This article is from the Malinois Breed FAQ, by firstname.lastname@example.org (Nancy Bennett).
The Malinois is the short-coated variety of the Belgian Shepherd Dog.
They are fawn colored with a black mask. In the United States they
have been shown as a separate breed since 1959. Dogs are 24 to 26
inches at the shoulder and weigh 60 to 80 pounds. Bitches are 22 to
24 inches and weigh 40 to 60 pounds. This is a "high energy" dog that
does best when it has a definite purpose in life. It is generally not
a dog for the novice dog owner, for, while it is extremely trainable,
it does not do well with poor or insufficient training.
