02 How is a Malinois different from a German Shepherd Dog (GSD)?

They are significantly different both in body structure and
temperament. The Malinois is a somewhat smaller dog with lighter
bone. The Malinois stands square, well up on its toes, while the GSD
has a long, sloping back and walks flatter on the foot. The Malinois
head is more refined and chiseled, with smaller, more triangular
ears. The Malinois is a fawn dog, with black overlay (the tips of the
hair are black), while the GSD is typically tan, with a black saddle.
