Exactly why I didn’t guess! I would have said Mal mix with your guy, and just GSD for the OP.What a beauty! I laughed when I read the post only after so many people including my trainer said my boy Jack was Malinois or Mal Mix. It was making me straight up crazy ...lol So I did the embark dna.
Came back 100% GSD. It is funny for months all I could see was German Shepherd, then all I could see was Mal and now as he is now 15 months old. Today is our 1 year Gotcha day, and all I see is my beautiful dog.
I love his floppy ear baby pic lol!
Do you mean the pup is 5 months now, and you’re wondering if you should hold out for a younger pup?The seller says she is pure Malinois whatever it doesn't matter as long as she has a good personality.one thing do you think 5 months is to old to get a Maligator
I wouldn’t say 5 months is too old, just start up on that training asap!The seller says she is pure Malinois whatever it doesn't matter as long as she has a good personality.one thing do you think 5 months is to old to get a Maligator
Don't do it. I am assuming that you work out of the home for some portion of the day. That would make your wife the primary caretaker for this puppy while you're gone. This is not fair to your wife, the puppy or you.Sorry was trying to figure out how to show quoted text yes my wife and I are talking about how to best go about getting a new member of the household and yes I think it would be to much for her and it would be hard plus she is used to the Wolf Hybrids we raised 20 below zero and they still laid out in the open so when I said inside dog that raised concerns she is not bed ridden but she is not steady on her feet she can let our other dogs in and out but it will be totally up to her as much as I want something positive ie a new dog my wife is most important
I agree. Even affection is 1000 miles an hour with them. They can be great dogs, but I don't think they're what you're looking for.Hey Luke, I am really sorry you are going through this, it must be extremely stressful.
One thing about malinois, though, is they aren't real good at being just comfort dogs. They reflect your mood. It's a harsh mirror sometimes. If you are in an unstable place mentally, and I'm not blaming you for that at all, the malinois will reflect that. In ways you may not expect or like, and that could even be dangerous.
If you want a dog for comfort, find one that is more happy-go-lucky and resilient despite your mood. A well bred lab can be a wonderful companion. I don't think a malinois or mali mix is a good choice.
