Ok, first of all, German Shepherds are very loyal, very protective, and very easy to train. So is a Malinois, however, Malinois are very hyper and need a very strong hand to control them. I would recommend a German Shepherd, Mastiff or even Rottie before I would recommend a Malinois. As for sex, it doesn’t matter. It also doesn;’t matter if you get the dog altered, though I would highly recommend it. What does matter is that the dog is mature. You can not get a 6 month old, or even a 1 yr old and get the protection out of it. 18 months or older is what you really want to get. I would suggest a male and only because they are larger. Police and military in the past have always used males, you rarely find females as K-9s. The best part about a German Shepherd is they look the part and that is often enough to warn of intruders. Many people don’t know Malinois so they may go ahead and test them.

it doesnt really matter if its a male or female. it actually kinda matters on the breed. a german shepard or a golden retriever would be a smart guard dog
