Is the Belgian Malinois / Dutch Shepherd Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The pairing between a Belgian Malinois and a Dutch Shepherd isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs differ in appearance, but the Belgian Malinois / Dutch Shepherd Mix is likely to be an imposing animal whether it resembles the Belgian Malinois or the Dutch Shepherd or a blend of both.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Belgian Malinois / Dutch Shepherd Mix can be much more unpredictable than average. They need to be socialized by a careful and confident alpha. Some individuals may be sensitive, so you need to gain your companion's trust with reward-based methods. It can be a difficult balance for a new dog owner.
