Sometimes all the stars lineup. Tarzan is a large and muscular Belgian Malinois. This boy has off leash obedience and protection. He is highly affectionate and social in all aspects of his life and has balanced drives making him the ideal personal or family protection dog for the most discriminating of connoisseurs. Belgian Malinois are usually very intense and busy dogs with over the top drives and lots of ball possession but not Tarzan, he has drive and likes his ball but he is balanced and unlike most malinois he can turn off easily and lay by your side while you watch TV. If you are looking for a malinois to bounce off your walls like a ping pong ball Tarzan is not it.
