I have also met very nice stable Malinois from show lines. But also some from working lines. I've seen the opposite also. The non-show line people often don't care as long as they "work", which to me means "bite". My Malinois is from working lines. Her father is from the Banc des Hermelles kennel in France. http://www.chiens-de-france.com/site...&ID_SITE=20421
She is a handful! ...and the reason I don't recommend Malinois to people who don't know what they are getting into. That said, there are some really nice Mals in ABMC Rescue, and there is always a need for foster homes.
In my area, Ohio/Kentucky, there are a lot of the long hair Belgian breeders, so I have the opportunity to see a LOT of those.
