I had a purebred shepherd female that was 45 pounds at that age. She is 4 now and about 54 and could gain about 4 to 6 pounds. Not impossible.

The breed standard for mals is 55 to 65 pounds but there are many that are bigger and smaller. Dutchies are smaller.

I don't know if dutchies and/or mals are popular in Maine?

I am a malinois owner, and I see doberman personally, not malinois.

Regarding size, my male malinois is 57 lbs on the nose. He is on the smaller side for the mals I know, but only because the only other ones I know are on the K9 unit and they seem to import the bigger beefier ones, definitely out of standard.

I see Mal or Dutch shepherd in there, too. But it is REALLY hard to tell from looks.

Suki is supposedly 1/2 GSD (not sure if father was purebred) and 1/2 Mal (also not sure if mother was purebred) - so she is quite the mutt we suspect. Take a look at her photos, I see some of her in your dog. She is approx. 75 pds at a year old...quite large for a mali mix or even a purebred female GSD so who knows what she really is?! She too, is very skittish at times which is a very common Mali trait.

All we know is we love her! Beautiful boy you have, thank you for rescuing him!

I see Doberman in the eyes and face as well. And he looks like his coat is very short?

Do you have a picture of him standing? Side view? The size and weight doesn't fit with a Doberman either.

Btw...I think he's very handsome.

I see Doberman. It'd be more likely to be that rather than Malinois or Dutch.

He looks very similar to the GSD/Malinois dogs I have seen.
