Sup. I have a kingsnake, crested gecko and a mountain cur. I live in the South. I am a naturalist by profession, but don't assume any of my views, stances, and arguments. My feet are firmly on the ground.

Yeah, sadly there are a few Belgians in rescue. ): They're not a great match for most people's lifestyles, but they're very pretty. (Biased? Naw...) It's great that she found a home, though!

High energy doesn't mean poorly behaved, necessarily, but it's nice that she was calm. If I take Elsie to a new place, she's usually pretty chill, if she's on her short leash. She just needs a lot of activity, or she's a monster at home.

Did you find out how old she was? A lot of Belgians go grey early. Elsie already has grey on her muzzle, and she'll be 12 months old in three days. That doesn't mean the Mal you saw wasn't older, lol, just a funfact.

You can see the grey in this one, from today.

They're really great dogs. A lot of Mals are a lot more 'on' than Elsie is--she's way higher energy than any of the GSDs I grew up with, but she's a couch potato compared to some of the Mals I've seen.

The Malinois, pronounced Mal-en-wah or Mel-en-wah. They're short coated, like a GSD.

If they were a long coat, they were a Terv, if they had a short coat, they were a Mal. <3 You're lucky--it's fun to see rare breeds.

By marked like a GS(d?) you mean saddled, right?

What color/fur type was the dog?

How exciting! That sounds like a lot of fun.

That would about kill me. If it's under 65, I'm cold.

Elsie isn't much of a snuggler in the summer, though, since it's hot here. She hates the heat. In the winter, though, she sleeps on me.

At least there's internet! I've never lived anywhere that not having heat would be a hardship. It's always nice-ish out, here. It gets dangerously hot in the summer, but I love the heat. I'm a lizard.

I'm working towards a BS in Biological Sciences with a focus in Evolution and Ecology.

I love getting paid. <3

I'm not sure what I want to do after college.

That sounds like amazing fun! Plants are amazing, the way they work. They're fascinating, although they aren't my thing.

I'm a student, but I get paid.
