Mysuru: A rare dog breed known as Belgian Malinois was gifted to the city police by a canine trainer.
BC Pramod has donated the two-month-old puppy to the Mysuru city police dog squad and this is for the first time that a Belgian Malinois is being used by the squad.
The dog squad has named the puppy ‘Yodha’ and will be trained by the dog squad trainer Manju.
Pramod handed over the puppy to the city Police Commissioner Dr Chandragupta in the presence of City Armed Reserve DCP and dog squad trainer Manju.
Belgian Malinois are squarely built, proud, and alert herders standing 22 to 26 inches. Strong and well-muscled, but more elegant than bulky, there’s an honest, no-frills look about them, as befit dogs built to work hard for their feed. A breed hallmark is the proud carriage of the head. Coat colors range from a rich fawn to mahogany. The black ears and mask accentuate bright, questioning eyes the color of dark Belgian chocolate.
