Mrs.K, when are you ever going to admit you don't know everything there is to know about everything. I had Jazzy and Arwen together 24-7 for a couple of months. I had no idea they would start WWIII. Now I know better. They were 2 years and 3 years old when I put them together.
We tried to spare you some grief.
I have had dogs that have been in fights, good fights where there were stitches and drains, and they NEVER showed ANY leash aggression or dog aggression toward outside dogs after the fact. A dog should recover from that. They do not all I understand, but that is indicative of poor nerve in my opinion.
And as for wanting to please, Jazzy and Arwen both had that trait to the extreme. It has nothing to do with whether they will show aggression to other dogs within the pack or without. Jazzy was aggressive to strange dogs, Arwen never, not before or after.
Whether this Malinois has a genetic issue, or is typical for her breed has little to do with whether it makes sense to keep her in a family setting with a bunch of young dogs, most of them female. And the more this dog ramps up into fight mode, the more likely someone is going to get hurt bad.
