Protection Dog Profile: Impulse
Impulse is Creed’s sister, and possesses the same gorgeous coat and markings that he has. She is not only a beautiful Belgian Malinois, but she is also a very loving girl. Impulse is affectionate, loves to cuddle with the family she’s been raised with, and has great house manners. She wants to be your friend and take care of you and your family. This sweetheart loves to swim with the kids and plays pool games with them! She loves to go for runs and can keep up with the best long-distance runner without tiring. When she’s at home, she snuggles up for some loves or rests peacefully beside your feet. She is very intelligent, and has strong bites, great drive, and great grips, all of which are important when she’s protecting you and your family. Impulse is fairly young, but extremely talented due to her intelligence, so she will be with you for years to come, helping keep you safe.
Impulse is trained in all basic obedience, including being house-trained. She sits, stays, downs, stays in place, heels, and comes on and off leash. She is personal protection-trained dog, so no one is getting by her to get to you or your loved ones. She is sweet and happy when she’s playing with you or with children, but when a threat materializes, she is all business, and takes whatever actions are necessary to neutralize that threat. Impulse is eager to please and won’t run away from danger. Even when her job is done, she is still on alert, but she is calm and sweet until the next time duty calls. She is trained for home intruders, carjacking, and any situation you find yourself in during the course of your day. She flies on airplanes well, and always behaves on the plane and in the airport. You can take her out in public, where she will act like the perfect dog while you can feel safe and protected.
Belgian Malinois dogs can vary a lot in appearance, from sable to red to black to light tan, and all with different facial markings and masks. They can be short or long haired, and they vary in size from medium to large. Malinois belong to the working dog class, and were originally bred as herding dogs in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and other European countries. They are popular now in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Hong Kong. They love to have a job to do, and their typical tasks for police work include odor and explosive detection, detecting accelerants (for arson investigations), sniffing out narcotics, and tracking human suspects for police and search and rescue missions. They are a popular choice for personal protection because they are a dedicated working dog that takes pride in their work and are very attached to their pack (their owners). They are agile and healthy dogs overall, smaller than German Shepherds, and live up to 14 years without any issues. Belgian Malinois routinely place high in Dog Trials worldwide. These dogs have lots of energy, and are sweet, loyal, and loving working dogs.
