I picked up Harry & Grant from the boarding kennel Sunday evening. I chose this particular kennel because they have indoor/outdoor runs. They even have a couple that have lids on them inside and out, just for containing spaz dogs like Harry. Imagine my shock when I discovered that he had escaped their Super Deluxe Escape Proof Kennel a couple of times. Fortunately, his escapes were in the indoor portion of his run. I guess the Saturday morning kennel attendant showed up for work, and was surprised to find Harry waiting for her in the kitchen. They assume that he crawled through a hole in the lid that wasn't very secure, dropped in the the run next to him that contained Grant, and then jumped out of Grant's uncovered kennel. After they reinforced that spot, he just started tearing at the chain link on the kennel door, and got out that way.

They later told me that they found him in the kitchen several times before they figured out how he was doing it.





I can't wait to see them! Which two did you meet? From what I understand, Stan is the smallest. He was the tiniest puppy, but seemed to have caught up when I got him at 3 1/2 months. Green (now Rune) and Blue (can't remember new name, Ranger maybe?) were still there when I got him, and he was nearly their size. I suspect that he's going to be a little guy. I weighed him on Wednesday, so he's now 43.8 lbs at 10.5 months.





They can't bear to miss anything!





I think that's a good description of Malinois, too.
Sounds like Izze when she was younger, like insaid her arthritus in her back stopped a lot of the jumping escapes, acts then she settled to tearing the fence apart :/

Dogdragoness, ABMC (www.malinoisrescue.org) doesn't have all the dogs in need of foster posted on their site - their fb group page (http://www.facebook.com/groups/132825836736322/) is the most up to date listing of what dogs are in line. Fill out a foster application if you want to and once you're approved they'll find you a foster.

I got this girl about 8 years ago and I was way in over my head. Of course, now she's my "Princess". Good luck!

LOL This describes Riley and Aura pretty well too, although I don't think Riley is quite as intense as Harry, but he has some of the same issues. Aura is very much happy go lucky and thinks everyone is put on this planet to love her. She is far more lovey dovey than Riley too.

With ACDs females are usually less lovey dovey, & males are more so. Females tend to be tougher physically & more dutiful: there is a saying "females love you but males are IN love with you" lol. Also I have read that it's best if you are female to get a male dog, & vice versa is there any truth to this?
LOL sounds about the same. Boy Belgians can be so lovey and needy and dorky with their people.

As to if you should get a male or female, much is personal preference.

LOL I think that is about the same as Savvy jumping the 4' fence as a little 3 month old! The boarding kennel story is too funny - what a crazy boy!

Rune and Austin, they were both average sized I'd say.

Here's a shot of both in the ring, Austin is the darker one:

Holy crap is that 3rd dog in the ring a Malinois? The hair seems insane for a mal (tho I know you can have fluffy Mals, I just never figured one would show up in a ring with THAT much coat).

Stan bros!!! I never got to meet Austin. He was gone by the time I went and got Stan. According to Debbie, Rune is in the low 60s already. Apparently he gains weight easily. He does look bigger than Austin in that pic, but not much. I'm not talked to Pam (Austin's owner) in a while. Their breeder says Stan is the smallest. We are fine with that. I want him to get a little bigger so he can fit into some of the cool stuff I had for Harry, though.

So, your impressions of them were favorable?
