He is a pomeranian, not a mini GSD. A malinois on the other hand is actually in the same family as a GSD. It's at least a shepherd, albeit a belgian.
Willy, I doubt they will change the rules. Mals can't be posted in rescue either and I once was admonished for posting in the critique area asking about my mals confirmation. The entire thread was even moved to another area, chat I think?? I kind of quit posting pics of my dogs at that point.
