    Sounds like Izze when she was younger, like insaid her arthritus in her back stopped a lot of the jumping escapes, acts then she settled to tearing the fence apart :/

    I got this girl about 8 years ago and I was way in over my head. Of course, now she's my "Princess". Good luck!

    LOL This describes Riley and Aura pretty well too, although I don't think Riley is quite as intense as Harry, but he has some of the same issues. Aura is very much happy go lucky and thinks everyone is put on this planet to love her. She is far more lovey dovey than Riley too.

    LOL sounds about the same. Boy Belgians can be so lovey and needy and dorky with their people.

    As to if you should get a male or female, much is personal preference.

    LOL I think that is about the same as Savvy jumping the 4' fence as a little 3 month old! The boarding kennel story is too funny - what a crazy boy!



    Rune and Austin, they were both average sized I'd say.

    Here's a shot of both in the ring, Austin is the darker one:

    Holy crap is that 3rd dog in the ring a Malinois? The hair seems insane for a mal (tho I know you can have fluffy Mals, I just never figured one would show up in a ring with THAT much coat).

    Stan bros!!! I never got to meet Austin. He was gone by the time I went and got Stan. According to Debbie, Rune is in the low 60s already. Apparently he gains weight easily. He does look bigger than Austin in that pic, but not much. I'm not talked to Pam (Austin's owner) in a while. Their breeder says Stan is the smallest. We are fine with that. I want him to get a little bigger so he can fit into some of the cool stuff I had for Harry, though.

    So, your impressions of them were favorable?

    Yes very much! Both really nice, happy boys who seemed very sound and were good looking. They made me laugh because they both got a little too wound up in the ring a couple times and didn't want to stand or were trying to gallop. Very cute :) Rune seems on the ball crazy side of things for sure. They both seemed to like to have fun. I have a picture on my thread in the photo section "Mals Gone Wild" that shows them both..ummm...not stacking:

    I bet Stan will get a bit bigger. Stan - grow so you can get cool stuff!

    I was at a trade show this weekend and there was just a ton of mals! A few Tervs. This one gal had a little spitfire Mal puppy too. I just love watching them with their people, there's just something extra there.
