbane K9 breeds and sells standard colored and rare solid black Belgian Malinois only.
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. In addition White House videos showing the dogs working for the Secret Service have also gained plenty of interest in the breed. We see more folks now who recognize the breed if we take them with us to stores, the park etc. At one time they were not even in the top 100 registered breeds with the AKC and now the breed ranks in the 60s. It must also be noted that 80% or more of Belgian Malinois in America are not registered.
