Though Gidget (sister to Lawdog's "Emmylou" & "Jolene") was only with us for a short period of time, we certainly consider her a "Lawdog." She was purchased by our good friend Cpl. Grandy and recently received her Regional Narcotics Certification through the USPCA.
Lawdog "Nika" (#gunny2022) is currently in training to be Officer Danner's new sidekick! With a nose like her mama and the temperament of her father, she is destined for greatness in Arkansas

Lawdog "Whiskey" was officially retired from our breeding program at the end of 2022. With incredible drive and determination, she was made for police work! After a lengthy vetting process of more than 30 law enforcement agencies, we found the perfect fit with K9 Sgt./Trainer Starnes in Georgia.

The Belgian Malinois (MAL-in-wah) was first bred around the city of Malines, Belgium. Although Malinois ("Mals") were originally bred to herd livestock, their high drive and keen intelligence quickly made them the most sought after canines for military defense and law enforcement agencies around the country.
Belgian Malinois have the capacity to serve in many different roles. Their "perfect scent" makes them excellent canines to find drugs, locate bombs, track suspects, find missing persons, and more. Because they can easily identify scents, Belgian Malinois can even used as service dogs to detect drops in insulin levels in diabetics. The Malinois has a strong protection instinct and they are very loyal to their owners. Malinois aren’t normally aggressive, however they can be taught to serve and protect their owners.
In a nutshell, the Belgian Malinois is very obedient, highly trainable and an excellent guard dog. They can be great pets but they require a lot of exercise and "a job" because they have a strong desire to "work."
"Mals" require a dedicated human with a "trainer mindset."
