 We were so pleased when Ritzy and her sister Petra were born, two GREY Malinois pups.
It had been 9 years since a Grey Malinois was last born in the UK (in the Goldmali A litter) and we all thought the colour was going to die out.
There have been a few Malinois incorrectly registered as Grey, but Imagine (Ritzy) and Icon (Petra) are the real thing.
Both their parents are from the original Sabrefield lines and over 20 Grey Malinois were born over the years at Sabrefield.

Ritzy's pedigree name Imagine is of course from the song by John Lennon.
