Just thought I'd share in here - please share among your QLD friends looking for a performance Malinois - not for the faint hearted as these are kennel dogs with little or no training but too affectionate to pass as military dogs. Or if happy to travel, your interstate friends as well!

Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF )Security and Fire School will be offering a viewing of 7 male and 8 female Belgian Malinois,varying in age from 18 months to 7 years of age. The purpose of the viewing is to give people an opportunity to sight the canines prior to a tender submission.

The majority of the canines on offer have failed to display the attributes required of a Military Working Dog. Most commonly the dogs have an affectionate disposition, lacking in aggression. Others have failed to meet the strict health requirements for breeding or are mothers requiring a comfortable retirement. All canines have been assessed as suitable for pet life and are of a friendly nature. Some however are a little boisterous and are unsuitable for homing with young children.

Canines are predominately untrained; they may acknowledge basic commands but for the most part have no basic obedience. They are indeed trainable and basic obedience training is highly recommended. Pedigree papers are not provided but all canines have been microchipped, de-sexed and fully vaccinated.

To comply with Defence Procurement Guidelines, canines must be sold by Public Tender. This requires that interested persons submit a written monetary offer for the desired canine and outline their intended use of the dog via a short questionnaire. This will be provided on the day of viewing. Although canines are required to be tendered, the monetary offer may not necessarily secure the desired canine. Applications will be assessed by a board of members who will determine the most suitable home with the best interests of the canine.

Canines will be available for viewing on Fri 27 April, between the hours 10am and 11.30am at Military Working Dog Training and Supply Flight, RAAF Security and Fire School (corner of Haigslea Amberley Road and Tarakan Road, RAAF Base Amberley.

Tenders will be finalised 4pm, Wednesday 2 May. If you are interstate or unable to attend the viewing you can request a tender application by emailing [email protected]. Tenders may be emailed or posted to Military Working Dog Training Supply Flight, attention Tender Board, or completed by hand on the day of viewing.
