Why not just get a Mal? Most of the male Mals I've seen at SchH/people I know are actually just as large/heavy as my male GSD.

Nevermind. The Mal x GSD is ugly! Why would the Mal's cream color dominate the GSD's generally dark color?

Just realized GatorBytes posted a pic of her dog. My statement above was in reference to a google image search. Her dog looks better than anything that came up...

Most of the crosses I've seen have been really ugly (but I suspect that is also because the parents were ugly and these were BYB type breeders or oopsies). I've seen some REALLY pretty Mals, really dark like a red sable GSD. I bet they'd make a pretty cross.

As for Mals and Dutchies, I think in some places they are basically the same? I know someone who went back to NL to get some puppies and basically if they came out black or brindle they were called Dutchies and if they came out fawn and black they were Mals, same litter.

Gator's dog looks GSD to me, at least the head, which is important to me as far as looks

I agree. Her dog looks GSD to me also. The images from a google image search of "german shepherd malinois cross" are weird, ugly things. Gator looks very cool, not weird at all to me.

These mixes are more popular in Holland and in sports like KNPV. They are also seen as police or military dogs on occaisons....99% of the time this type of breeding is for work as opposed to beauty.

That's for sure. Most I have seen are pretty darn ugly, but super for police work.
