About "Mac"

DOB: Jul 08, 2004
Breed: Belgian Malinois

UKC: Dantero's Mac de Dubois **
AKC/FCI: Vassiliev des Contes d'Hoffmann

7/8/2004 - 9/7/14
Mac is a large Malinois, 85 lbs and 27 inches, red/fawn color, from mainly Belgian bloodlines (Muizenbos, Groentenhof, Rambo, Toby, Elgos). He originally had no white on him, but his feet greyed out early, and now at 4 he looks like he's got white feet. Mac was imported from Europe by Philippe Belloni from Patrick Dubois of the Contes d'Hoffmann kennel in France at 18 months of age. I purchased him 1 month later. Philippe described him as "an exceptional dog for breeding, the best I have seen in the United States at this time." Before being imported he worked for the Paris Public Transportations Services (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens-RATP), which is the French subway police, as a K9 doing crowd control on the French subways, spending his days working in some very tough conditions. However, there were control issues, so the handler sold him. Mac was trained by me for French Ring with Philippe, then a small group I had that included Brenda Arao and Mark Saccocio, and ultimately SCABR, and made it to FRIII. He is now retired from competition, he became to difficult to control to continue trialing.
Mac is a strong, confident, athletic (easily jumps FRIII maximums) dog with a grip to match his size. He's a social dog, but with a dominant personality, NOT a dog for a beginner handler. Good with females, pups and non-dominant males. Mac has sired his first litters, and will be available for stud to approved females. He's producing extremly high drives, social/stable personalities, good structure, and very fast entries.

When he was 2 one of Mac's canines was capped by Dr. Brook Niemiec of www.dogbeachdentistry.com. He had some wear from chewing chain link and one tooth broke during bungy work, the other was capped to prevent it from breaking. Update: Something happened during the capping, and the tooth died afterwards, causing the capped tooth to weaken and break off when he was 5, cap and all.

** Mac was registered with the UKC on 2/1/2008 as Dantero's Mac de Dubois, and from now on will be referred to by this name. His AKC name can not be changed and he will remain Vassiliev des Contes d'Hoffmann on AKC documents and in the OFA/CERF databases. People who wish to know the reason behind the name change are welcome to contact me.
