Rider is a handsome one year old male Belgain Malinois with a dark mask and body. He is sweet and affectionate, but can also look and act the part of a great personal or family protection dog. He has a medium build for the breed, has high ball drive so fetch and exercise is a must for this athletic guy. He does settle nicely with good exercise and structure and his obedience is very good. Rider is a really balanced dog that is great with kids, other dogs of all sizes, does well in many settings and rides well in a car. His alarm bark is strong and provides an excellent deterrent, but he will also stand between you and a potential threat with stable and confident protection.
