Critique Rafi (just for fun)

Obviously he is not a gsd but I know some of you know mals so figured I'd put him up and see what you think!

I have no idea how to stack but I tried. He closed his eyes because he was so embarrassed.



Not stacked but standing straight.

Oh, he is sooooo handsome. I'd clone him in a minute. He's one of my favorites on this Board.

I looked it up he isn't stacked like our gsd's are, your second photo is very close maybe back legs out just a little further and front right under him but he is a nice one

Shows how much I know! I did read that mals are supposed to be straight and kind of boxy. Do you have a link that shows how to set him up? He is very patient and will stay in whatever position I put him.

Re: Critique Rafi (just for fun)

What do you think of Rafi, Xeph? Is that second picture ok for a stack?

Re: Critique Rafi (just for fun)

Oh Ruth.. be still my heart!! He has the BEST of the Malinois in him. I adore those facial markings, the mask round his serious GSD eyes. His coloring is pur Mal, his bone more GSD. He is absolutely GORGEOUS. Just looking at him from far, I would guess him to be a nicely-boned Malinois. But up close, he has the width between the eyes and ears of a GSD, with that nice bone. SIGHHHH.. dreamy hunky boy Rafi!

As a side note, I know most here only know the sport Malinois. Over here, and in Maastricht, Holland where I once lived, we see Mals that are MUCH more stable and easygoing. Yes, more alert than a GSD, but nowhere near the explosive, dynamic sport/sriven type. Farmdogs would wear out if they were so insane. LOTS of very stable, solid, nice Mals over here that are not the sport type! They look a bit like Rafi, too!

Thanks, Patti! Rafi has a very nice temperament, actually. He does have an off switch and is very sweet too. I do not find him hard to handle but others might because he could be a handful if he didn't have structure in his life.

Several people have told me that Rafi looks like a mal from show lines. I don't know how to show it in pictures but everyone who sees him in real life who knows mals says that he is definitely a mal. But I have seen pictures of a few gsd x mals that look exactly like him.
