Belgian Malinois Description
  The Belgian Malinois is muscular but not heavy, solid but very agile dog, with a proud carriage. "Square" is the word to describe this breed as it body is about as long as it is tall. Its topline is level with a slight slope at the withers. It has a deep chest, reaching to the elbow, but it is not broad or narrow. The front legs are very straight and parallel to each other and the hindquarters are muscular, without looking heavy. It has round, cat-like feet. Dewclaws may be removed from the front legs, but should be removed from the back legs. Its long tail reaches at least to the hocks. Its coat is short-haired. The hair around the neck is somewhat longer and forms a collar. Its small, dark, almond-shaped eyes have an alert and questioning expression. Its alert, erect ears are equilateral triangles and in good proportion to its head. The skull is flat and parallel to the plain of the muzzle which tapers, but is not excessively pointy. Its nose is black and lips are tight. The teeth meet in a scissors or level bite.
