I see them a lot around dog events, but not so much day to day. Well..actually I see the occasional terv but there is a local breeder here. I've never seen a Mal or Groenendael in my store. I saw a Terv walking down the street in Chicago, and a Mal walking down the street in Boston. I don't usually see them out on the street around here.

I actually saw a Dutchie (I know, not related) at the trade show. Love.

I never see Belgians around here. This place is full of the 'generic' dog breeds, y'know the labradors, goldens, and bulldogs. There really are no less common dog breeds around here. I've seen a Malinois once, and that was driving past a dog training center while an event was going on (that I sadly didn't get to go to). The closest thing to a Malinois--or any Belgian for that matter--are the oversized German Shepherds that seem to be wandering around everywhere.

Now that I think about it, I really don't see Belgian anythings all that often. There is a Petsmart "trainer" here who lectures me every time I walk in to the store about how cruel I am for putting a prong or any other type of training collar on my dog, who claims he has a 120 pound Malinois. I've never seen this mythical beast, but does that sort of count? Kinda?

Maybe his 120 lb Malinois is related to the guy from Amanda's store...

There were two Malinois that boarded in at work a few years ago. (Glad they don't anymore, those dogs were nuts! Or maybe just typical Malinios. Lol) I've also seen a lady walking a pair down the road when I head to work sometimes. We have a client that just purchased a Malinois puppy. He's ex-military and worked with one while on duty, so when his service was over he wanted one.

Other than that, I haven't really seen many in this area. Although I have seen a few ads on craigslist for maliwah dogs. :/

I play Flyball so I see Mals often. I have friends with Mals and a friend with a Laekenois.

OK, that makes more sense!

There are two other Belgians nearby. A lady in my club has a Terv. The next county over has a Malinois K9.

I run into a terv every now and then at petco, but that's pretty much it. I have a LOT of people ask if Lucy is Belgian, which kinda surprises me that people out and about even know what one is.

I don't see many around here out and about, but there are two working line mals from a breeder in Lansing that are members at the park and I see one very frequently. They're expanding!

As far as I can recall I have never seen any type of Belgian (well maybe at the one dog show I went to several years ago but I don't remember). We really don't get very many unusual dogs in my neighborhood or my college town. Labs, pit bulls, Huskies, German Shepherds, Greyhounds, and the common small breeds as well are all I really see. I saw my one and only real live Doberman a few years ago.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!
