Default Is there such a breed...

...as a Belgium Malamar? Someone is selling a litter of AKC registered ones for a few hundred bucks. But I check the AKC breed list and couldn't find them. I sure never heard of it. I am thinking they meant Belgian Malinois. Unless this is another mix breed but I don't know what it would be.

I see stuff like this all the time. They must mean Belgian Malinois. Wow, Belgium Malamar? I see chiwawas and shitsues, and dalmashuns all the time in the paper. Geeze. Just goes to show that most people know NOTHING about the breed of dogs they breed.....

Oh, and we almost got a german shepherd when i was a kid, but my dad thought twice after reading the ad. It was hand written (meaning it wasn't a typo) and it read:

German Shepherd Puppies for sell.
AKC pappers.

We ended up deciding to rescue a Siberian Husky instead. lol!

Speaking as someone who has placed ads in a paper (no, not for dogs), it's also possible they called the ad in. You can get some pretty interesting spellings from the editors. It's possible the person said Belgian Malinois, and the person taking the ad down assumed they heard correctly and didn't ask for spelling. Mmm. Beligium Mallowmar? Sounds decadent!

As for the handwritten ad, no excuses for that one!

Oh, I never thought of that! I bet that was it too. I've placed ads before, also, and called them in, but never have had miss spelling. Although, it's never been for a dog breed either. lol! The only explaination I have for the hand written one, was that it easilly could've been the owner's son or daughter who wrote it, but you'd think they'd check the spelling before putting the signs up right? Unless they, too were bad spellers. lol!

I thought a malamar was a cookie

Interesting results on a Yahoo search of Belgian Malamar

Unhappy Malamar

well I do not know if it its a breed or not. But i just turned in a beautiful big boy to Caddo animal shelter; and guess what he was a Malamar! I thought he was some freaky german shepard mix. He was BIG and beautiful. I will think of him when I hear of the Malamar breed, real breed or not.

It's Malinois, not Malamar. Same as "Rockwilders" are really "Rottweilers". Some people just can't either spell or were told wrong by people who can't spell or have no actual idea what their dog is or was.

The other day I was at Petsmart and this woman had a chihuahua puppy in her arms and I told her how cute I thought it was. Her husband informed me that was "her" dog and that he had a german rockwaller. I humored him but jeez, learn your breed! They probably had a chiwawa too.

I did up a sign when i was about 7 for some puppies my dog had. My dad put it up in our front yard it read; Free puppies 50 cents each. I sold all 9 of them.(hehe). I remember people asking if they were free and I'd say yes but if you want to give me 50 cents my dad says that would be ok.
