Rex is roughly three quarters working lines and one quarter showlines.
He has a very high drive and a bomb proof temperament. (Although plenty of bad manners, which is entirely our fault!)

A working dog with showdog looks? No, a Malinois that is truly dual purpose.

To see Rex be born and grow up until 8 weeks, visit the pages for the GOLDMALI K LITTER.

9 weeks old and the home for Rex fell through. Then a second, third, fourth and FIFTH home fell through too!

Rex LOVED his first walk with Benjamin.

A relaxed Rex

10 and a half weeks old and we have decided -Rex is staying! We didn't plan on keeping two puppies (littermates are never a good idea), and especially not another male dog, but Rex is now part of the family. He and Magic will go to separate training classes and get socialised separately, to not grow too dependent on each other.

I can be useful and guard the house. I can see out the window this way!

Mummy will help me guard.

3 months old

I didn't think much of this couch so took it apart. Well the humans only paid £3 for it from Ebay!

See, it didn't take long to get a new couch -and this one was free!
