I wonder whether these Malinois were 'family protection dogs' of the kind being sold to families by Jesse Smith and his incompetent ilk. See this case:

Jesse Smith is, despite the death of this step-son in the jaws of a 'family protection dog' he'd trained, back to selling these same dogs to families. He's back to advertising them as 'safe family pets'.

At any rate, trained or not, the Malinois is being bred for instability, high arousal, and quickness to attack (check out the IPO breeding standards). It's no longer a breed one should keep in a household, even though it's not yet as bad as the pit bull types.
