Few photos really do him justice -he has the most amazing DEEP red colour.
Mats is small for a male dog but puts a lot into a small package -he has a lot of drive. He is a working dog in a show dog costume.
sired by Mats was born on 7th of April 2015. 12 pups.
Litter included Best Puppy Dog and Best Puppy Bitch at
Crufts 2016 and several working dogs.
I have always felt that a good dog should be able to do it all -why should breeds have to be split up into working and show types? So when I found a Malinois breeder in Belgium who felt the same way, and who breeds dogs that actively DO work AND win at shows, I knew I wanted to buy a dog from him! When I was offered Mats I jumped at the chance. Hence on the 2nd of March 2014 John and I travelled to Belgium to collect Mats, 11 months old.
