What a beautiful puppy. He is going to be a big one! My favorite pic is the smiling one. But I love them all.

xxxooo to Sniper
Aug 15, 2007 inmemoryofshelby
I meant to give Sniper 11 biscuits. I accidently hit one.

Sorry Sniper....

Beautiful dog!

"CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE"!

What an adorable dog. I have never heard of this breed. I love the dark face! Congrats!

awwww, i just wanna cuddle his widdle face, and kiss his widdle nose:)!!!! 64 buscuits.

Beautiful pup, but saving a life at your local shelter (30% percent are pure breds) or rescue group is the compassionate responsible thing to do, we owe it to our best friends and our community.
Aug 15, 2007 allpupsRperfect
Say Cheese! :)

Sniper is a very handsome young lad. I've never heard of the breed before but already Googled it. One of the joys of the Daily Puppy is learning about furrbabies of any breed.

Thanks for sharing your Sniper antics with us!

Tammatha? We don't come here for lectures. We come here to enjoy beautiful pups, no matter where they come from. I think your comments were inappropriate and ungracious.
That said, Sniper is a gorgeous pup who will no doubt give his people years of happiness. He looks like a joyful guy!
Aug 15, 2007 maddie's mom
Tammatha I agree with caraschotch. I think everyone is entitled to make their choice about the dog they will live with for 20 years. And the proud people who post their puppies here do not want to read your opinions about adoption, that's not the point of this website.
I know this breed very well, they are extremely intelligent dogs, as well as loving friends. Lots of happiness for you with Sniper.

Aw Mum, do ya have to photograph me in the bath!?? How embarrassing! What a precious little face and what a delight to learn about a breed I've never encountered before. 11 biscuits of course.

Sniper is most beautiful and huggy, I just want to smother him with kisses!!!
Aug 15, 2007 princessfif
tamantha, gotta say i agree with the other posts, just enjoy the puppies!

sniper is gorgeous and definitely looks like a protection dog as is said, he looks so healthy and happy, i hope you get heaps of enjoyment out of him! :)

It is very nice to meet you Sniper and thank you for letting us see a breed that we do not know. I have now checked and we do have them in Australia. You look similar to the German Shepherd. You are truly handsome and I love your black smiling face. Enjoy life with your mum and dad, and tell them to give a boy privacy when he is having a bath.
Aug 15, 2007 FireHorse
Sniper is adorable! I love those little toothy pegs. Please give him an extra snuggle from me.
Aug 15, 2007 DogyLvr
Attention! This is one very alert pup. Very handsome too.
Aug 15, 2007 tdcrobins
Tammantha -- This isn't about YOU!! wea ll come here to enjoy puppies so please keep your comments to yourself. That said Sniper is regal and I hope you have a wonderful life with him.

I LOVE SNIPER!!!!! This is the first time I've seen a photo of this breed...and I gotta say it too...no matter WHERE a puppy comes from, they need to be loved unconditionally by their adoptive mommy or daddy...and where mommy or daddy got their adopted baby is a personal choice....and their right. ALL the dogs that need homes in the world, whether they be shelter dogs, pedigrees, strays, it doesn't matter where they are located...they ALL need someone to adopt them and to love them. I LOVE every dog I see; just can't help it, and where they come from makes no difference to me. A dog is a dog is a dog; and everyone is entitled to adopt the dog of their choice....from wherever they please.
To Sniper's parents....God Bless you all, and may Sniper live a very LONG and HEALTHY life with you and may his and your days be filled with love and happiness.

I ALSO AGREE THAT THIS SITE IS ABOUT THE PUPPIES, AND LECTURES ARE NOT WANTED OR APPRECIATED! THAT SAID, SNIPER IS SIMPLY PRECIOUS! I HAVE HEARD OF THIS BREED, LARGELY BECAUSE THEY ARE USED BY POLICE AGENCIES ALL OVER THE WORLD!! SMART CHOICE!!!
Aug 15, 2007 yoliesf
He's georgeous and the personality to go with it. I love that he loves to snuggle even though he is sooooo big! So sweeet!
Enjoy!
Aug 15, 2007 Terry C
Nothing like a 77 pound lap dog.

He's a cutie.
Aug 15, 2007 vegasmom
I love those googy, loopy ears!! He looks so happy, and will certianly make you happy every single day! ENJOY!!

Sniper looks like an absolute joy! He is b.e.a.utiful! 55 biscuits, kisses on the nose and belly rubs from me! Best wishes.
Aug 15, 2007 collieville
Absolutely adore Sniper!!!! What a B-e-a-utiful Little fella.

Cant you all see that you are giving Tamantha what they want by even discussing her comments. They are quite right but here is not the place. While even a reaction is recieved it will envoke more such comments! Cone on guys lets just enjoy the puppiness!!!
Aug 15, 2007 Woofins
You are saying I will grow up to be 'HOW BIG'
What a cutie!!!!
Aug 15, 2007 oneacd
Finally! A Mal puppy! I am so excited. Sniper is gorgeous and comes from my part of Canada. He may be related to my rescue if he is now about 18 mos old. We have 2 of the very active beasts and they entertain us every day. Watch for the teeth "clacking" -- haven't yet seen a Mal that doesnt' do it!
Aug 15, 2007 Ozzy2975
CUTE BOY :) LOVE THE "SMILE".
Aug 15, 2007 GeniaNC
Having worked for a police department for a number of years, I've only seen these guys full grown. But they were always amazing dogs so I knew they had to come from adorable pups. Along with the vast majority, I low the smile pic - just look at all those baby teeffers! Sniper, you rock little man. Keep protecting (loving) your humans and give them big sloppy puppy kisses numerous times a day.
Tammantha (GeniaNC shaking head in disappointment) you know what I'm thinking... enough said.

CLASSIC BEAUTY!!!
Aug 15, 2007 savon19
VERY handsome pup! ...wonder why pups get that forlorn look when they get a bath? Soooo cute.
Aug 15, 2007 DogMom
Sniper -- you are one handsome boy dog! YOu deserve extra snuggles every day!!!! Beautiful dog -- I love it when their ears are not quite done maturing -- they are so silly looking on a very serious looking face!!! Enjoy your lovely mandog!

You will find this pup to be a great addition to you family protection!
They make wonderful, smart watch dogs...

OH MY WHAT A BEAUTY! Lots of puppy hugs and kisses!
Aug 15, 2007 moviefreak
I love seeing new breeds on this site! What a georgeous puppy! I have always loved German Shepherds and now this breed goes right on that Love List! I don't think we could handle such a gentle giant, but treats to anyone who gives these guys a happy home! I hope you keep him nice and busy. Lots of belly rubs!
Aug 15, 2007 skelty
What a gorgeous dog!!! I LOVE the floppy ears and black tail!! I definitely come on here to look at beautiful puppy pictures not for lectures! But I don't think "what Tammantha wanted" was to upset or annoy people. Also, she wasn't trying to make it "all about her" - as some of you stated. Some people are unaware of the puppy mill/pet shop cycle. What is wrong with educating people? I don't like to think about it either - but does ignoring it make it go away? If we are afraid to speak up about what we believe in for fear of getting flak from others than we may as well stand for nothing. -There, now you can all yell at me, instead of Tammantha.
Aug 15, 2007 JulieS77
Sniper is beautiful! I have a Malinois myself and she is an excellent dog/member of our family! Love the bath photo! You will enjoy him for many years to come!
Aug 15, 2007 neran
Sniper's a beauty. I own two Malinois. They are very intelligent, loving, and there is never a dull moment in the house with one. You will find that long black nose into everything you do!! I'm guessing he will top out at about 85lbs. That will be an 85 lbs lap dog!! Enjoy him and I am so glad you chose this breed. Puppy kisses and 11 biscuits
Aug 15, 2007 shellyrini
I have never heard of this breed before. i love him
What a great looking dog.

Good luck
Aug 15, 2007 thetopazsmurf
He is a very hansome, thick, boy..Have years of fun..He is beautiful..
Aug 15, 2007 more
I love big dogs who think they're lap dogs! He's a very handsome boy!!!!
Aug 15, 2007 zoozieQ
too cute!
Aug 15, 2007 Giada777
I love those ears! Beautiful dog.
Aug 15, 2007 lacey
I love the ears so much on this breed I can't stand it! I first saw this breed on the Animal Planet doing some serious competition. I was very impressed with their intelligence! Love this guy!!
Aug 15, 2007 werleybird
I've never heard of this breed either. But I'm definately going to find out more. I think he is absolutely beautiful!!! From the tip of his "little" black nose to the tip of his tail. Especially those teeth & ears! I would love the chance to snuggle with Sniper too! Enjoy your many years of happiness together.
We were going to get a mal. for our first dog but decided we would like her to be smaller (ours is 40lbs.) and, yes, Ares is a shelter pup. I agree with tammatha and skelty, but some people feel the same way about shelter pups as we feel about breeder/pet store pups!!!! But there is nothing wrong about educating, I guess!!
Anyway, what a beautiful pup and hope you have a great life with him!!! The breed is very intelligent!!!
Aug 15, 2007 Chiefsfan
I must say, I have never heard of this breed, but believe me its LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!!!
He is sooooooo beautiful. 11 biscuits to you Sniper.
Aug 15, 2007 Boxer
[i]Careful not to let her fly away with those ears :)[/i]
Aug 15, 2007 jimandtrishp
He is so handsome. I love his coloring. Much happiness to you and Sniper.
Aug 15, 2007 txmadre
The ears!! I LOVE the ears and I love the face! What a sweetheart Sniper is and how lucky are you to have him? This is a truly beautiful and amazing breed, regardless of here he came from. Bless you and I hope you have years and years of love with Sniper.
Aug 15, 2007 xthexjessx
he is just too cute! look at those "what did i do to deserve this" eyes!
Aug 15, 2007 rozee9893
Awww!!! :) so cute!!! I want another dog now, but my dog hates other dogs....too bad. Good luck with your "lap dog"
Love him!!!! (Cute name, too!!!)
Aug 15, 2007 rozee9893
Omg!!! What gorgeous floppy ears!!!
Aug 15, 2007 my_stoney_baby
How cute! I have never heard of this breed, but he is very handsome to be sure! :)

I love him, I love him, I love him! He's PERFECT!!!

Tammatha,

Do you enjoy trying to make owners of puppies feel guilty? Whether that is your intent or not, that is the way it comes off. While I respect your right to an opinion, The Daily Puppy is not the venue for you to get on your soap box. People don't go there to be "educated" about puppy mills. They go to enjoy the puppies regardless of where they were obtained. Obviously we are all dog lovers or we wouldn't be there in the first place. And, obviously, we are not stupid. We are well rounded, intelligent individuals who are very much aware of the plight of shelter dogs. We are capable of making our own determinations and decisions regarding this issue and we don't go to The Daily Puppy to be lectured. Please, stop ruining it for the rest of us and find the correct venue for your lectures. The Daily Puppy is a website about people who love their puppies enough to share them with the world and it is a place for people to send positive comments to the owners and appreciation for sharing their puppy with us. I think you owe the owners of Sniper and all those that post an apology, but I'm sure they don't expect to receive one.Tammatha,

He looks adorable in every pic!! I LOVE his chocolate dipped tail!!!! Soooooo cute!
Aug 15, 2007 charliesdad
Ya know, I agree with the person who said your first pick should be a pound... there ARE alot of pups that just beg to be adopted from pounds... my pup is a pound puppy as well and he's a wonderful dog! However, it's not our business to pass judgement on pups or their human parents based on where you get your dog from and it's not fair to do so.

Now then... having hopped on and off my soap box... Sniper, you're a handsome pup. And so smart, it looks like you took your OWN self pic!! Never heard of the breed, I don't think. It's a joy to meet a new pup! :)
Aug 15, 2007 Ems
"I am a serious, mature, well-mannered puppy....no matter what my ears might think!"

He's truly adorable, enjoy your oversized lap dog. They are the best! Lots of belly rubs and sloppy kisses, too!
Aug 15, 2007 bopeep
Snuggle Sniper, you are one handsome pup. Regardless of how big you get, you keep on snuggling sweetie. Hugs and kisses.
Aug 15, 2007 ilovedoggies
I never thought I would write on a puppy forum commenting about the people who write stuff, rather than commenting about the pup. But it makes me sick to see people write pages and pages about puppy shelters, mills, etc.
First of all how do we know Where Sniper came from? I had to re-read what his parents have written to see if they have mentioned anything about a "Mill" or "breader" or "pound". How quickly people jump in to conclusions. It's good to see there are many people who wants to rescue a puppy from a shelter. But people, don't forget, everyone has a free will and if they choose to find a bundle of love from a breader, it's their choice...

Anyway for Sniper... you are a handsome boy who will grow up to be a awesome companion to your parents... Sending you more snuggles and I love your pink puppy ears....
Aug 15, 2007 gryt
Sniper is one adorable pup! LOVE the snuggle story, him tearing down the hall, racing to get his snuggles!! Suuuuper sweet doggy. :)
Aug 15, 2007 Wild Dove
Sniper is such a handsome fella. Mom & Dad I hope that you get plenty of exercise, because you will need strong laps for when your little man gets bigger.

I love this picture, those eyes!!!!!
Aug 15, 2007 stormdog
What a precious little/big man! I mean, he will be huge, but someone you will enjoy putting your hands around and giving a great big ol' hug! I loved it when your pet parent said, "Snuggle" is a word he knows well. When he's at the other side of the house and we say, "Who wants to snuggle?" he tears down the hall and vaults himself onto the bed, throwing his body into ours. Who wouldn't love being loved this way! Take very good care of him and he will continue to love and cherish you!
Aug 15, 2007 ilovedoggies
PS : Thank you Sniper's parents for sharing his pictures with us... I wish I could have a puppy.. someday when I get a big enough place where the landlords will allow me to have one, I will get a big lap dog as well... :)
Aug 15, 2007 roscoeroxypepper
what an absolutley beautiful pup!!!!

Aug 15, 2007 babydoll
What a very cute puppy . Congratulations . May you have a very long life with him . Favorite picture is of him smiling...How you get him to do that?
Aug 15, 2007 feismom
EARS!!! I love those ears! As someone else posted, that chocolate dipped tail is also beyond cute. Enjoy your snuggles! I snuggle a 75 lb baby every night at bedtime. It sure helps keep you warm in the winter!
Aug 15, 2007 ee1izzie
I love the photo juxtaposition of the soggy woebegone bath puppy and the next one, a fluffy dry and proud puppy!

And my two cents on the controversy, instead of lecturing people on where they get their puppies, how about a lecture on the need to spay or neuter (unless you are going to deliberately breed pups) to prevent strays and abandoned critters in the first place?

But mainly I agree this is not the place for crabbing at each other but a place to enjoy the variety and beauty of the puppy universe.
Aug 15, 2007 mrsackey
Oh my goodness! Look at that face. What a handsome fella! I couldn't decide between this huge grin or the bath picture where he looks like he is say, "Please save me from this torture." LOL. If I could pick two favs, I would. What a sweetheart! I love that he knows the word "Snuggle!" Very sweet!!
Aug 15, 2007 doggielover80
he is the cutest thing! what a sweetie! my dog thinks she's a lap dog, too (she's a german shep- about 75 lbs). he's a very beautiful dog and sounds like a lot of fun!
Aug 15, 2007 nash5081
I'm another person who had never heard of a Belgian Malinois, but am very impressed. Sniper is a gorgeous boy! He's so cute as a puppy, that awkward stage where he's not sure what to do with those huge appendages, and his ears, well his ears just don't where to go.(LOL) But I can see from the photo I picked, it's all coming together. Many happy years together, He is a beautiful dog!
Aug 15, 2007 pfibak
What a beautiful dog!!!! Our whole dog loving family is admiring him. We wish you lots of luck and love with him.
Aug 15, 2007 nash5081
SORRY SNIPER!!!!! I THINK WE SHOULD IGNORE THESE PEOPLE FROM NOW ON (IT'S ALWAYS THE SAME ONES AND THEY REFUSE TO USE THE FORUM, LIKE MICHAEL AND I HAVE ASKED THEM TO, SO FROM NOW ON ..... LET'S JUST IGNORE THEM AND MAYBE THEY WILL STOP!!!
PS. AREN'T YOU GLAD YOU DON'T KNOW THESE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE
Aug 15, 2007 plantsforjenny
Nice smile! I love puppy teeth!

[b][color=red]i love belgian shepherds in genreal, but you never see them enough! im sure even when sniper is an even bigger dog, he'll still want to cuddle just as much![/c][/b]
Aug 15, 2007 Bobbie
Oh, my dear Heaven's! Why can't this just be a site to look at pictures of beautiful puppies and tell their owners how lucky they are to have them in their lives? I may stop visiting this site, if the "children" continue to fuss at each other! As for Sniper, what a handsome ,( but I can't say little, can I?) young man! Love the smiley picture, but all of the others too, so didn't choose a favoritI wish you many years of love and happieness with your boy and for you, Sniper, many belly rubs and a railroad car full of bisquits! You deserve them. Keep up the good work, protecting your human family!
Aug 15, 2007 ckporter73
Sniper is so handsome! I would love to have snuggles with him anytime!! He sounds like a joy and I wish you years of fun together.
Aug 15, 2007 LucyB
What a Gorgeous dog! They are one of my favorite breeds and I almost never see one apart from the yearly Westminster show on TV.Thank you SO MUCH for giving me a glimpse of this beauty to brighten my day!
Aug 15, 2007 Sally
Hi Sniper! You are too cute! Who wants to snuggle??? :)
Aug 15, 2007 BeckersUNC
Sniper is such a handsome boy. I'd love to see more pics when he is all grown up—I bet he'll be huge! (More doggie to snuggle with!) :)
Aug 15, 2007 citydog
Nothing makes me melt and go "Awwwwwwwww!" as much as a baby Belgian in a tub. :)

Hi,
Sniper is a beautiful PuppyBoy. I love the earnest look in his eyes. I think you have a wonderful snuggler here and soooo handsome!

Tooooo cute!! Watch out for those big brown eyes or he'll have ya trained :) Love the ears!

(I'm sure Sniper's parents know this, but German Shepherds are all 1/4 Mals)
Aug 15, 2007 SnugglesinJA
This is my first comment on the Daily Puppy. I came across the site on Monday and fell in love with the puppies immediately.

I wonder what Sniper has on his mind...lunch? He's soooo adorable!
Aug 15, 2007 FRITZY
Too cute!!!
Aug 15, 2007 poohmama
I agree with Bobbie. Some of you people need to get over yourselves. This site is to look at beautiful puppies and comment on how cute the dog is. Keep the rest to yourselves. Sniper I wish you and your family years of happiness and fun. You are an adorable puppy. What a great dog!!!!
Aug 15, 2007 hvnfnyt
Great pose! i used to help train Police dogs and this was a popular breed. very loyal and super smart! Your baby is adorable!
Aug 15, 2007 babydollp80
What a good little boy? He really come to attention. I love that you call who needs to snuggle that wonderful.

I have a little boy too that when he lays on my chest he hugs me like a person.

Enjoy you baby

Re: TAMMATHA'S COMMENT: I don't usually say much, just enjoy the puppys every morning. Sitting at my feet as I write this is my 10-wk. old English Mastiff puppy. Am I supposed to feel guilty or somehow not compassionate AND irresponsible for having her and not adopting a shelter dog? My husband and I were in the process of searching for a rescue or shelter dog, but a friend had a crisis and needed to find homes quickly for his unplanned-for litter (irresponsible, I know....). We had always wanted an English Mastiff and here was our chance, so we took it. My heart bleeds every day for the homeless animals, I lose sleep over animal abuse stories in the news, I would give anything if I had a large piece of property where I could take in numerous animals. Maybe one day that will happen, but I don't appreciate being considered uncaring - that's ridiculous! Please don't be so self-righteous and judgmental, and go elsewhere to voice your opinion and work for what you believe in. It's sad that a wonderful & lighthearted site such as this should make anyone feel bad!
Aug 15, 2007 doggone1973
Eat your heart out Brooke Shields, check my smile out, and i get more belly rubs, too. LOL! You are so cute Sniper!
Aug 15, 2007 dlb54739
He is so cute, never heard of the breed but would be a number one on my list. Love the ears... reminds me of my daughters puppy. Doesn't matter where you got him, he is yours, so... Love him forever. He is adorable.
Aug 15, 2007 Loizhanne
[color=red][B]Sniper, you are truly a dog after my own heart. To smile is to let the soul breathe, and you seem to be righteously aerated! Blessings and belly rubs to you, sweet![/color][/B]

Beautiful puppy - Gonna be a real pal for you - and already is. Hugs & kisses.....

I think I'm experiencing a serious case of puppy love! What an absolutely darling boy!
Aug 15, 2007 TDoyle
This is my favorite breed! My husband & I had a Belgain Malinois for 13 wonderful years! He was the BEST dog! Love Sniper with all of your heart and he will surely love you back 10 fold!

What a little love bug!! I love his heart shaped face!!! Kisses!

What a handsome pooch!!

While my guess is that Tammantha meant well, I think it was irresponsible for her to chastise Sniper's parents for not adopting him from a shelter when Sniper's description said nothing about how or where he was adopted. The description only says "purebred," which implies that they know Sniper's parents- but they also could have adopted Sniper from a friend, or from a shelter where the mommy had puppies in captivity...the bottom line is that we don't know how Sniper was adopted.

Personally, I abhor breeders and feel very angry every time that someone boasts about buying a dog from a breeder for a good price. But, how to adopt is a personal choice that each dog parent must make, and there is no point in making someone feel bad about adopting a dog when the adoption is already complete and the dog is happy in his new home. So, Tammantha, I agree with you, but I think that your comments would be more appropriate (1) to someone who is thinking about adopting, rather than to someone who has already adopted, and (2) where we know that the dog was not a resuce pup.

Sniper, you are darling, and your parents obviously love you very much!! What a lucky pup.

AWWWWW!!!!! Sniper is soooooooo cute!!!! My favorite picture is the one where he is looking up!!!!!!
Aug 15, 2007 goldenluvr
And here I thought I was such a "dog authority," as I am familiar with some of the more obscure breeds, but this is a new one on me! Sniper is a doll! The pic of him taking a bath is a trip, he looks so tiny there, yet so big and full of himself in the other pics! I love, love, love that you let him in the bed and it made me laugh out loud to think of this big furball running down the hall when you ask who wants to snuggle! My husband says, "Who's ready for bed?" and all of ours go running to the room! As for the other controversy, I think we each make the right decisions for ourselves when we choose to adopt a pet, whether from a pound or a rescued stray off the side of the road (we have 4 of those), or whether it's a purebred purchased from a breeder (2 of those). All that matters is that you have made that lifetime commitment to that little furbaby. Yes, I agree that spay and neuter is very important. Unfortunately, you can't educate the ignorant no matter how long you stand on the soap box!!

And here I thought I was such a "dog authority," as I am familiar with some of the more obscure breeds, but this is a new one on me! Sniper is a doll! The pic of him taking a bath is a trip, he looks so tiny there, yet so big and full of himself in the other pics! I love, love, love that you let him in the bed and it made me laugh out loud to think of this big furball running down the hall when you ask who wants to snuggle! My husband says, "Who's ready for bed?" and all of ours go running to the room! As for the other controversy, I think we each make the right decisions for ourselves when we choose to adopt a pet, whether from a pound or a rescued stray off the side of the road (we have 4 of those), or whether it's a purebred purchased from a breeder (2 of those). All that matters is that you have made that lifetime commitment to that little furbaby. Yes, I agree that spay and neuter is very important. Unfortunately, you can't educate the ignorant no matter how long you stand on the soap box!!

Who wants to snuggle? Oh me me me me! Sniper's too cute!
Now, it IS better to adopt - that's undisputable if you love animals and care about saving lives. Stop getting angry. Of course it's your choice to buy a dog. Whatever.
Aug 15, 2007 daisymae
god bless you for getting such a beautiful pup! I forgot how much I love this breed. what a protector and personality into one! how lucky you are.. better show us more pics as he gets older. I don't even know if I can pick a favorite picture but this one will have to do! and will probably end up on my desktop here shortly

oh and save the soap box for the forums please, we're just here to enjoy our pups, this talk is disturbing the view.
blessings.

LOOK MA....NO CAVATIES!!
This dog is too cute for words. From the aw shucks 'naked' picture in the tub, to the magestic one right after and all the floppy ears and stuff right behind. We have a 100 pound lab dog so I know your pain (pleasure) I am another that will go look up this breed. Sniper, you rock!!

Great toofers.

"Tammatha? We don't come here for lectures. We come here to enjoy beautiful pups, no matter where they come from. I think your comments were inappropriate and ungracious"

THANKS FOR POSTING THAT - I think the vast majority of us feel the same way!! That said...

Sniper is gorgeous and whereever he came from we all know he will be and is well loved and cared for - he is obviously a lifer with his owners and looks to be a wonderfully happy outgoing growing (77lbs!!!) puppy anyone would love to own....

Hey Snipper....lets cuddle!!!
Aug 15, 2007 LeonoraLee
What a lovely pup! I also have two Belgian lapdogs (Tervuerens). My eldest is 13, and I am getting of an age where grooming those coats is becoming difficult, and so I've been thinking about getting a Malinois next time around. I see you got your pup in Ontario -- would you mind sharing the name of the breeder? Meanwhile, enjoy him - he will bring you such joy over the years.

"Hey ma... I can take my own picture!"
He is so adorable! I'm coming to steal Sniper ;) JK
And I'm sure we all know the sound of stampeeding dogs when we say "bedtime!" But thats the best part about bedtime! At least it puts a smile on my face every night!
Have a great time with Sniper... and if you ever need a dog sitter, send him down to Texas with me! :D

Note: I'm not here to debate or judge, but no one else should be either (TAMMATHA)... this is a website to share puppy happiness! I would hate to miss out on a great set of puppy pics because someone won't post them for fear of judgement and harsh opinions. If you are completely against dog breeding, then go to a pro-rescue website and voice your opinion there. STOP DOING IT HERE!

He's gorgeous and has so much personality! WOW - those teeth - what a ham! :-) That's a beautiful breed and he's just lovely.

I just wanted to take a second and thank everyone for their comments. Sniper has been a complete joy to us, and definitely keeps us on our toes.

In regards to the "smile" pic...that was all him. He stared at me like that for about 30 seconds before I picked up the camera and held the look until I took the shot.

We couldn't love him more! We definitely have tons of pictures of him, and I will share them at any time.

Thanks again! (I'll make sure I read all the comments to Sniper, or at least all that are directed to him)
Aug 15, 2007 chipsmom
Love the name! Sniper is adorable. 11 Biscuits! Hope you have many happy years together! :)

As for the continuing comments drama on this site - I've decided that from now on I'm going to enjoy the pictures, pick a favorite and post an nice comment if I want to and just not read the other comments. It's such a shame that some people feel the need to ruin it for others.
Aug 15, 2007 birdygirl
I love the smile, my Louie dog does that. Sniper's a beautiful boy I wish I could give him more biscuits.
Aug 15, 2007 revelryotis
All of my babies were from shelters. The first passed away from a birth defect. My 2 beautiful labs, from shelters, I lost to horrible bouts with cancer. When I decided to get another dog, I went to a marvelous breeder, where I could go back and look at the family history and have the least chance of that happening again. Of course, if my baby were to get sick, I would do everything in my power to get him well and keep the quality of life at it's best. But, I really needed to know from where he came. All that matters with dogs, is that we treat them with the unconditional love and respect that they treat us, what does it matter where he came from. If we did that with people, it would be awful.....love your dogs and be happy.........Oh, and Sniper is awesome!!!!!!

What a gorgeous gorgeous pup....love all the photos
Aug 15, 2007 HappyPup
Beautiful, adorable puppy, even though shepherd dogs are not my favourite breed, but it doesn't matter. I would most certainly adopt one from a shelter if it had to be. I don't like this "argument" over shelter puppies vs breeders and everyone is entitled to their opinion. I have two elderly dogs whom I had bought from small, caring breeders, one in France and the other in Russia. I have also adopted a little dog from a shelter. And I must say I find it inappropriate that someone here said she "abhors breeders". Now of course if she had said she abhors puppy mills, I would have agreed wholeheartedly. But many breeders are caring, loving people who are concerned with the welfare of their beloved breeds. Of course there are just as many who think they can make money by raising and selling puppies and kittens, skimping on food, vaccines, etc. Sorry, I just couldn't help writing this. Anyway, Sniper is an absolute doll - he looks like he dipped his tail in black paint :-) and that smile....
Aug 15, 2007 jmatta2000
Okay, I just signed up for The Daily Puppy and I saw Sniper right away. I HAD to foward over the website to my boss, who has been looking at the perfect breed of dog to get for his family. Sniper does that breed right; unfortunately, I also hit only one biscuit for him. I apologize!!! I would have gladly given him 11, but I wasn't sure how that rating system worked and I didn't know that it was going to cut me off right away after I hit on the one biscuit. YOU ARE AN 11, SNIPER!!!
Aug 15, 2007 pugswill
So many have commented on the "teeth" picture - my first take was "DO NOT INTERRUPT MY NAP!" Sniper is absolutely darling and I love the name you chose. Hope you have many happy, healthy years together. He is a beautiful pup and has a very expressive face! 11 biscuits for sure
Aug 15, 2007 puppypower
i've seen Belgian Malinois on Animal Planets "Breed all about it" and i gotta say that Sniper outshines the pups they had featured on that episode! he is adorable!!!

here's to a long lifetime of snuggles (from one big lapdog owner to another)
Aug 15, 2007 dottiejean28
you should put the smiley pic on puppy war, he would get so many votes!

as for *you know who*, i had tried to get a shelter dog, but all the shelters in my area have nothing BUT big (but beautiful) dogs, and when you have an apartment and want a companion, you have to go with what size pup you can accomodate and keep happy...granted i would have loved nothing more than taking home a giant furry german shepard from the shelter....but neither of us would have been happy.
i got my shih tzu puppy dottie jean at a breeder, and have NO regrets....when i get a bigger place to live, you can bet your bottom dollar that i will consider a shelter first, but im not on here like you are lambasting everyone or trying to make them feel guilty
Aug 15, 2007 bayley's mom
I like many others had never heard of this breed....I actually went out today and bought a dog book because I keep seeing beautiful puppies on the Daily Puppy that I have never heard of!! Sniper is an absolute beauty. I'm sure you will have many years of happiness with him!

I have the Daily Puppy on my homepage and it gives me great joy to open it up every day and see all the gorgeous puppies. I am very sick and tired of reading Tammantha's comments, and it's really too bad because what she believes in is not such a bad thing....it's where and how it's presented that is wrong. Rescuing puppies is wonderful and the more people who can do it the better, but Tammantha if you think that coming on here and saying the things you do is the way to reach people, you're wrong. All you're doing is making people mad for ruining their enjoyment of the Daily Puppy. Go to the forum and discuss it all you want. There have been a couple of discussions on it there and that is the appropriate place for this discussion.

All puppies deserve a loving caring home and as long as they have that.....that's all that matters. And as Bob Barker used to say, Help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered.
Aug 15, 2007 sandi
What a handsome lad . I love 70+ lbs cuddle muffins :) and he could sit in my lap anytime. He sounds like a wonderful pup. I know he will be a great protector and a loving asset to your family. I hope you have many happy year with this sweet fellow. I love those ears! I, also, like the pic 2 up from this one, he looks lie he is doing a stalking walk-- cute,

Beautiful dog and a breed I'm not familiar with. Thanks for sharingl
Aug 15, 2007 Tracy Kemmer
Look at those little puppy teeth. So cute. Just wait until they "grow into him" how huge they get. Keep them brushed and start now, so he can get used to it. That way he will have healthy choppers. Love him!!!!!!!!!!

Sniper (great name!) is a very handsome boy indeed -- I've never had the pleasure of meeting a Belgian in person, but I see how your mommy and daddy would want to snuggle at any available opportunity!
Aug 15, 2007 lovemybrowndog
i LOOOVE the picture of sniper in the bath! what a good dog- so expressive. i am sure that over the years you will have many great pictures of sniper hamming it up in front of the camera, i hope that we get to see them someday (maybe as the grown up puppy of the day ;)!

as for the other debate, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, in the end, all that matters is that sniper is in a safe loving home and that he is happy. and it looks like he is. just think of sniper's parents- posting his pix was supposed to be a positive experience for them, and now i worry that it wasn't. sniper, i'm sorry that this turned into people "sniping" at each other...

for the people to love breeders, hate breeders, love shelters, etc.- the common thread is that we all LOVE DOGS, and i think we should focus on that and on enjoying our daily puppies. i will just try to remember that everyone here means well, and that their differences of opinion are due to their different ideas of how best to love dogs. hooray to everyone for loving dogs SO much!!

and hooray for sniper for being such a cute pup. the bath picture is my favorite!!
Aug 15, 2007 javamom
What a handsome boy- and so photogenic! Love the smile and the sad puppy face at bath time! Long life and many yummy bones to you Sniper!
Aug 15, 2007 starkelpie
Sorry to offend, HappyPup. The breeders that you know sound very different than the breeders that I know, and I'm glad that you have had positive experiences (and I hope that I meet a breeder who changes my mind). I apologize for posting my feelings about breeders on this site and generalizing about all breeders.

I tried to make it clear in my earlier post that I understand that each person should make his or her own personal choice about how to adopt. My personal choice would not involve a breeder, because of my personal experiences. Someone else's personal choice could be different and I would not have a problem with that as long as their dog was well loved and cared for. Hopefully this second comment will make it clear where my first comment did not. Again, sorry for offending any breeders or dog parents out there. I should not have generalized that way.

I got my Maltese from a breeder 2yr and 2 mo ago(needed for allergies). Since then I've adopted a senior stray Maltese, foster 2 senior Maltese until they got to their forever homes, transported 2 to their foster homes, where they subsequently went on to their forever homes. I volunteer with a local no kill shelter and have knocked on doors for 2 little guys who escaped from their home, returning them before harm came to them. My guy has done more in 2 years to touch lives, to save lives then many have a chance to. He is therapy dog visiting hospital patients. He is my unexpected hero. Sometimes inspiration comes from unexpected places. The love a dog can make a person a better person.

You have to love that smile. He looks like a German Shepherd, so I know he's going to be a good companion and guard. We got out present German Shepherd "type" dog when I rescued her from a bad situation a few blocks away. I saw my little Glory (looking like a miniature Shepherd) and just knew that my husband would love her. He did - at first sight - and we've never regretted keeping her. Enjoy your bright and beautiful little boy. Shepherd types are great dogs.

i think sniper is a beautiful dog. i have a purebread visla who is 6 and a boston terrier/pit mix who i adopted from the humane society over 17 years ago, he's an old fart now, but we love him just the same. i think tamantha had the right idea to begin with, but it should be the owners choice where they get their lifetime companion from. good luck with sniper!
Aug 15, 2007 MisMal
Wow, how amazing is this breed?! I have never seen this breed before, I'm not sure we have them in Australia...he looks very similar to a German Shepard, and I'm guessing from a few of the "Police Dog" comments that they have the same type of personality and intellect.

Congratulations on your handsome boy, you can tell he's very loved!

This one of him smiling is definitely a prize-winning photo! He looks almost human! What a lapdog (did you say 77 lbs already?!) The police in the Memphis area use them as K9 dogs, too. I've heard a lot of great things about this breed. I hope you all have many wonderful years together! (I especially liked your comment about him helping you get rid of a lot of junk from under the bed!)
Aug 15, 2007 llt214
Add me to the list of Sniper's many admirers...he is ONE MAGNIFICENT DOG!!! Just look at that face, it just melts my heart! Awww...I think I'm in love! I hope you enjoy many happy years together. I'd love to see him as he gets older, so please consider posting his pictures as a "grown-up puppy". Huge kisses to Sniper! XOXOXO

What a cutie!
Aug 15, 2007 oneacd
I agree, the black snoot is adorable, but I'm predjudiced, I have two of these guys! The button eyes kill me too! ("You will feed me now...).
77 lbs is pretty huge for a Mally. 60 is a more common max for a boy. These guys are a big job to own tho. Busy, busy busy! Still wonder if stunning Sniper is a brother of my rescue girlie. Hope his people can say how old he is now.
Aug 15, 2007 lovemydogs7
I also never heard of this breed. He is wonderful! He reminds me of my son's German Shepard. I love this pic with his ears. Altho all of them were great. Congrats on such a beautiful puppy. Many happy wonderful years together.

Very handsome little guy you have there. He has that kind of face you could smooch all day long and never get tired of it. I love big dogs but then again I love medium and small dogs also. They all have their own special personalitys and beauty. Have a wonderful life with your cutie pie. Spoil him rotten he deserves it they all do.

I love all the pictures...but as Sniper's "Auntie" I'm biased. Sniper has been a wonderful addition to our family & is very well loved & cared for by his parents. Sniper is also great with children & responded early on to "sit commands" from my 7 year old. Sniper was a very special gift to his parents & I'm happy to read the comments that recognize this about him. He brings us great love & oh, yes great snuggles! Happy Puppy viewing all!
Aug 16, 2007 Yankee-7
Okay, I don't want to get into this thing, but folks, PLEASE stop it! If you haven't already noticed, NOBODY CARES, and no one who's on here came here to be "educated" about "puppy mills." besides, the dog didn't even COME FROM a mill, so just shut up! People have a right to buy what ever dog they choose from whichever source, some prefer purebreds, and that's their choice. No one should be hating them for it!
Very sweet dog!

Now, who wants a snuggle?
Aug 16, 2007 newfie57
Well, what can I say about my "grandpuppy". Yup, I'm the grandma! And, I want everyone to know - you don't want to be in the hallway when he goes barrelling through to get his "snuggle". He is a very smart puppy, and we love him to pieces.
Aug 16, 2007 puppyluv
This is the most hysterical picture of a dog that I've ever seen. Malinois are magnificent creatures; you are lucky to have him.

As for this purebreed vs shelter vs puppy mill vs designer dogs vs whatever debate: PEOPLE: THERE IS A "FORUM" SECTION ON THIS SITE WHERE WE CAN DEBATE OUR OPINIONATED LITTLE HEARTS OUT!!!!! LOOK ON THE UPPER RIGHT HAND SIDE AND DIRECT YOUR COMMENTS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AND LEAVE THESE POOR PUPPY OWNERS ALONE!
Aug 17, 2007 ShepherdMom
I am another who has never heard of the breed but he is so adorable. Wishing you years of happiness and love with him.
Aug 17, 2007 Yankee-7
Thanks puppyluv - everyone, heed this person's advice, and stop using up good space on an adorable puppy's page for your debates. Someone has kindly put a topic page in the forum for you folks - which I regret ever getting into in the first place however, because of the insantiy of you all - so please use it, and leave us puppy lovers alone!
Aug 17, 2007 Yankee-7
1 more thing - one puppy's page was already horribly ruined by you folks who like to attack others about puppy mills, this pup being Ginger the Shih Tzu Mix... :x So, if you can't or don't want to go onto the forum, and you REALLY ACTUALLY want to be "educated" as to these "mills." I suggest that you leave it with one puppy page that you ruined, and stop ruining other pages... PLEASE!
Aug 17, 2007 Kenzi
This is my first time hearing about this breed, but he's a very handsome little guy! Looks like he'll grow up to be a great companion.

Sniper is one beautiful Mal! They're a FANTASTIC breed, I have one myself.

As for the shelter v. breeder debate - I actually GOT my Mal from a shelter, as his entire litter was mis-identified as a Shep/? mix. It wasn't long before we had confirmed exactly what he was.

Purebred dogs can also be shelter dogs, but ALL dogs are special!

Great dog, bright as a button and fully in control of his owners (or will be soon!)

Malinois are a variant of the Belgian Shepherd and are a wonderful, super-smart breed - up there with border collies and beagles in the doggy IQ stakes. If you want to know more, it's worth checking out the American Belgian Malinois Club home page which has a wealth of information (see link below). I've also included a link to the ABMC Malinois Rescue site (which should please Tammatha!) if you're interested in adopting one of these superb dogs.

There isn't a single picture of this boy that isn't heart-worthy but the ears really got me in this one! It's easy to see that what Morlvera says about the breed being intelligent is true; Sniper's brightness jumps right out of the picture through those adorable eyes. I'm another one who is new to this breed. Thanks for sharing him!
Aug 20, 2007 akprincess72
Sniper's Parents, I apologize for for all this mess on your baby's 'debut' page.
Thank you for informing me of another breed I hadn't heard of! Sniper is a beautiful boy. I have a rottie who is a lap dog & so I share your joy of snuggling with big dogs! Please ignore the static & post more pictures as he matures. He is obviously quite intelligent & loving. Congrats on your new addition!
Aug 20, 2007 DebbyD
What a GORGEOUS baby! Love the ears and that "smile". This is a breed I was not familiar with, and have done some reseach now. Thanks for the learinging experience! He's great! 11 puppy cookies for him!
Aug 20, 2007 SoozieQ
[color=blue][b]YAY![/b] We have a Malinois as well....got him when he was 8 weeks old and he'll be 3 years old in January. *QUITE* a handful as a puppy, but so totally worth it. Our Mali also thinks he's a lapdog and will slowing inch his 81 lb. body into the recliner with my husband and act like it's totally normal.

Sniper is a super handsome boy.

Congrats and wishing you many happy and fun memories to be made![/color]

I wish I knew what you guys are feeding Sniper to make him so healthy. My Malinois is a year old and will not eat. He barely weighs 55 lbs. He is so thin. I have tried everything to make him eat.

He is so cute! I have a 6 month old Belgian names Leonidas and he loves to snuggle too! They are great dogs, but they need constant interaction.
