The Belgian Kennel Club Saint Hubert has started an investigation into possible falsification of pedigrees with the Malinois. The KMSH has received a notification that there may be tampered with pedigrees, and will perform some thorough investigation, as the KMSH told Dogzine.. Meanwhile KMSH has contacted the owners of the dogs. The FCI has also informed organisations with a circulaire.
For the duration of the study, the dogs are suspended, and may not take part in exhibitions or other recognized dog events and competitions, the dogs must not be used to breed and may not be transferred to new owners.
These are mainly dogs in Belgium, but also a dog that is registered in the Dutch NHSB, the dog Ring Star F. Kuno, son of Fun du Bois de la Limite, also suspended. In addition, the investigation includes:
