Smile Do I have a GSD or Belgian Mal? You be the judge!

Hello everyone,

I recently adopted a dog. He is wonderful and we love him. This is nothing more than curiosity. He is not going anywhere no matter what he is !!!

When we first got him, we thought that he was a GSD (we adopted him from a GSD rescue). When we took him to our vet, he said that he was almost 100% sure that he is a Belgian Mal and not a GSD.

I walk him frequently and take him a lot of places with us on the weekends and I've had a number of military and police officers tell me he is a Mal. I recently had a person from another GSD rescue tell me that he is a GSD and not a Mal.

So just trying to figure out what this beautiful boy is. Either way, he's a keeper! ;-)


He seems to look a lot like the mals in these links:
