Default It's official (moved from chat)

The next puppy I have will be an Ot Vitosha Malinois. The deposit has been made.

It will be a male from the upcoming C litter.

Malinois Ot Vitosha - Two Time World Champion Dogs

I've been a big fan of Odin (he's a shark with fur) as well as quite a few notable dogs in both the sire and bitch's pedigree. Now here's just hoping there are some males in there to choose from. I was originally looking for something quite a bit older, but I do like the pliability that comes with getting them young (insert pedobear image here)

I like how they flat out tell you not to expect the "off switch" with these guys. At least they're honest.

Congratulations.

Question. On the video Odin bites low and hangs on but isn't that dangerous for the dog in a real situation. If the guy was serious with the stick he could work the dog over because the dogs focus is so low.

Could you explain, so us "pet people" can understand.

1 it's a sport. That is Ivan's competition dog. He isn't going to be sending it for live bites on armed assailants. He has other dogs for that.

2 Have you ever taken a live bite from a trained attack dog of that caliber? If so your first reaction was not oh he's got my leg I'll just just work this dog over while he's biting my leg. You would scream bloody murder, probably panic and the dog would have you for breakfast. Unless you were hopped up on pcp or something.

3 you can just recall the dog and with a leg wound like that the guy can't keep up.

I've taken practice suit bites from dogs like that and had them still hurt me through the suit. You don't want the real thing. Just trust me on that. The power is something you have to experience first hand to really understand.

niiiiice, looking forward to the updates!

One of my friends was hoping to get an Ot Vitosha pup from the breeding last fall that didn't take. Of course, it didn't take, so that was a no-go.

That varies dog to dog and generalizations made when debating that start fights in places like this.

If you want my opinion pm me for it, as I've already used up my allotment of moderator warnings on another thread.
