Has anyone seen a GSD bred with Belgian malinois?

Yes. I actually met a local policeman with a GSD x Malinois cross in his police cruiser. They were at my local feed store.


Sabra - female GSD - born April 30, 2012
Sargeant - rescued senior GSD male/foster failure - approximately ten years old (August 2013)
Max - rescued GSD - Dec 22, 2010 to March 7, 2012 - at the bridge
Sable - rescued GSD - at the bridge

I've seen some and I've liked them, but as with any outcross results can be rather unpredictable to any extremes, so I don't consider the little I've seen any kind of parameter to account for.

One of my neighbors has one. He just looks like a small gsd that is basically one color but the nose is smaller. He is high energy and very dominant over my gsd. But he is really cute!

I knew of a litter specifically bred for police work....none of them made it there and all ended up in pet homes as breeder was not prepared to raise them all to a year to sell them....extremely driven but somewhat nervy dogs - mali sire was ultra aggressive but the 2 I knew as adults had personality more like the GSD dam with an edge - one was a super OB and agility dog - got an ILP to show....

Saw one once-it was actually kinda of good looking-don't really like the looks of mals-just saw it working in protection -and it worked well-it was being sold to an experienced working home

I am not 100% sure if Gator is GSD/Mal x.
I got him at a yr. old, was an accident between father - Saddleback GSD who I met, the mother was at another location temp. as she was in heat and they didn't want another accident....The woman showed me a pic. of her and she looked Mal....BUT, I was told she was a Dutchie.

Doing searches online I had read that some believe Dutch and Belgian are the same breed just called dutch because of brindle markings.

I was at the All about pets show and asked a dutch/belgian breeder what my dog was likely - although he looks mainly GSD, his fair colours Mal...was told may be dutch but with a recessive gene.

I went to the breeder/trainer initially and told him where Gator came from...he told me G's mother was the offspring of a two Brindle Dutch...

He gets darker in the winter and at times and certain angles I can see brindling in his face.

When I am asked "He's a GSD and what?"...I now just say Belgian, because nobody knows what a dutch is"

From what I have read on here about maligators...he sure fits that description

Regardless, I love him

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

this is a cross that ruins both breeds, like poodle crosses this creates mutts, too many purebred, well bred dogs are dumped in shelters, we don't need more mutts nor new doodle breeds. If you want a Belgian get one, if you want a German Shepherd get one, there are enough options in the pure breed world without intentionally making more mutts.

Are there breeders that really know what they are doing that are crossing these dogs? This could be the answer I've been looking for. Do the dogs typically stay small, fast, and driven?
