Mali belongs to a breed called Belgian Malinois, meant to be useful to humans as a working dog. Long ago they were used to herd goats, sheep, geese, camels and cows.

Their intelligence and ability to work hard, their fidelity and protectiveness of their masters earned them the full trust of the humans.

They became increasingly useful and these days they are trusted with the safety of many human lives and with assistance for disabled such as blind, deaf and invalids.

Armies and security forces all over the world are helped by Mallinois dogs for tasks including detection of odors such as explosives, accelerants (for arson investigation), and narcotics; tracking of humans for suspect apprehension in police work.

Her body is strong and muscular, her tail is long, her ears stand up and her almond shaped eyes are brown. Mali has an elegant posture with a short, straight coat a bit longer around the neck and a black mask.

The Belgian Malinois are known as very intelligent and sensitive dogs and these qualities brought about their taming as family pets but their tremendous energy requires lots of outdoors activity and movement. Mali plays with friends.

The Belgian Malinois will need all the required exercise that you can possibly facilitate. Mali always prefers to play outdoors and she is never too tired. Her size requires indeed to be playing outside rather than in the house.

If they live in a hot climate and indoors, the Belgian Malinois shed a lot and they require regular brushing and maintenance such as a good shower with special shampoo. Also, their ears must be cleaned and kept dry and their teeth must be brushed daily with special tooth brushes.

Like every Belgian Malinois , Mali manages with all the family members, children inclusively but she is very active so is she is left home during day time she will do very well alone but will have to be taken out to play, run and exercise as soon as the family  back home.

At ease and playful with the family members Mali is shy with strangers. But her protectiveness towards the family is very strong and she will not hesitate to demonstrate it with strangers coming to visit.

 The Belgian Malinois are easy to train due to their sharp intelligence. They are eager to please and get appreciation from their masters and they are willingly and tirelessly joining them into games and activities.

Like all Belgian Malinois Mali takes her training as part of the playing time and she enjoys getting treats for good behavior.

Harsh tone of voice or physically mistreating the dog must be avoided at all cost: they are very sensitive to our negative behavior.

The training must be preserved as a daily routine as the dogs wait for it and count on it.
