My first Belgian Malinois was an import for a client to be a drug detection dog. He wanted a crazy ball driven dog. Ok, I located one.
At the airport I had no clue what I was picking up. My first time hanging with a Malinois and an adult at that. I picked up the crate in the office. With all doors closed I took him out on a slip leash. He was friendly with paws up on everything. I had a tennis ball in my pocket and wanted to bounce off the floor one time just to see. I never thought the ball would go into this high garbage can in the office. The Malinois jumped in head first before I blinked an eye. I loved this fun behavior. And my journey began.
The 2nd Malinois was an unregistered small mahogany 1/2 tail Malinois who had over the top drive in all kinds of ways. This dog just quivered with excitement to work. His name was was Sammy.
I was training my German Shepherd for Schutzhund 3. I brought Sammy to the club with me. He got his BH and he was a sharp dog. Sammy got his Schutzhund 1. He was fun to watch in the bite work. He outed though,. He was sold as a detection dog as intended. A little detour for hiu.
I wanted to breed Malinois for Police but with a pedigree.
Good Working Malinois with a Pedigree.
FCI for AKC registry in the USA.
One day a video from Europe came with dogs on it for sale. No facebook. And there was my Malinois with a pedigree and all kinds of other titles for beauty and work.
I saw this crazy barking in the blind Schutzhund 3 dog. Jamey.
A week later he came to the USA. Nothing phased this dog. He was just happy. I was happy.
I was blessed to be able to find and buy my 3rd Belgian Malinois VDH CH, V1, AM & SKC James des Deux Pottois (1985) LOSH 544045
