Hi All, I need adviced on which dog to get for my house currently I am looking at belgium mali and doberman? which one is better? and i know that both of them are a good guard dog and smart as well. But i just can't make up my mind. me myself personally feel that doberman have the outlook beauty and mali have the inner beauty.
To me I still feel an American Staffordshire Terrier and American Pitbull Terrier works perfect as a guard dog in our country... (personal opinion ) They have the fierce look, the strengh, the loyalty, the powerfull bite, the agility, and the aggressiveness to work as a guard...
Hi Kevin, Yup I very agree with you that american staffordshire and american pitbull terrier that they had the fierce look, strength, loyalty and powerful bite, but this two breed doesn't go well with other dog's...."dog will bite human" but "staffordshire and pitbull will bite human and dog too"....just my personal opinion...hope i didn't offended you at any point.......i think i will stick with my choice MALINIOS OR DOBERMAN....btw nice terrier you got there....
Hi Cris, Thank you for the offer...actually i do have friends that own a belgium shepherd. actually i already wanted to buy doberman last week when i when to a home breeder to check out the dog and when i meet up with my friends for TT session they'll offer to show the ability of their MALI and WOW!!!!.....so now i am in a delima which dog to get.... cause i worry when i make a wrong decission
Hi, just saw your postings both the dogs you mentioned are great for what you wish it to do but I think a Mali would suit you better as a dob needs a lot of "chummyness" as if you are one of those that work late into the day and not spend much time with it, it can and will challenge you. As it is there are some fine and good temperament dobs breeders unlike thirty years or so ago whereby dobs do have a bad reputation like the rotties have now. So, if you think you can spend time with it then a dob is best.
Hi, Thankx for the information on dobe....actually i really like dobe but the main problem is the ear cropping on the dobe.....like what you mention if i use to work late than is very difficult for me to look after the ear when is cropped and the time to spend with him....mmnnnn....... btw nice dobe you got there....really gorgeous
Hi again, The ear cropping is really nothing, my advise on that is take the dog back to the vet for the first dressing and by the time the second dressing has to come off the ear is already standing.... a little so the rest is just binding it up. Once the ear has heal it is not really difficult to work with. Thanks about my dob, just mated her infact so now just wait and see, should know in about 5 weeks time. Anyway, just out of interest do let us know on your final choice.
Hi, Is that simple? cause i was going thru so of the forum on ear cropping that some owner complain about they'll dog ear doen't stand after few month and doesn't look nice too...Ok if i really planning to get a dobe would you recommed me to the vet or breeder you crop your dobe? by the way i am from kl where you from? sure no problem i will let you know once i have a look at the mali this weekend or next weekend. than i will make my final decission.... can't wait for it...by the way finally like to know the tempremant of dobe is it good with children and other household pets currently i got 2 dogs (pug and peke)...and once in a while my nephews will come over...congra on your dobe sure no problem one
Hi, Thank you for the information....I really like to have a look on your friend dobs...but I will be out of country from this weekend till next weekend. If is not to troublesome for you is it possible you email me the pic of your friend dobs and some information on it as well....like gender, asking price, colour. to andrewcyw .... Thank you once again if not nevermind I will contact you once I back from overseas...
thanks for your reply. why not you start a topic just on doberman... in conjunction with your new babies... i am very sure there are many malaysian very into dobe, and some are not sure and like to know more. hope you can up date us about this new coming babies.
Wow, thanks for the vote of confidence but you go down the list on Working Dogs, there were a few who started but responsewas extremely bad and as for me I do not feel I know enough of the breed and standard.
