I'm sure we'd all love to see some pictures!!!
First, I want to say that you don't actually know how much malinois is in this dog, so I would suggest that you forget trying to compare her to other dogs according to a malinois handbook or what you read about the dog breed online. Just take this dog for what she is....a sweet mixed breed dog who might have malinois in the mix or not....and work with the dog, not what you think the breed might be or "should" do.So my Mal mix, and I are working it out, and doing pretty good. However, I can't get this dog interested in playing ball, frisbee, going over a low hurdle (she tried to go under it) nothing. And she's an amazingly athletic dog. And
I know some dogs just don't like to fetch, but thought it was in the Malinois handbook that they have to be wildly excited about it. She doesn't even have a favorite toy. She does, however take great joy in stalking and chasing tiny little critters. And she also enjoys stealing money out of my purse. Any thoughts or suggestions, or is she just gonna be a nose work kind of dog? I wanted her to learn all kinds of tricks, but she needs some inspiration.
