    I was very lucky my first one was an adult dog and by malinois standards very mello but he is still a commitment in required mental and physical stimulation. I work my dogs a lot and they still are never going to be trustworthy in some situations. There are a lot of malinois’ in rescue right now do to a lack of structure and outlet for their energy and drive some of these would be great “starter” mals but line up resources for training and tips and tricks prior to getting one to avoid disaster.
    Your dogs look great—handsome ones over there. I love that shepherd look (then there's my wife, who likes small dogs but also likes larger ones—I simply won't consider getting a little one). And yeah, if we ever get a Malinois, it'll be a number of years from now, when I have more time to work them. We could likely do a GSD a little sooner, but for now, we need a chill hiker and lounger.

    I don’t see Boxers getting enough love in this thread! We have a black (super sealed brindle) male and he goes bonkers guarding house, is scary looking (I think being black a lot of folks have no clue what he is), is great with my sons, and has finally gotten calmer at close to 2. Only draw back is he goes nuts when my son and I wrestle, and he is a wrestler so this happens often. He loves that boy deeply. The breeder’s website below as my picture posting game sucks

    I have heard they have great personalities, albeit they need to be socialized and exercised well. I wish our apartment complex didn't have such extensive breed restrictions. I'm trying to figure out how to sneak in a well-behaved GSD or something similar. They look awfully distinctive, though, and we have to provide a picture of the dog to the complex management.

    Back when the world was young, and we scuffed through dry leaves in the crisp fall weather, I was on my way to Happy Herbie's English class on the second floor of Heimlich Hall when a brown Boxer came up alongside me and escorted me upstairs. Soundless and heedless of others, he lay down on the worn wooden boards next to my seat. I watched out of the corner of my eye as the dust motes danced around him in golden sunlight. After class he walked me downstairs and left me outside.

    He showed up again next class, and the one after that, and the one after that, for about a week and a half. The routine was the same. No one in class, not even Happy Herbie, mentioned or acknowledged him.

    Then one day, he didn't show. And I never saw him again.

    I still wonder. And I have loved Boxers ever since.

    Here is a type of cat that is becoming way too common these days for dogs to deal with. The sightings often report them as black. Makes me wonder if someone has released zoo bred cougars back into the environment. Breeders do all sorts of breeding experiments.
    Large black cats have been reported for years in some localities and again Biologists say that they do not exist.
    Since I was a small child tales of black panthers have circulated in rural East Texas. My grandfather told of being chased out of the logging woods in the early 1900s by a large black cat he called a Panther. My father and mother both had sightings of large black cats on our properties in Panola county. My mother and father were coming home after dark one night when they pulled into our mile long driveway when they noticed a small black cat in the road. My father stopped his truck and as they watched 2 more small black Kittens walked into the roadway fallowed by a very large black female cat. According to my parents the kittens were the size of house cats and the mother was at least 5 to 6 feet from nose to tail. The tail was thick and long with an upward curve at the tip. https://fishgame.com/2018/02/no-black-cougars-black-panthers/

    I told yall they in Telfair County! Better be careful in them swamps. I heard that joker scream the other night. Made the hair on my neck stand up. Im usin my flashlight from now on!
    In my little community in NWFL there have been numerous reports of sightings and over the couple of days. The Florida Wild Life Commissions denies that they are present here.
    A cougar could be quite bit for most dogs to manage.

    I’ve sewed up a number of dogs over the years that have tangled with cougars. Then there are those I didn’t sew up because the owner couldn’t find all the pieces.

    No doubt cougars are relatively common in the Appalachians. Have a bud that saw a black one while deer hunting a few years ago. While he was snuggled down against a blow-down root ball several does went by very excited. He expected to see a buck chasing them. A few minutes later he turned his head slowly and finally spotted a panther peering at him over a nearby log! FWIW......

    Here is my little dog. Her name is Brunnie, she is a pit/dachshund cross. Great personality, loves to hike, unfortunately hates gunfire.

    Truly a pair of warrior dogs

    Dogs that killed an intruder will not be put down.

    Check the signs on the front porch. And he had to have heard the dogs inside.

    Well, they ain't talkin'.
