I would agree, Mali are prob on the agility ,marker. They are a great breed that doing agility would give them the outlet that IMO they need to becoming more on point in commands.
Just a different all around dog an experience over the GSD. I think people get in trouble when they expect a german while getting a Mali and then wonder why they have issues or are so called disappointed. Mali are a strong companion and very good worker

I'd like to DNA him to see, but truthfully I'd be a bit bummed if it came back with no Mal content. I think I prefer just assuming his size, conformation, drive, energy, and general appearance are all fitting for a Mal and enjoying him as is. He's funny, cuddly, ULTRA fast at everything he does, generally settles pretty well assuming he's been exercised, is rather good at learning new things, etc. I am really loving him and the experience!
And I have to say- comparing my Mali boy to my GSD girl- it's hard for me to imagine having a GSD over a Mal in the future given what I'm into. I still think Shepherds absolutely rock, but man alive- Jinks is faster, smaller, more agile, and lighter than Pimg. He's exactly what I was hoping for in a future agility dog. The more I see GSDs lately, the more I realize just how BIG they are. Bigger is not always better! (Which I will say- I really liked the size of the Zu Treuen Handen bitches I've seen.)

She is an absolutely awesome dog. Incredibly smart, quick witted and fast.
@Willy: how do you like the Mali experience so far?

MaDeuce - Matured and Filled out
She has matured and filled out so much, it's unbelievable. She'll turn two in November and next month I'll have for one year now. Crazy how fast time flies.
