A dog sitting in a living room.She is currently 7 months, the picture is older. I got her from a family with no papers. They said she was purebred but I'm not too sure.

They are very intelligent and they are used in law enforcement a lot.

Wow what a cutie! She appears to be a Belgian Malinois. With her short hair and fine lines she looks to be 100% , but only DNA would make sure. I found some really great pictures and I think your fur baby is among them!

It would impossible to really answer your question correctly but she sure looks like she has a large portion of the Belgian Malinois breed.
I'm glad you are getting a DNA test because this would give you the information you're asking about.

Belgian Malinois purebred puppies/dogs are some of the most expensive dogs in the world so if you did not pay a substantial amount of money for her, she is most likely not purebred.
This is what I mean by large sum of money:
"You should budget anywhere from $3,500 upwards to $9,000 or even more for a Belgian Malinois with top breed lines and a superior pedigree. The average cost for all Belgian Malinois sold is $1,200.
In general, you can expect to pay between $1,300 and $2,500 for an 8-week-old puppy."

This is a good link to check out as it has a lot of information about this breed:

The most important thing you can do for her is to be sure she has a vet and receives all of her shots/vaccinations on time.

Wishing happy days ahead with your beautiful dog. I know you will not mind if she has another mix in her background but be sure to post back with the DNA results.

Normally the answers we give here are based on the appears of the animal in the photo. From the photo, your dog looks like she has a lot of Belgian Malinois in her. Nobody here is an expert on guessing the breed of your dog, and your vet isn't either. The vets normally have a better chance of identifying the dog's breed than other people do. The only true way to tell if your dog is a pure breed without paper is to order a DNA test for the dog. These can be quite expensive if you ask your vet to do one. They are a bit cheaper if you buy a test yourself and do it at home. The test will tell you about the dog and hopefully, give you an idea about the parents.

One thing for sure is a test will answer your questions. There are many breeders around that pass off dogs as purebred animals but can not supply you with any of the papers. Normally if you do buy a purebred and have paid for the dog the parents should be registered and you should receive papers to register your dog. I own a Bichon Fraise now and I would not guarantee that my dog is purebred at all. Too many people where I live are breeding these dogs and it would be so hard to prove one way or the other without a DNA test which I am not willing to pay for or care about. I think loving an animal is important no matter if it is purebred or not.
