Belgian Malinois

Examiner.com reports that the witness is an employee of the training facility, and when Animal Control arrived on the scene, they found the Belgian Malinois in a small cage, acting timid when approached.
Matthews has denied the allegations, and according to the arrest affadavit, a veterinarian checked the dog and found no neurological or skeletal abnormalities. The Off Leash website writes that Matthews "served in the U.S. Army for six years and has been training police and working dogs since 2002."
Unfortunately these aren't the only dog cruelty allegations to make news recently.
Last month, a man in Montana was accused of killing over 50 dogs during a standoff with police, and earlier this year, a Colorado couple who owned a sled dog kennel faced felony charges when dozens of their dogs were found in poor condition.
The Belgian Malinois is one of four types of Belgian sheepherding dogs, according to the American Kennel Club. Some reports suggest that a Belgian Malinois was used during the SEAL team raid of Osama bin Laden's compound.
