How many times have you spotted a dog and thought you knew the breed only to find out that you were wrong?!

Thought you saw a German shepherd? Are you sure it isn’t a Belgian Malinois? We know, they look like twins, but they’re a completely different breed, altogether! Here are some more breeds that could pass off as twins!

Belgian Malinois are very similar to German Shepherds. One way to tell them apart is that the German shepherd is longer than it is tall, while Belgian Malinois is more square.
