The Belgian Malinois (pronounced mal-in-wah) is a distinct breed, and is often mistaken for a small German Shepherd. Their native country, Belgium, is home to four herding breeds that vary by color and coat type. Named for the town of Malines where they originated, the Malinois is the short-haired variety, adept to both protective-based duties and family environments.
