Belgian Malinois

For the uninformed, the Belgian Malinois, pronounced MAL in wah, is easily confused with the far more well known German Shepherd.

The Belgian Malinois is a European herding dog, recognised by the AKC as a true breed in 1959. It was first bred true in Malines, Belgium.

This breed is considered intelligent and can be trained. Because a herding instinct was bred into them, they do best when they have regular “jobs” to do. It requires exercise and does best with large yards. Because itʼs a herd dog, it also does best when it lives with people, making it an indoor-outdoor dog. They are generally high-energy dogs until around age 3.

Pet vaccinations

Keeping your pet vaccinations current is a good idea according to veterinarians and animal experts.

A vaccine prepares a body’s immune system to fight disease-causing organisms. The vaccine mildly stimulates the immune system, kind of a “be prepared” scenario. If the actual disease shows up, the body’s immune system is already on alert and can react almost immediately to shut the disease down. Without the vaccine, the body needs a lot more time to react to the disease, time that may not be available.
