Yeah, the police in the next county use mals and dutchies. Our county uses GSDs.

But the scruffiness and coat texture was not for me haha.
Laekens were what first got me liking the scruffy look!

Wow that's really cool! Mine is in training for flyball and he's doing really well at it.

I think both the city and county use mostly Mals, with maybe one or two GSDs.

There is a permanent Malinois at the high school, with a handler. He's (the dog)retiring soon, I think. Cute dog, loves his work. He's working until they have a replacement, I believe.

One of my good friends has a Terv named Finn ..she's 4 and stunning. Even better? Next Friday we're driving to Quebec to pick up her newest Terv! I'm so excited.

1. Visit to my one true love, Quebec.
2. PUPPIES.

I've met a handful of Mals (all in dog sports)... 2 Tervs at the dog park... and 1 Groenendael. They're insanely rare in NorCal, as far as I've seen. Not ONE was boarded at the hotel that I worked at, full time, for 4 years, with literally tens of thousands of dogs coming through. Very sad because all of the Belgies I've met have been awesome & stunning. Actually, they were probably all awesome and stunning BECAUSE their popularity hasn't exploded. Can't say the same for poor GSDs.

I've seen a few Groenendaels around. They are such pretty dogs.
The police force has a few Mals but mostly use German Shepards.
I've only ever seen one other Mal around town.

Um, pretty much never. I don't think I've ever seen one.

One of mine (Whimsy) came to me from Northern CA There's likely more than you realize around.

There's plenty of good GSDs out there too, you just have to know where to look
