My friend has 2 groens. Then there was another groen in rally with us and another two that run agility at trials we go to. Then my other friend has a groen and a terv. And then a judge up in Calgary has 3 or 4 mals.

Other than in my house...

I see a lot of Groens and Mals. I'm friends with a lot of Belgian people, we have multiple club members with Groens and one with Tervs at the local club, at the local performance place the owner has a Mal, one instructor has one and several students have Mals or Groens and there is a slew of Mals and some Groens at flyball. If I went to training every night at any of those three places, chances are I'd see other people's Belgians every night. Oddly I see less Tervs, although they are definitely the more popular hairy Belgian. And like Emily said, Mals are definitely gaining popularity (and in the wrong kind of way).


Now beyond a "dog person setting", I don't see Belgians very much at all. I have very rarely run into people who have one as a pet or knows someone who does.

I see far less of PyrSheps, no one else at the training club, performance place or flyball has even one. I see them at local shows a lot though. I'm pretty sure that there will be some PyrSheps at the Agility National

I hope so! I will be stalking them.

In my city there's me and my two friends that have 7 Mals in total, and one guy that breeds Tervs with the worst temperaments ever. I've never seen another Belgian here other than the ones I know. One time I saw a dog in the back of a truck that looked like a fluffy Mal, he claimed that he bred Mal/Husky crosses, but I haven't seen any more of those around.

I forgot to add... There's also apparently a ton in pet homes around here. I get 2-3 people a week telling me about their "Malinois" and such.

Apparently here, anything pointy that's fawn with a black mask is a mal.

I never see any Belgians. I have met one, ONE Malinut in my entire life, and he was bad enough it made me not want to seek one out at any point.

Maybe I'm crazy enough to consider one in the future, but I'd be quite happy to just have a long coated Dutch as well.

Although, I do love the fluffy butt Mals. I think there's one or two in Michael Ellis' videos, I'd love to steal. It may be the one named Enzo, as a matter of fact, lol


Even at AKC shows, I don't think I've run into any of the Belgians, though I may just keep missing their breed ring.

Just about every time I go to Auggie's breeder's house and see her son's Terv...

There's a Mal who does agility around here and I see him pretty often. I have seen one other Terv doing agility but that's about it.

I don't see them out and about and I've never had one in a class.

Enzo is a bit large but he totally catches my eye. I was hoping Phendi/Jersey would throw some fluffy babies, extra swoon.

They're nutterfutz but ****, they're fun.
