Our goal is to produce healthy dogs with balanced drive, structure and temperament. Our dogs are from working bloodlines. We do NOT have, or use, any ‘show’ lines in the pedigrees of the dogs in our program. We strive to meet and exceed the written breed standard; preserving the true Malinois , which embodies strength, balanced character, and above all versatility in its’ ability to perform in many roles.
Belgian Malinois’, first and foremost, were trusted sheepdogs, and all around farm dogs. They were put into service during the First World War as Ambulance dogs; locating wounded soldiers as well as running messages and telephone wires at the front lines. It was during the Second World War that their duties grew to include sentry, guard and other tasks. Having their working abilities proven, many enthusiasts began purposefully selecting and breeding specific traits - aimed at a particular job. However, in so doing, much of what made the dogs so desirable for work/service, their versatility to adapt and perform numerous types of work, has been lost through generations of such narrow selection, without regard to overall balance. It is the mission of MalinGer Kennels and our purposeful breeding program to ensure what once was – still remains to this day, and beyond.
