It also helps that herding dogs tend to be handler oriented. A 6 foot fence can contain a mali more easily than it can hold a borzoi.

My very high drive mali has gotten loose a few times, and I live on 16 unfenced acres with a lot of wildlife that might be fun to chase and her recall is far from solid. All she does is zoom a few times and then she comes back to me. IME, malis tend to think things are less fun if their owner isn't with them.

GD = Great Dane; you knew about that, eh?

My friend's male is loyal; the little female is an attention ***** and will go with anyone; and we don't know too much about the rescue except she's reactive as hell.

And I agree about the fencing; handler dogs vs. independent dogs; my independent dog will leave in a heartbeat; my people dog you can hardly scrape off your leg.

Oh, yeah. I was wondering if that is what you referred to. I've seen some come out of Holland in particular that are 30 inches at the withers with really boxy heads.

Yeah, I can have Harry in the yard for a few minuted unattended because he just sits at the back door wanting back in. But, I'd never DREAM of leaving him out there and going someplace. He will, however, run off if the gate is left open. He's an extremely reactive and driven dog. Much sharper than I would like. Not particularly social. Good with the family, though. Great with my toddler!

Here is the rescue; Zoe; 8 mos. old; probably about 30-40 lbs.



Here's her girl Ira; 4 years old; 42 lbs.

Hi All, I'm new here - came across this forum while searching for some random dog related thing... seems like a great place with good info!

Thought I'd chime in and share a picture of my baby - he is 5.5 months old and just under 50lbs. No horror stories yet aside from his rock obsession!

Jen, he's gorgeous!

Thought the rest of you might get a kick out of this - a friend of mine near the new town has said that she'd be happy to work schutzhund with Kes and I, so we're both going for our BH's this fall and will consider more than OB after that. She's committed to training thru +R primarily so I'm especially psyched! I think Kes is gonna have a blast and it'll be good prep for any future Malis for me in addition to be a fun new sport.
