Chicago Canine- I actually did look up the breed you mentioned, but it pretty much just looked like a GSD to me.

That "you want a high drive puppy" video could be replaced by this: Abby fetch 11 weeks - YouTube.
Just wanted to say I LOVE your Abby - what a great little girl!

Here are the pics I took of Scrabble at flyball, we were just doing passing recalls with him:









He is FAST!!!! With his ears tucked back, his martingale collar almost slipped right off his head.

I can say Im one of the lucky ones that has a GSD in a malinois body. My girl will be 2 in March and she's about 58lbs and pretty short; I actually started posting here concerned that I had an abnormally small dog LOL


Next to a Schraderhaus male her same age


Small enough to get on the counter and hang out comfortably.

Her brother is about 80lbs. Weird stuff, genetics. I've seen most mal's about her size (the 55-65lb mark). She's a high drive dog so I always joke that my breeder found a mal that threw bicolors and sent her to me instead of a normal GSD

Well, people were saying they liked the GSD but wanted something smaller... The Chodsky pes are 35-55 lbs so I figured they would qualify.

A small GSD with high drive is not a malinois or abnormal in any way. Well bred working GSD's have just as high drive as malinois, and 55 - 65 lbs is not out of standard for a female GSD.

Both in the 2011 and 2012 NAFA Championships- there were LOTS of these tiny Mals.

About all I know is that one of these tiny Mals would absolutely rock my agility world.

The dog in the video looks more like a mix to me. Something is off. Not sure if that has been lightened up, I didn't read any further before answering that post.

That being said, MaDeuce is much smaller than my GSD females and also lighter. Nala is small, light and compact. Only has 68 pounds. MaDeuce is ten pounds lighter. Mals are not supposed to be as heavy, big boned and large as GSD's.

Also I am pretty sure the Chodsky Pes doesn't have the separation of working vs show lines to the extent that GSD has.
Here is some more info on the breed:

I was trying to make a light joke of the conversation, no need to pick it apart. I know it's not out of standard, but it is about the same size as a mal, and combined with the intense drive, we joke about it in training.

I think the Mals I have seen in flyball are about the same as I have seen at other times.
