Belgian or German?

Guess which one is Hunter? David was reading one day about Navy SEALs and the dogs they use are called Belgian Malinois, so he googled it to see what they are, and wow, sure looks like our Hunter! We were just told he was a German Shepherd, possibly a mix, but now we're wondering if part of that mix is Belgian?! Of course, they are super high energy dogs that require a ton of attention and training and they want a job to do or they will become neurotic, so guess whose days just got a little bit busier?

One of our friends from church is a K9 police officer and he trains German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois, and we showed him the pictures of Hunter and he said he sure looks like a full blood Belgian. I kind of think he's a mixture of both, but now that I know how smart he is, I'm very disappointed in him for not being house trained yet! Riley has really been working with him on sit, stay, down, etc. and he's doing great on those, but he doesn't seem to want to be housebroken, OR sleep past 5:30am.

Good thing he's cute. That's all I can say.
