45. Belgian Malinois
The Belgian Malinois has often been confused for a German Shepherd, but they aren’t the same breed at all. They are brilliant and obedient and can be pretty easy to train if you have a strong temperament and are confident. By instinct, these dogs are protective of their owners and are suspicious of people they don’t know. Because they’re mainly trained to be security and police dogs, they require daily exercise and activities that challenge their minds daily. Without these challenges, they can become destructive around the home and won’t hesitate to chew up anything they can sink their teeth into.
