Gorgeous! I love the breed. The ones around here at most 65lbs was the largest I have seen. Could be different lineage as well. Not an ounce of fat on mine...hes out for an hour a day in the summer even more (though...im still fat )

Crazy breed! anything for a ball or frisbee

I never read any horror stories, I just know stuff and that looks liked an accident waiting to happen.

I see why I didn't see the Malinois, similar physical characteristics.

Nice dogs all... and not off topic at all.

Total years fish keeping experience: 7 months, can't start counting in years for a while yet.

Haha my dog eats a salmon based kibble :P salmons a fish. I read a couple stories online as well as a friends brothers personal story. I just cant chance it with having a crazy Malinois in the house (who has yet to knock a tank) and stuff. Plus, wood stands equal more storage and look better
