Just before New Year a litter of 8 puppies arrived at the SPA and were distributed to four foster families. They all appear to be Belgian Shepherd crosses, so it may be as well to be aware of the characteristics of this breed before getting too excited! Typically the dogs require lots of stimulation, both mental and physical. They are very protective by nature and can have tendencies to herd. A malinos owner needs to be fairly authoritative, as dogs of this breed need to be shown their limits. We have both male and female puppies, and their foster families will know them better than anyone. Remember these dogs are not at the SPA, so don’t pop in hoping to meet them; it is by appointment only!
