We lost our previous dog this Fall and really wanted another Belgian Malinois even though with a bit of reluctance given how high energy they are. Our previous dog was the sweetest dog but scared our neighbors. We were really drawn by the Colorado Blend which reportedly is a bit more tempered. We picked up our new puppy on October 9 after taking the kennel up on two weeks of the new puppy training package. The crate training has been fabulous; puppy doesn’t even whine. This morning she was communicating with 3 deer in the backyard and was literally nose to nose with them and Mia was shockingly nonchalant. Thus far she has been great inside the home. She’s now housebroken with little effort on our part. She is so eager and easy to train even at this age. What a super cool dog!
