• Belgian Malinois

    Belgian Malinoises are strong, agile, muscular dogs. Their bodies are similar in length and height and their topline, forelegs, and hind legs lend them a square appearance that adds to their well-balanced, elegant carriage.

  • Group: Herding
    Lifespan: 12–16 yr
    Height: 22–26 in
    Weight: 40–83 lb

  • Care

    Belgian Malinoises have short, waterproof coats that are a snap to maintain. Brush them at least once per week to remove dead hair and reduce shedding. During semi-annual “shedding season” when the breed blows its coat, daily brushing and regular baths can help. Trim their nails to prevent cracking, splitting and painful overgrowths, and clean their ears. Regular dental care that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings is also an essential part of their grooming routines.

  • Disorders

    Hip dysplasia, Progressive retinal atrophy, Retinal dysplasia

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
