Since the Belgian Malinois is considered a variety of Belgian Shepherd, the question begs:  What is the different between the varieties of Belgian Shepherds and German Shepherds.

German Shepherd VS Belgian Shepherd

Can you tell the main differences between the German and the Belgian Shepherd? Both dog breeds are amazingly clever, and both were originally bred to be work...

Interesting info about the breed. I always liked more the Belgian Tervuren and the black Belgian Sheepdog (forgot how to spell the long word, LOL...Groenendael or something). I saw a Belgian Sheepdog as a kid in my neighborhood and have wanted one all my life...shows how impressionable kids can be I guess.

I think they are all beautiful dogs, but they are not for first time dog owners. These dogs need training.

a friend of mine had two of them, but they were long haired even though they were pure bred for many generations.

We had a malinois a few years ago - one of the sweetest dogs we ever had.  But she did shed!!  Her undercoat came out in handfuls every spring.  The local birds and mice probably had comfy nests when she was alive.  :)
