Our police department has one" or some such thing.

I tend to say Malinois just out of habit, unless I have Roo and a Black Dog out then I say they're Belgian Shepherds because it's easier. Saying Belgian Shepherd is certainly a better idea for simplicity and I try to remember's hard! My dogs with their funny names and weird breeds just get confusing looks all around from the general public LOL

Popularity isn't as much an issue as breeders willing to sell dogs to anyone with no screening and no strings attached. And that seems to be pretty common with Mals
Popularity draws people in, but yes the breeders should be steadfast, in theory. Unfortunately in breeds without much interest the money breeders usually move on looking for an easier to sell commodity, that's all I mean.

Side note, I met a pyr today. Very cute!!
